foot notes that inspire

June 3rd, 2008

“Think green.” “What will you do to counter climate change?” “Reduce-Reuse-Recycle” “Read the groundbreaking work Plan B 3.0 by Lester Brown.” “The average American uses 580 lbs. of paper each year–that’s over 1 1/2 lbs per day!”

These and similar signature tags are appearing more and more in business emails that cross my desk. While heartening, I hope people don’t stop there. Slogans can get you thinking–though they are most valuable when they inspire to action. What words would inspire you to action?

My favorite that I have copied to my signature footer is:
“Please consider the environment before printing this email!”

When I first saw this tag line used I thought, duh! What a wonderful and simple statement that could really save paper and trees. Read the rest of this entry »

Ethanol Debacle

What do corn fields have in common with rainforests? Not much. That’s the problem. There are so many reasons why producing ethanol biofuel from corn and other crops is a very bad idea. How much land, diesel and water resources will be needed to produce this “renewable” fuel? How much forest will be replaced by monoculture farms that deplete top soil and add chemicals to the groundwater?

Seeing dollar signs and spurred by trade agreement incentives, Brazil and other nations are Read the rest of this entry »

Green Cemeteries

Natural burial has been on my mind quite a bit lately. There are very few green cemeteries in the U.S., nor many around the world. I would like to see natural burial as an option for everyone at the end of their life. Take a look at the Land For The People channel on YouTube.

As mentioned in another post, we’ve created playlists of interesting videos. Among them are several about natural burial.

Did you know that “backyard burial” the practice of interring loved ones on your own land is legal in most areas? Read the rest of this entry »

Why Conserve Land?

October 2nd, 2007

There need to be places on this planet where land is untouched and preserved. I want to reiterate a paragraph from a previous blog entry:

I too often hear, But no one’s DOING anything with that land! Like so many other people, I used to look at open land and say, Nothing is there. We are more used to the notion of developing land into something, or using it for something. The notion of wild land has become a radical concept in the last century. Not only is it healthy for the planet to have large untouched and wild areas, wilderness regions are the birthright of all the peoples of this planet. We need places where we can experience the pure power and majesty of nature doing its thing. While some lands might be available for visitors to explore and experience directly, we also need untouched areas that preserve the biodiversity of the planet.

Among many other reasons, we need mature and large stands of trees to absorb carbon dioxide, store the carbon and release oxygen into the atmosphere. Read the rest of this entry »
