Homeproject


I just watched an amazing moving called Home.

It has beautiful cinematography that captures the beauty of our planet. It also shows what is happening to the planet today.

After watching I feel a greater need to reduce my footprint and I have an idea...

Most Americans love to get something new. But why does new have to mean manufactured and fresh from the factory. Why can't new be something new to you, or repurposed, or a new creation from something old. You see this a lot in art but not so much with household items. I'm not talking resold like in a thrift shop. I'm talking recreated like the items on this website: Uncommon Goods

I also feel the strong need to Act Local and Think Global more than ever. What if every community could sustain itsself? Each community has its own organic farm and local livestock. Each community had its own crafters. You have your own sources of energy and trade would be out of variety, not necessity. The Amish have it right in some respects but I don't mean to go back before electricity.

Definitely something to think about. Watch the movie and let me know what thoughts you have.
