This thread is not meant to be political. It is just memories and thoughts coming to surface. Remember Arbor Day, Earth Day, etc.? Well now there is Ecological Debt Day, or Earth Overshoot Day. Its the day that comes when we use more resources than the earth can renew in one year. It came and went August 13.
It got me to thinking. My take on buying and moving into a bus may be a good thing. A lot of what we (wife and I) are using is recycled or reclaimed. What we plan to use for energy and what we produce for waste (from fuel consumption to produce the energy used) will be less (smaller footprint).
Maybe we are having an affect on others by showing that it is possible to live on less. Will we turn around the me generation of consumers who are used to disposable goods? I doubt it but maybe a few people will stop and think.
Or maybe I just took the wrong meds this morning.
