Eco-Living

Eco-Living is Ecobeetle's page on ideas to live with less impact on our environment. It follows a simple 3 step approach to living - reduce our consumption and recycle what we can; restore what we damaged; and sustain what we have.  There are real health benefits to be gained by breathing clean air, drinking clean water, and eating healthy food. Simple steps such as reducing the amount of pollution from our cars, and cleaning products we dispose down the drain helps.

Air, Water, and Food

We all depend on the Earth's ecosystems to provide us with air, water and Food. Eco-Living is a site dedicated to finding products that help us to develop lifestyles that tread more softly on the Earth. Ecosystems are natural conveyor belts in which the living re-cycle waste and dead products. The 'conveyor belt' can sputter to a halt when we introduce chemicals it can not recycle or when we remove important components that make it function.

Beside what we do around our home, there are some very creative people who are rethinking how we live in our cities and towns. One of those projects is the Arcosanti Project. Here is what they have to say: "Suburban sprawl, spreading across the landscape, causes enormous waste, frustration and long-term costs by depleting land and resources. Dependency on the automobile intensifies these problems, while increasing pollution, congestion, and social isolation. Arcosanti hopes to address these issues by building a three-dimensional, pedestrian-oriented city. Because this plan eliminates suburban sprawl, both the urban and natural environments should keep their integrity and thrive. Arcosanti is a prototype: if successful, it will become a model for how the world builds its cities."
