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

Water, and Food
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.
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
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."
