  • Fossil Fuel Divestment: Part I – Why and How

    The fossil fuel divestment movement is gaining momentum in religious organizations around the world. But there remains many large-scale religious groups (i.e. the Catholic Church), seminaries, universities, and individual houses of worship that still choose to pay polluters. Our sister site, EdenKeeper, recently published a series of two articles that show the necessity of divesting, address […] More

  • The Power to Change the Economy from Within

    When we look at how our market economy affects the environment, it appears that all common sense goes out the window. According to the prevailing economic wisdom, it makes perfect sense for us to clear vast swathes of tropical rainforest to make way for oil palm plantations and soya beans, to pursue the last few […] More

  • Can You Live on 4 Liters of Water a Day?

    Those of us in the first world don’t tend to think twice about our water usage, and unless we’re on a backpacking trip or in a dry camp, or adhering to some other self-imposed rationing, we’re probably likely to use quite a bit of water everyday.

    First, context:  Homo sapiens is an actively interdependent species of agents with responsibilities as collaborative participants in this web of life: all our destinies are intertwined.  There is, in any healthy community a social contract, and its acknowledgement is emerging more and more vocally from our society’s closets and into our front yard again.  Thank […] More

  • Moving Markets

    Recently, I learned a great strategy for moving markets. Specifically, how to leverage consumer demand for greener goods to move large amounts of capital into the sustainable economy, and away from companies that are only profit driven and don’t mind externalizing their costs onto society. I’d like to share that strategy with you here, in […] More

  • Is Occupy Wall Street Really About CSR?

    Since the movement began, people have discussed goals/themes/demands of Occupy Wall Street and have found little clarity. In some ways this is the essence of the movement, but in an effort to define everything, many people assume it’s the anger of the common person directed towards banks for manipulating their money and tanking the economy.
