Life Is Good : Sustainable Living (National Geographic Documentary)
Sustainable living is a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual’s or society’s use of the Earth’s natural resources and personal resources. Practitioners of sustainable living often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering methods of transportation, energy consumption, and diet. Proponents of sustainable living aim to conduct their lives in ways that are consistent with sustainability, in natural balance and respectful of humanity’s symbiotic relationship with the Earth’s natural ecology and cycles. The practice and general philosophy of ecological living is highly interrelated with the overall principles of sustainable development.
Lester R. Brown, a prominent environmentalist and founder of the Worldwatch Institute and Earth Policy Institute, describes sustainable living in the twenty-first century as “shifting to a renewable energy–based, reuse/recycle economy with a diversified transport system.” In addition to this philosophy, practical eco-village builders like Living Villages maintain that the shift to renewable technologies will only be successful if the resultant built environment is attractive to a local culture and can be maintained and adapted as necessary over the generations.

In many cases sustainability is a code word for social security payments . If it is a lifestyle choice then they should not get any unemployment payments because they chose to move to a place with no employment prospects .
This looks like easy? . No it requires realistic thinking and working!!… Permiculture is a relatively new word and the fact is that it's not a new concept it's the "Oldest" it's in our nature, in our DNA to garden and socialise in one form or another..

Wish I could live with these people. They live in harmony with their environment and off grid. Good luck to them.
I watched the add and agree with her. Human beings do not have anything different ….animals do have souls. They have feelings. Nature has to win if we are to survive.

What a crock of shit. So you can feed yourself. Can you also magically now afford your land and healthcare?
Feeding yourself is *easy*. Everything else is hard.
where is this
if you'll wanna live like this go to the Micronesian pohnpei
Where's the NatGeo logo? Looks amateurish.
Kind of like a tiny tribe of Native American Indians. We know what the English, Dutch, Spanish, French did to those people. If we look at the Asian indigenous people we can see the Yayoi Japanese killing the Jomon Emishi and Ainu natives of the "Japanese" Islands. Han Chinese pushed out/crushed/subjugated all other peoples. Europe had indigenous people, the Indo-Europeans arrived, murdered, enslaved or drove them to the fringes or cold inhospitable places. Many many others, on and on it goes. Anyways, living like this is nothing new. It is just that people who live like this get destroyed/murdered/robbed/driven away by others. Much easier to take than to sacrifice and create.

I want/NEED to leave where I am right now…I HAVE to! I'm so stuck, and would probably take off if I didn't have my cats and 1 dog. I can't stand where I am, and can't even find some rinky dink job. I wish I could find a place to go away from pretty much everyone I know, be able to bring my animals, and earn my keep by "working the land", so to speak. I dream of a place hidden away, a little cabin with a fireplace, being snowed in, living off the food that was grown in the garden, with people that have no interest in facebook, and he city life. I can't tell you how much I need this. I've never been in such a "place" in my almostt 44 years of life.
Where is this place?
