Self-Sufficiency Courses Online
It takes 13 tonnes of water to produce a single modern smart phone. Everything comes with Carbon foot prints and taxes, while children work in sweatshops in third world countries to produce goods to feed the endless hunger of global consumers. Everywhere, campaigners are working tirelessly to raise awareness of the real cost behind the food we eat and the lives we live, while more and more people are beginning to wonder if there is a better way.
Consider permaculture – a discipline that advocates for the creation of self-sustaining ecosystems that can provide for, both the needs of the people who live in them, and the creatures who live around them.
Other popular changes include the relentless push for more and more recyclables in our daily lives. In the UK alone, we now recycle more than 45% of our household waste, which is good, until you consider that other countries like Germany and Sweden manage 60%.
The ecological arguments for self-sufficiency in food are sound – huge amounts of energy and pollution are caused to ship food around the world to reach our plates. And in an age where food costs are increasing, the economic arguments for learning to grow your own have rarely been as compelling.
