Simply, what does Ecological Living mean? It seems obvious because they are words we hear every day, but maybe that makes extracting a real meaning from them harder. In common usage ‘Ecological’ means anything vaguely attached to preserving or sustaining the Natural World (again, what does that actually mean? Even plastic comes from natural vegetation, sort of). Even if we can get to a meaningful common usage, ‘Eco’, ‘Green’ and ‘Sustainable’ have all been made woolly and vague, hollowed out by consumer goods marketing departments, eager to keep selling whatever it is they sell.
These same problems loom, even greater and more problematic, if we look at ‘Living’. What really is it to live? Let’s ease ourselves in with ecology first. We’ve got a reading list, after skim/rereading, we’ll post some reviews. If you have any recommendations for the next round of study, please suggests away.
