Reviving Rivers: A Sign of Hope for the Colorado

By Suzanne York,  6degreesofpopulation.org.

With over 7 billion people on the planet, demand for water for household, agricultural, and industrial use is increasing even faster than population growth.  Many areas, such as the southwestern U.S. and northern Mexico, are already experiencing competing demands on water in a region heavily reliant on this most precious of natural resources.

Specifically, much of that water comes from the Colorado River, and at a high environmental cost.  Nearly 90 percent of the annual flow from the Colorado – 5 trillion gallons – goes to California, Arizona, and five other states in the Colorado River basin.  And while it used to reach the Gulf of California, today the river no longer makes it to the sea.  Mexico gets a paltry 500 billion gallons a year, per a treaty with the…

Want to leave a Handprint?  Restore the Earth is a campaign that is about working to restore the great ecosystems around the planet; forests, oceans, freshwater, tundra, corals and the soils – they are the greatest allies we have for our future, to give us a better quality of life, clean air, food security, pure water and to fight climate change.

The campaign message is simple – we can all do something positive and play our part in the vital effort to restore the planet’s eco-systems; through our positive handprints.

Green Optimization

In the movement to "go green" and the increasing demand for products that deliver a sustainable practice to buyers fingertips, a lot has been going unmentioned within the circles of the press. 

The energy used to manufacture and transport products is often hidden, and it can be the prime target when talking about conserving energy. 

Catherine Mohr works on making robots. She is a self proclaimed geek that went green. Someone after my own heart, she set out to build her house in an optimized fashion by looking at the data. Her TED talk describes her process very well, and in it she summarizes how many decisions we make that appear to be small can be the leaders in energy…

Biomimicry - Using Nature's Ideas

Recently I've been watching lots of TED Talks online, and I've been finding lots of inspirational content that deserves to be shared. One of the talks was by author Janine Benyus, who has devoted her time to showcase Nature's genius. Biomimicry is her latest novel in which she proposes that designers should emulate what is seen in nature.

Since her writings she has expanded to developing two organizations, the Biomimicry Guild and the Innovation consultancy, which have recently merged into Biomimicry 3.8, a certified B Corporation. Combined the organizations focus on "biomimicry innovation consulting, professional…

Compostable Toilets

I run an Equine Assisted Growth and Learning facility in Southern California. Our current project is building a compostable toilet out of reclaimed pallets. We are looking to turn all waste into something useful and starting with the restroom at the horse facilities we thought was key. I've researched how it works but have some concerns due to pathogens and such in human waste. Would we be better off using home made horse manure compost and worm castings for our organic vegetable garden and the…See More
