The old adage goes without saying, “Give a man a fish, feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish, feed him for a lifetime.”
Up ’til now, our post have been focused mainly on individual cutting-edge gadgets and specific developments. We’d like to shift gears towards presenting different aspects of the larger, more global issues in which we’re all deeply involved. We hope that by dropping this knowledge, you’ll see what we see: a genuine need for changes in consumption attitudes around the globe.
For the next couple weeks, we’ll be focusing on dropping posts on the bigger picture of the environment by viewing only a few topics and ideas from different angles (and thereby relating them to one another to gain a panoramic view of our interaction with the environment). Expect perspectives on things like how a simple t-shirt can choke out the fashion industry in Africa causing Mexican textile maquiladoras to dump waste into rivers, causing us to re-landscape the environment around us in an effort to make our environment look cleaner, which begs the question of whether “nature” is actually natural or if its simply a fabrication of what we’d like nature to look like -long exasperated sigh-.
Confused yet? So were we. We’d like to introduce you to our little friend, the red pill, to show you the truth behind the matrix of misconceptions about the environment.
Thanks for sticking with it, hope to catch you on the flipside.
