Dan Barasch and James Ramsey took a cue from the High Line, a reclamation of an old above ground line that had been changed into a park. Taking it a step further they proposed an underground park in the long abandoned underground trolley station under Delancey street.
A sustainable food chain will need to be a mishmash of different types of farming from regional farming to individuals tending small community garden plots. Rooftop and community gardens cut the “food miles” of the produce for urban residents.
Part of an initiative to increase biodiversity in the city, Paris, France wants to expand rooftop gardens.
Ever tried to get the Goodwill to pick an item that needs repair? Good luck with that. The French “resource shop” model, however, takes anything, regardless of condition… and that’s good for keeping useful materials (if not useful products) out of landfills.
The NFL makes efforts towards greener energy, bringing more attention to the need for renewable energy. But is a little effort too little?
Many of us are doing our part to protect the environment while reducing our impact as well. There are more people than ever embracing environmentally friendly, green technologies. There are solar powered garage doors, mobile device chargers, and even chargers installed into one’s backpack.
We know that, on a personal level, efficiency saves money. It also reduces our impact on our strained environment which is becoming a bigger concern with each passing year. There are many average people who are changing their habits and the way they interact with their environments so as to embrace green living.
Extinction of species is an unfortunate problem of homogenization. As we learn more about the environment, we as a society have begun to make changes in many areas of our life. We drive hybrids, have solar powered garage doors, and recycle.
With each passing year, we learn more and more about our impact on the environment and the depletion of many of our vital resources. As we learn more, individuals are looking to do what they can to reduce their impact and lessen their burden on our planet.
Ideas are where all innovation begins. The environment is not only becoming a big part of the public dialogue, it is also fueling research, education, and business. The green job sector is amongst the fastest growing in a fairly unstable and stagnant economy.
Though not something that most of us in the Western world think much about, the patterns of human migration are contingent on both changes in technologies, as well as changes in the environment. While many of us leave for work each day, closing our garage doors and heading out of suburbia to our commuter jobs, there are people who are being directly effected by climate change.
By all accounts, the environment seems to be in peril. As years continue to pass, we continue to see the consequences of human-caused actions. Depletion of resources, climate change, and the extinction of species have been increasing on an alarming scale.
