I'm not talking about meat eventually running out. I'm talking about high quality meat being available and sustainable in the long run. I'm thinking about all of the people in the world that eat meat.... Multiplying that times the amount if food... (more)

We do not eat animals for proteins, those are plentiful even in a vegetarian diet. We eat it to eliminate toxins present in grains and beans (presumably, artificial meat will also be OK), but most importantly to assume a number of micronutrients... (more)

I'll start off by saying I'm pretty noob to organic produce. I was thinking about signing up with a local CSA, but noticed they consider their farms as "sustainable agriculture" vs. organic. Does anyone know how much of a difference this would... (more)

Hi! I've done a lot of research on this topic. "Organic" is a government approved label and requires a government approved certifier inspect the farms, as with any government approved label you have to jump through a lot of hoops, and it can end... (more)

IMO, merino wool is a more sustainable option. Wool clothing lasts a LOT longer than cotton, bamboo or soy and comes in many weights--I wear it year-round. Check out Icebreaker, Ibex and of course Smartwool. Patagonia has some, too.

I'm in college and usually I (try to) avoid dining hall meat, but tonight they're serving plain cod cooked with butter and lemon juice. Do I need to worry about how the fish was sourced (more from a health standpoint than an ecological standpoint,... (more)

I'm totally fine eating everything on the list! I'm sure many of you are as well, but my interest is in how you think we (Paleo eaters) can help foster a sustainable food culture outside of our own sphere of influence.... (more)

I read Lierre Keith's book Vegetarian Myth about a year ago (great book!). For those who haven't read it, she responds to the argument that real food (i.e., not vegetarian) for all is unsustainable by saying maybe yes, but growing grain is also... (more)
