Are you fed up of your life being controlled by supermarkets, big banks and chain stores? Rather be out walking the coast with your dog, than listening to junk media and angry politicians? Then you’ve come to the right place! At least 10% of site income is given to small charities, usually involving four paws and a tail.
At this pretty site, you can find oodles of useful and inspiring information on how to take back our green and pleasant land from corporate consumerism. ‘Green living’ is not about buying gadgets, switching to wind-turbine corporate energy companies or donating to carbon emission charities. It’s about living simply, putting spiritual wisdom before shopping, and knowing that the time spent with nature is more important than watching the news. You can find inspiration for your own county, and a nice selection of posts on general issues affecting our country. Make a proper pot of tea, and dig in!
This site breaks a few of the rules, so please help by sharing posts with those that resonate and do some good. In a world full of Internet narcissism, there is nothing to join, you don’t have to buy anything (though please consider a few nice zero waste lovelies from the Gift Shop to help support the site). Apart from Pinterest (a search engine), this site has no social media. After finding it took more time to work out how to use it (or how to leave it, after finding out how annoying and privacy-invading it all is), it was a relief to just shut it all down. The Internet is (or should be) about sharing helpful information. And ultimately, good writing is designed to inspire, make you laugh or cry, or help you to think for yourself. Not ask you to ‘tweet this!’
Trees are our kith and kin, birds flying in the sky, bees and wasps, butterflies and snakes, tigers and elephants. We need to understand that all species are related to each other, all of us have evolved together. The sun heats the soil, the soil feeds the trees, the trees feed the birds, the rain feeds the trees.
Sometimes I come across a tree which seems like Buddha or Jesus: compassionate, enlightened. Giving shade to a cow, berries to a bird, beauty to its surroundings, leaves for the soil, asking nothing in return. The tree is my church, the tree is my temple, the tree is my poem and the tree is my prayer. Satish Kumar
