green: becoming less of a consumer

This isn't strictly interior design related, but it's the minimal/simple/green philosophy that I love so much.  It can translate into any area (and hopefully all areas) of our lives.  

I like that the author writes about pooling together and forming collaborations.  I think that's a great idea - to find other people who share similar views about limiting the resources that they use, and helping each other with that goal by sharing.  For real...I have a great Bosch mixer that I use maybe twice a month (and then, only for smoothies).  If I told my neighbors that they could borrow my mixer any time they liked, we would save the resources we would've spent if we all got one.

I've not been as conscious of living small the past few months as I want to be.  This article gave me new inspiration on how and why to live smaller.
