General Info

We love hearing from you. We want to hear your thoughts on what we post, work we do, and things you've found that are relevant to the environment, interesting, heartbreaking or fun. Building community is really important to us, and we want everyone to feel welcome here. If you've never done anything even vaguely eco-friendly in your life, you are just as welcome as those that base their lives around being friendly to the environment. To ensure that our page meets our mission of nourishing the community and the environment together, sometimes, we will delete comments. - We will delete any comments attacking anyone else in the community. - We will delete comments that are using the environment as a way push a particular agenda that is not, in fact, environmentally sound. That's not what we're here for. - We will delete conspiracy-based comments accusing us of having strange secret agendas, because they're too silly for words and we're all about 'the standard you walk past' Serial offenders will be banned. We'd much rather be spending our time taking on useful feedback and working towards a better environment for all of us.

Quoting George Monbiot: “Hypocrisy is the gap between your aspirations and your actions. Greens have high aspirations – they want to live more ethically – and they will always fall short. But the alternative to hypocrisy isn’t moral purity (no one manages that), but cynicism. Give me hypocrisy any day.”
