Urban Gardens and Lifestyle Choices

2 thoughts on “Urban Gardens and Lifestyle Choices”

  1. First of all, thanks for sharing! I stumbled across your blog a few weeks ago and have been really enjoying your posts. I really enjoyed reading the Niko Paech interview as well and was really struck by his idea that austerity is really relative and that it would depend on a person’s desire for material self-realization. He’s really brilliant and it was very thought-provoking to read, so thank you.

    I think that the answer to your question about ethics and sustainability is something that would probably change over time. It seems like with the examples of people that you mentioned, Mr. Paech and the primate researcher, although at the beginning of a career it seems more important to fight the sustainability battle in one way, things change over time. I think being conscious and transparent about what you’re doing as you’re doing it will help you make the right decisions. As long as you’re fighting on the side of sustainability, you’re in the right place.

    1. Thanks for your thoughts, Shelby! You’re right that it’s relative, and I like the thought that things change over time. I guess the golden middle and making conscious choices is the way for me to go right now. Thank you for reading!
