Re: What are the most important components of sustainable living?

Ive not yet.. I need to wait for money :') So it's expensive? How is that like a thrift store then? The prices are set by the individuals selling it. So it depends on the seller you buy from. I just have no money because I spend it all on bills.. I feel like that's not as beneficial as it attempts ...

Re: Does anybody here have solar panels? Any feedback?

My neighbors have solar panels, and they aren't really seeing any savings. Like many others have said, its more for doing your part to help with clean energy consumption. It's so weird heading this, because my neighbors have said they really do experience significant savings now that they have thei...

Its great because its reusing old clothes and its not supporting big commercial clothing companies. That sounds cool, have ...

I'm still on the fence about whether an electric toothbrush is actually worth it.
It is I pinky promise. Ask any dentist anywhere.
It just seems superfluous to me. Especially when I can get a biodegradable one that works just as well.

Re: Animals that are close to extinction

Animals dont really have the capability to destroy on the scale of humans. Because thumbs. What do you mean "because thumbs"? That comment makes no sense whatsoever because it's not our thumbs that make us so detrimental, but our brain and technology. Humans have powers of logic and reason that sur...

Uggh cant watch that show anymore after the episode where the kid with cancer got a pitbull, and then dies a few months later. Really heart wrenching.
That's awful. At least the kid and the dog had some time together first.

Re: Pesticide Salads

I think a salad is definitely better than a sandwich. They would use the same quality vegetables in a salad as they would in a sandwich. So its better to get a salad than white bread and cheap deli meat. Just don't eat the dressing with the salad. As someone who is not really a fan of bread, I woul...

I think in certain states, private school is the way to go. Unfortunately not everyone can afford it. Because public education is controlled by the states not the federal government, it varies greatly from state to state.
Agreed. I think private schools are way too unmonitored, however.

This thread is kind of depressing. Why do we as humans have to destroy everything we get our hands on?
Because humans tend to only focus on what's good for themselves and while most animal species in nature do this, humans have a larger impact on the system than other animal species.

Re: Prescription pills

To be honest, when I first started taking prescription antidepressants (at 13) the first thing my doctor wanted me to try was proper sleep hygiene (Not using screens before bed, setting up a nighttime routine, ect). I don't think all doctors want to prescribe drugs, I think it's usually a last reso...

Unless you fit into a specific group of the population, sitting back and watching the "show" is not an option.

Re: Planned Obsolescence in products

Things like shoes that are only good for one season before they start to look and feel like crap. The soles come out; if they are heels the heel part gets all worn down and ragged; sneakers that get holes super easy This. Even sneakers that cost $100+ dollars, showing significant wear after 6 month...

Re: Meal planning

An hour a week is definitely manageable. I probably spend about 2 hrs a week meal planning, and in my opinion it's too much time. Out of curiosity, do you do full on meal planning where it's literally just heat and eat or meal planning where everything is prepped ahead of time and you just toss it ...

Re: Rescue vs. non rescue puupy
