Planet earth is in crisis. Global warming leads to rising sea levels, bleaching of our coral reefs, and a whole other host of problems you’ve already heard of. Overproduction and over consumption degrades our environment and natural resources, and fills our planet with plastic and toxic waste.
You get the point. I could keep listing out negative shit. and you’ve probably heard it all before.
Yet nothing seems to change. Why?
We can’t rely on the world leaders to make the right decisions any longer. The change has to come from the bottom up, because it sure ain’t coming from the top down. The power is in YOUR hands.
Eco Peanut exists to educate and inspire humans to live sustainable, low-impact, self-sufficient lives. Our aim is to empower you to make small, compounding decisions that benefit you, your family, and the greater good.
Maybe you want to start small and grow your own herbs. Or maybe you’re ready to go gung-ho and flip the bird to the system and go completely off grid. Not matter what you’re able or willing to do, it all helps. Even one small action, on a global scale, can have a huge positive compounding effect.
Eco Peanut is team of passionate researchers, content creators, environmental activists and realists, looking to impact other positively by way of example.
We’ll talk about the following topics:
- Growing your own vegetables, no matter how limited your space
- Raising your own livestock, like backyard chickens or bees
- Homesteading 101 (canning, preserving, and home made recipes)
- Renewable energy and resource products for around the home
- Sustainable and low-footprint building solutions
- And much, much more…..
Most of the population does not have access to an abundance of space that comes with living on acres of farmland. Like you, we live in a smaller urban environments.
Just apply the litmus test to your way of life, and ask yourself:
- Are you damaging or helping the earth as a result of your lifestyle?
- How much of your own food do you produce?
- Do you even know how to the food you buy is produced?
- How much of your own energy do you produce?
- Are you living comfortably, without the worry of power bills and the increasing costs of basic living expenses?
The Vision: To empower you to live in a self sufficient way. There is no need to make any drastic changes; start small. Maybe that means installing rainwater harvesters on your downpipes? or maybe that means setting up a small chicken coop and veggie patch in your backyard?
Communities around the globe are moving in a sustainably beneficial way, and it’s great to see however there is still a lot of distance to cover, and a lot of damage to reverse.
