Essential Oil Diffuser

Essential Oil Diffuser

This Essential Oil Diffuser from InnoGear has been working perfectly for my wife and I for over a year now and I like how it looks on our night stand. We use it every night before we go to bed, it helps us relax and I find that the peppermint essential oil helps clear my sinuses. I really like how the unit automatically turns off when it runs out of water, you can also set it to run continuously or go on for thirty second intervals to extend the run time. Some of our favorite essential oils are Eucalyptus, Lavender, Orange, Peppermint, Lemon and Tea Tree! When buying essential oils make sure they are Organic and undiluted.

Green Friday

Green Friday

Green Friday is a great alternative to what the majority of consumers do the day after Thanksgiving. The holiday season is truly my favorite time of year, but not because of the sales on Black Friday or the gifts. It’s something about the change in weather and the great food! I wanted to share a brilliant idea with you that can be so positive in so many ways. Just go outside and get into nature. Go for a hike or a walk just don’t go buy stuff. Feed your soul, recharge your spirit and get some exercise at the same time!

For those of you who live in California. The California State Parks Foundation has partnered with Save the Redwoods League and California State Parks to offer over 13,000 free vehicle day-use passes to more than 100 state parks for use on Green Friday.

Boogie Board E-Writer

Boogie Board E-Writer

When I take notes I prefer to use my Boogie Board E-Writer, I keep it right on the refrigerator and can write down what I want to make for dinner or what I need to add to my grocery list. It really bothers me when I waste paper so I do my best to avoid it!  When I used to use a notepad to take notes I would always add the information to my phone or computer and then end up throwing the paper note away, I mean I could compost it but it probably has nasty chemicals that I don’t want in my compost so I’d rather just use my Boogie Board E-Writer.

Circular Economy

Circular Economy

The Circular Economy is the future! As I have said in the past, “I believe that the modern day society we live in is out of balance with nature and inherently unsustainable. We live on a finite planet with finite resources, so we have to be smart how we use them, the change we need will not come from government but everyday people like you and me. I do what I think is right and hope that some will follow in my footsteps.” Check out the video below to learn more about The Circular Economy and keep reading to find out how you kan help make a difference!

Permaculture Design Course at East End Eden

Permaculture Design Course at East End Eden
Earlier this year I decided I was fully committed to living a Permaculture lifestyle. It was obvious that I had to take a PDC  also known as a Permaculture Design Course so I could learn everything as much as I could and get some hands on experiences! So I did some research and visited a few places that offered the course. When I went to visit Connor Jones at East End Eden I felt an instant connection. Conner took me on a tour of his Property and showed me all the amazing things he was doing. It was at that point that I knew I wanted to take my Permaculture Design Course at East End Eden.
Check out OjaiPermaculture.com to when the next permaculture course will be at East End Eden. I would highly recommend it as Conner is an amazing instructor. Also feel free to check out this article written during the course.

The High Price of Materialism

The High Price of Materialism

Materialism is all bad, it’s so sad that things and the fear of losing those things can make people so crazy. Materialism can lead to depression, anxiety, and general unhappiness. Also, any concern for the wellbeing of our environment goes right out the window.

A message of hope – Sustainability

A message of hope – Sustainability

What happens when Louis Schwartzberg and Morgan Freeman collaborate? A poetic message filled with hope, optimism, and Sustainability.

Presented to world leaders at the 2014 United Nations Climate Summit in New York, this short film shows that the world we believe in is possible. We already have the appropriate technology to harness nature sustainably. Thanks to permaculture (and all the seers who helped shape it), we constantly learn how to regenerate land, work more harmoniously with nature while benefiting from a fertile planet.

What is Permaculture?

by Josh Noland 0 Comments
What is Permaculture?

What is Permaculture? Well this is what I used to tell them “Permaculture is a design science for your life, based upon the highest ethical standards. It includes environmental design, integrated water resource management, and regenerative agricultural systems modeled from natural ecosystems.” It’s what get’s me out of bed ever morning!

Now I tell them that “Permaculture is a holistic approach to land and life design!” it’s also  what get’s me out of bed ever morning!

Beyond Sustainable, what’s that?

Beyond Sustainable, what’s that?

Beyond Sustainable is a place where you can learn and share ideas that can help us be more regenerative and self-sufficient.

We live in a world to today where corporations will sell you anything to make a buck, no matter how toxic or wasteful and that makes me really sad. We live on a finite planet with finite resources, and if we continue the way we have, it will just be a matter of time before we are forced to change. We must adapt our ways to meet the growing demand for resources and start to correct the damage we have already done.
