The Robbing Frenzy
Honeybees are by nature a sane and very productive creature. They’re the perfect definition of sustainable living. Being in complete harmony with their surroundings. Sustaining themselves efficiently, indefinitely, and happily. All the while being in cooperation, balance, and benefit with mother nature. Unless… something happens that triggers pathological influence that influences their behavior.
In a bee hive the hive door is guarded by resident bees. They’re naturally programmed to protect it and it should be the one and only hole. Sometimes another hole can develop in the back which they’re not programmed to defend. A bee from another hive can then discover this back door and come in and steal honey. Escaping out the back with no problem.
Soon the word spreads and bees from all over find out about the hole and a robbing frenzy begins (greed). The bees lose their inclination for efficiency, order, cooperation, and sustainability. And doesn’t usually end until all the honey is gone. Which leads to the resident bees dying in winter due to starvation.
We’re doing the same thing as the honeybees with planet earth. We’ve found back doors (such as oil fracking) and are in a robbing frenzy draining the earth’s natural finite resources.
This website aims to be a guide to helping people and the planet thrive.
As I hope you’re starting to see. We need to make some drastic changes towards self sustainable living. These studies only show what science has been able to measure so far. There is so much more in our lifestyles that we could change that would not only make for a better planet, but a better you and better communities. In fact lets take a quick look at the state of our health:
- Obesity – 70% of the current population is overweight (cdc.gov)currently. Worse is that children’s obesity rate has never been higher! Which is 17% and rising which is leading to a life of pharmaceutical dependence and illness. Not to mention the current $147 billion a year we spend in health care costs
- Heart Disease – 50% of the American population will suffer from cardiovascular disease. (heart.org) Making it the number one killer. One out of every three deaths is from this disease.
- Type 2 Diabetes – Again, estimates predict by 2030 50% of the population will be pre diabetic or diabetic. (ncbi.nlm.nih.gov)
The crazy thing is that these diseases can be prevented by diet and lifestyle changes. You just have to stop being confused and misdirected by the marketers that want you to keep buying material goods and be enslaved in the system through work and health care.
Sustainable Living Practices
You can’t be an environmentalist, you can’t be an ocean steward, without truly walking the walk. And you can’t walk the walk in the world of the future- the world ahead of us, the world of our children-without eating a plant-based diet. -Academy Award winning filmmaker and environmentalist James Cameron
Low impact living can be accomplished easier than you may think. Not only that is that compared to the typical American lifestyle (favors fast, cheap, easy, fun, simple, and now) it can be a huge upgrade. Making you feel better, more financially secure, lower stress, and help prevents illness. Here are some sustainable living practices this website aims to promote:
- Less consumption and more simple living. Fulfillment comes from having our needs met and a living a balanced life. Not fulfilling every needless want (desire). Aim to purchase high utility goods that can last a lifetime. Keep the minimum amount of things as long as possible. Then, recycle properly.
- Give – “Make altruism and giving part of your life, and be purposeful about it,” -Buddah. Spending money on others instead of yourself leads to a higher level of happiness. Be of service to others. Ask yourself: “What can I actually do to help alleviate suffering?”.
- Exercise – Being a certified NASM personal trainer I would like to teach people how to properly exercise in a manner that doesn’t lead to you puking, or passing out at the end of a session. Low impact exercise that is built into a healthy lifestyle.
- Nutrition – “Eat food. Not too much. Mostly plants.” – Michael Pollan. Eating plant based is not only good for the environment, but is also the best for your long term health. Just remember to eat whole plant based foods as close as possible to their natural state and you can’t go wrong.
- Local & Organic – Get food from local sustainable farms, co-ops, farmer’s markets, or best of all grow your own food.
- Cruelty Free – Vote with your dollars to put an end to the mass suffering caused by industrialized livestock agriculture.
- Financial Independence – Become financially literate so you can stop living an unhealthy lifestyle and spend your time doing the things you really love.
- Connection – Everything is energy and we’re all connected. Lets get back to having a connection with nature through outdoor activities and sports that don’t involve a motor, our bodies, mind, friends, family, and communities.
- Mindfulness – Being present and mindful in everything we do.

Rainwater Harvesting Solutions Rainwater Harvesting
Water has become a highly precious resource. There are some places where a barrel of water costs more than a barrel of oil. — (Lloyd Axworthy)
“Endangered species” is quickly becoming a term we use to describe WATER on our planet! Our natural waterways are being harmed by urban storm runoff water. Humans along with every other living being need water to live. The first step to help this crisis is to become aware of the problems we’re causing and the planets current condition. Then use easy to implement solutions such as rainwater collection/harvesting to supply future generations with clean and healthy water.
