When my bamboo bike was stolen from me last year I decided I was going to try to track it down. In the past I may have responded with anger and retaliation, but this time I decided that if I found the thief I was going to treat them with as much compassion and kindness as I could. Through a pretty crazy couple days of searching I did manage find the person who stole my bike. I didn’t strike out at him. I didn’t curse him out. Nope. I gave him a hug. I had never been in this scenario before, so I didn’t know exactly what to do. But I had practiced compassion, and that came through in the moment. Amazingly, I managed to film the experience and after nearly a year in the making I have produced a short film to tell the story. I hope that my compassion touched Johnny and will stick with him throughout life. And I hope that you’ll watch this film and my compassion will touch you and will inspire you to act with more compassion, kindness and understanding in your every day life.

Hey everyone. So I make these paper bags at home in 2 different sizes .They are made completely out of old newspapers and just ropes . First one can hold upto 4 kgs of weight and the second one can hold upto 2 kgs. . This is a perfect solution for you to stop using plastic bags for your daily shopping needs . Small retailers, hawkers out there can simply use these instead of selling products in plastic bags. . . DM me if anyone interested. Spread the word. #saynotoplastic #plasticfree #plasticfreedom #ecorightbags #leonardodicapriofoundation #unenvironment #singleuseplastic #preciousplasticindia #robgreenfield

Who doesn't like balloons ? I mean look at them , so beautiful , so colorful , makes you happy right ? . . But guess what! Balloons cannot be recycled . Usually balloons are made of 2 materials latex and mylar . Mylar is a type of plastic and will never biodegrade . Yes latex is a rubber which will biodegrade but usually all the balloons end up in landfills and they are so light weight that they can fly away anywhere and animals might end up eating them. So for your 10 minute entertainment you are risking your future. . . What can you do ? 1) Either don't use balloons at all 2) If you can't resist , atleast reuse them by deflating them. Use them in packaging or gift wrapping , decorating scrap books , or simply keep reusing the same balloon for all occasions . . . Start small . Do small changes at your own individual level. #saynotoplastic #swasthplanet #unenvironment #leonardodicapriofoundation #plasticfree #lifewithoutplastic #greendreamfoundation #robgreenfield

@robjgreenfield decidiu “vestir-se do lixo” que produziu durante um mês. E essa imagem mostra o resultado. “O visual impactou muitas pessoas, mas também me impactou. No último dia, me impressionou profundamente o quanto nossas ações individuais importam e quanto elas somam. Pense nisso. Esta é apenas a quantidade de lixo que o americano cria em um mês. Agora imagine um ano, dez anos. [...] Você é apenas um ser humano entre 7 bilhões e suas ações por si só não podem mudar o mundo inteiro. Mas podemos viver conscientemente e deixar nossa pequena parte do mundo um lugar melhor”, disse em sua rede social. E então, você já se questionou a respeito da quantidade de lixo que tem produzido? Quer algumas dicas para repensar a produção de resíduos sólidos?

#Repost @robjgreenfield with @get_repost ・・・ ‘The tiny house is in the completion stages and what you see in my hands is all the trash created so far. A mere 30 pounds (14 kg). I read a statistic that the average house build in the USA creates 8,000 pounds of trash. That is over 250 times more than I created! Plus, nearly 100% of the materials I’ve used were second hand... People often ask me why I do what I do. Basically, why I don’t choose a more “normal” life. I’ve found time and time again that the “normal” way destroys everything that I love behind the scenes. “Normal” destroys animals and harms people that I love, usually in far off places. It destroys the basic rights of all beings- fresh air, clean water, and a habitat. The ever creeping “normal" around the world destroys diversity and culture. This is one reason I have chosen to live simply in a tiny house. This is one reason that I don’t choose to live a “normal" life. I put the word normal in quotes because the absurd thing about all of this… is that there is no such thing as normal. Normal is a delusion. Normalcy is created in our minds by taking in our surroundings and settling that that’s the way the world is. The reality is that the world is incredibly diverse and that your “normal” is just that, yours. When you look at the bigger picture, for most of us fairly privileged people, you see that we are the exception. The US has 5% of the world’s population yet uses 25% of the world’s resources. That by definition is not normal. That is extreme. Living in a 100 sq. ft. house is considered extreme by many. But by living in this “extreme” manner I serve as a counterbalance to the extreme mainstream. I show people that there is a different way, and it’s not in a far-off place. It’s just around the corner. You just have to be looking, or at least have your eyes open.’

Lexi and Ally were best of friends and closely aligned in world view. We became aware of Rob Greenfield, our partner in permaculture, through Lexi after her epic bike journey with the Greenriders...Rob and his partner Cheryl coordinated and rode the 3700 mile trek that combined eco activism with a journey of self discovery. Live Like Ally helped Lexi make the trip a reality and it had a profound effect on her...Lexi and her partner (who she met on the ride!) ended up helping Rob get the Free Seed Project and other Live Like Ally/Rob Greenfield partnership projects going!

Rob Greenfield Tiny Home Project Day 3. The siding is almost complete and the bamboo floor was installed. Rob was able to get most of his things moved into the house. The flooring and fence panel siding are repurposed materials. It's great to see unwanted materials being used to make a low cost living space. Very inspiring! #tinyhouse #tinyhome #robgreenfield #tinyhouseliving #tinyhousemovement

In a previous episode we talked about food waste problem in the context of American homes. But grocery stores are wasteful too. . Many are scared that donating the food will get them in trouble if someone gets sick- but they are protected under the Good Samaritan Food Act. . One of @robjgreenfield 's big drivers is this food waste. Here he is sitting by a huge pile of fresh, edible food he rescued from a dumpster. . This year he will be growing, foraging and making his own food, proving we don't have to rely on the current broken system we have. . And Rob always tries to spread the love! With programs like gardens for single mothers and seed exchanges he want's to make everything as accessible as possible.

When our friend @robjgreenfield puts his mind to something, he gets it done! Rob has started a project where he forages for food, and these are the results after 8 hours of foraging. He did this by looking for fruit trees where there are fruits laying on the ground—he asked owners if he could harvest the fruit, and many of them encouraged him to do so because the trees produced more than their needs and would go to waste. We can all play a role when it comes to creating a better food system!

#Repost @robjgreenfield ・・・ I am auctioning my bamboo bicycle and 100% of the proceeds will be used to buy bikes for children in Orlando who live in low income scenarios! This is the bike that I cycled across the USA in 2014 on the Goodfluence Tour, doing good deeds across the USA. This is also the bike that was stolen in 2017, that I tracked down, hugged the person who stole it and used the opportunity to start a fundraiser to give bikes to kids in San Diego. The fundraiser raised enough funds to give away 50 bikes! So, this bike has a lot of very good energy and vibes in it. I’ve ridden about 5,000 miles on it and it’s served me well. Now it’s time for its service to continue by turning it into more bikes for kids, and to continue its life with someone else. The frame is a Calfee and is $1,000 purchased new. With the components being new it’s a $3,000 bike. That said it has gone through a lot and the frame has had some small cracks, but it is still a solid bike. I would recommend it as a great around town bike, but I don’t think it has another cross country ride in it. If you are interested in details you can email info @robgreenfield.tv. Place your bid by commenting here or email. The bid starts at $300. Bid includes shipping and I will have the bike tuned up and ready to ride before sending! I’ll send a signed copy of my book as well. Auction ends 08/17. I hope this will raise a lot of funds to buy bikes for kids. If you’d like to make a donation to purchase bikes for kids and not place a bid you can also do at www.robgreenfield.tv/hhf Health and happiness to you all! Current bid $500 by Yohann Berger (updated as of 10:29 AM EST 08/08) Photo by @danielle_werner

"Whenever something is easy, the burden is shifted elsewhere" . This is what @robjgreenfield realized years ago. He stepped out of his comfort zone countless times since then showing it's not only possible to live with a tiny footprint, but inexpensive. . This photo is from Rob's #trashme campaign in New York a few years ago. He consumed like an average American for 30 days- and wore every piece of trash he created. . This is day 30. The suit is 84 pounds. And Rob does all of this with a huge smile making him approachable to every curious person walking by. . Rob always takes this inviting approach to communication. He does crazy and interesting things and people are naturally drawn to it. .

How we threw a 300 person event and only generated 1/4 bag of compostable waste and took on one plastic cup, and two recyclable cans... Yesterday, we drank, ate and mingled with friends at our Market in Garden City. We offered steel cups, glass mason jars, cloth towels and finger foods and paper plates only. I'm amazed at how much trash and single use plastic we eliminated from the landfill for such a large outdoor event. It's possible to have a good time And save the planet!! Good work party people! #zerowasteliving #liveworkcreategc #Planetorplastic #robgreenfield #whatsupgardencity

My nonprofit Orlando Permaculture recently helped a community member clear out a section of his food forest for growing new plants. It gave us an opportunity to show members how to prepare a space for growing. We chopped down vegetation with machetes and covered it with cardboard and wood chips to suppress weeds. @robjgreenfield looked fully immersed in the experience (and the mud)!! 😁 Popular recording artist @aisha.badru also stopped by to help out. When she's not swinging my machete through heavy vegetation, she is singing some of the most beautiful songs like "Bridges", "Mind on Fire", and "Waiting Around", which you may have heard on popular TV shows and commercials. She sees all the destruction going on in the world and wants to use her voice to bring awareness to solutions and help give back. ❤ Check her out on You Tube, Spotify, Apple Music, Google Play! #permablitz #actionday #permaculture #foodforest #robgreenfield #aishabadru

Our partnership with Rob Greenfield is bearing fruit...and a whole lot of other organic food for people like Jane H. Jane is one of 2,000 who received a bundle of seeds through the Free Seed Project. Her foray into gardening began as a way to improve her nutrition on a limited budget, with the added bonus that her home grown bounty 'tastes much much better than anything you can get in the grocery store.' Every year her harvest gets a little better. Jane says 'that's how gardening is, the more you do the better you get!' #permaculture #robgreenfield #livelikeally #organicgardening #freeseedproject #yarden #yardening

#Repost @robjgreenfield with @get_repost ・・・ I LOVE Rob Greenfield, and this project was one that really made an impact on me. Rob lived like the average American for 30 days and kept every piece of trash he produced, wearing it on his body to create a visual impact. I have shown it to more than 100 school children too and they are always enthralled and take a lot from it!

Today we planted Nine Community Fruit Trees at @audubonparkchurch with @robjgreenfield as part of his Community Fruit Tree project. "Mulberry, loquat, Suriname cherry, avocado, peach and pomegranate will soon be fruiting and feeding the community. All the trees are right along the sidewalk where any person strolling down the street can enjoy a snack, provided directly by Mother Nature herself. These 9 fruit trees surround the outside of the church and will be free for all members of the church and everyone in the community to pick from. Fleet Farming has a garden plot on site where they produce fresh, organic veggies that feed the Orlando community. Orlando Permaculture is going to be installing edible landscaping this year. The transformation is fully underway!"- Rob Greenfield #permaculture #growfoodnotlawns #communityfruittrees #robgreenfield #fruittrees

Thanks to eco-activist @robjgreenfield for the shout out to me and my nonprofit @orlandopermaculture at Saturday's March Against Monsanto in Orlando. I get to work with a passionate crew @athousandsplendidplants , @amybirdd @peanut.butter.palace who make it an awesome experience. For those who don't know Rob, he has traveled around the world raising awareness to important issues like food waste and the minimalist lifestyle. His website www.robgreenfield.tv is worth the visit! He recently moved to Orlando because of the wonderful things we've been doing here with the local food movement. He's only been here a short time and he's already making a great impact on the community with Gardens for Single Moms, Free Seed Project, and a Community Fruit Tree initiative for the City of Orlando. Follow @orlandopermaculture , @robjgreenfield , and @fleetfarming to learn more about how you can get involved in creating a healthier Orlando! #marchagainstmonsanto #fleetfarming #ideasforus #orlandopermaculture #robgreenfield

Waste Me Not is challenge inspired by @RobGreenfield ’s 30-day Trash Me challenge that he completed in New York City. Throughout the 30 days, he lived like the average American and created an average of 4.5 pounds (2kg) of waste daily but instead of throwing it in a bin he wore it. Most people do not think twice about the trash they generate – out of sight, out of mind. Rob wanted to create a visual that would help people understand how much trash they leave in their wake and hopefully inspire them to make positive changes. Throughout his challenge, Rob was only able to carry 90 pounds (40.8kg) of waste. Waste Me Not had the same principles as Rob’s challenge, except we were two people carrying their trash, @DesignbyMariska and @Marita_Peters. Mariska lived like the average person creating an average of 2-3 kg of trash daily and wearing it. Marita depicted a conscious individual, trying to refuse, reduce and reuse as much as possible. During the 30-days was a very visual effect of how much less waste is created when people take little steps. After the 30 days Mariska's waste weighing in at almost 65kg, compared to Marita's 4.5kg. It was such an enriching experience where we were able to share this with the community and for us to end our challenge with a wonderful call with the man that started this challenge and supported us along the way was indeed a humbling experience. Thanks to everyone's (especially @fairy.Phi , and @Brianafortheplanet ) support during this challenge it meant the world to us. Check out the full interview on our Facebook page.

I had a chance to listen to @robjgreenfield speak today @motherearthfair. If you are not familiar with who he is, scroll through ➡️➡️➡️. Thank you for sharing your story. . Rob cycled across America off grid to raise environmental awareness. His book “Dude Making A Difference” documents this journey. It’s eye opening what’s possible. . For a period of 30 days, Rob consumed like a typical American producing around 4 pounds of trash everyday. He wore all of the trash he produced around NYC to visualize our wasteful habits. I was hoping to run into him on the subway when he was doing this. . Rob showed how much good food is wasted by dumpster diving and displaying his finds. . His advice when it comes to making change is to just start. Start small. Check off one positive change a week. Sustainability is a spectrum. We are all hypocrites one way or another as not one of us is perfect but try to do something today. What we will realize when we do this is that we were delusional about lots of things. It’s time to open our eyes and that that in the end, we don’t really need that much to be happy. As long as our basic needs are met we will be ok and we need to stop listening to the media because there are so many people out there that open and willing to help you. #ecowarrior #robgreenfield #activist #lowimpactmovement

This is my pledge for a strawless ocean. After wearing the waste of an average person for 30 days, I was shocked at how easy it was to generate the waste and how much of the waste could have easily been avoided. In 30 days I collect 46 straws as well as 65kg of waste. Every single straw could have been avoided by using a reusable straw or just by drinking directly from the glass. Thanks to the wonderful team @lonelywhale and @adriangrenier for the #stopsucking initiative. This is only a drop in the ocean but if we all work together we can create a massive ripple of change. I challenge all of you next time you order a drink think of how many straws will you contribute to the ocean or landfills. #stopsucking #designbymariska #wastemenot #robgreenfield #LonelyWhale #saveourocean #strwlessocean #plasticisnotfood #designbymariska #dbm #mariskanell #recycledart @brianafortheplanet @marita_peters @surgeforwater

SUSTAINABLE FINDS: Dumpster diving, I finally did it. Rob Greenfield would be so proud! The food waste crisis in America is real. Big corporations are tossing out perfectly good groceries that could be donated and consumed by people that don’t have a secure source of food. I was nervous so I only grabbed a few things from behind my local ALDI but once I get a few friends together it is over for you hoes.

Day 26 of the challenge. The day kicked off in the The Sustainable City where the #crazybirds had some fun displaying the suits. This was followed by a wonderful opening at World Art Dubai and a few interviews with the press, a talk on Waste Shoudnt be wasted as well as meeting interesting people. One of those people was @SalLavallo As someone that really love travelling and want to visit all the countries in the world, it was such a great honour to meet someone that has ticked off every single country in the world. I could have easily listed to his stories the entire day. I am so honoured to say that one of my first prints of "It's All About the Journey" will be added to the @SalLavallo art collected. I can not think of a better person to represent a traveller on a journey than someone that has visited every country in the world and some even more than once. #WasteMeNot #SaveThePlanet #Wastenotwantnot #Sustainability #onebottleatatime #climatechange #TrashMe #RobGreenfield #WasteShouldNotbeWasted #EarthHourtoEarthDay #30DayChallenge #MamaEarth #Environment #WasteMeNotUAE #UAEwaste #environmentallyfriendly #planetfriendly #wastefree #growyourown #savewater #LonelyWhale #TrashLadies

Day 12 completed. Still feels a bit strange to carry all this waste with me, but it is spreading an inspirational message and I am so thankful for every single person that has been motivating, thanking and just all the people who have been hanging out with me while dressed in the trash. Today I had such a funny experience at the physio. Their lift is very tiny and to fit my @gowagonuae and my suit in the lift was no easy task. Thanks to the wonderful team at @orthosportsdubai for making sure I fit and for taking such great care of me and my shoulders. #wastemenot #SaveThePlanet #Wastenotwantnot #Sustainability #onebottleatatime #climatechange #TrashMe #RobGreenfield #WasteShouldNotbeWasted #EarthHourtoEarthDay #30DayChallenge #MamaEarth #Environment #WasteMeNotUAE #UAEwaste #environmentallyfriendly #planetfriendly #wastefree #growyourown #savewater #LonelyWhale #TrashLadies #recyclewoman #DubaiTrashWomen #Wasteful #positivechanges #The5Rs #AverageWasteperperson #Trashsuit #SuitofTrash

Wow, week 1 done and dusted. I am still amazed at the amount of waste that is being added daily to my suit and thanks to my shoulder the @gowagonuae Today was really so much fun, being part of the @a_beach_cleanup_dubai I was boiling in the suit as it was a fairly hot morning. Non the less I was able to pick up so many cigarette butts that would have otherwise ended up in our beautiful oceans. Looking forward to the next beach cleanup, hope to see you all there. #wastemenot #SaveThePlanet #Wastenotwantnot #Sustainability #onebottleatatime #climatechange #TrashMe #RobGreenfield #WasteShouldNotbeWasted #EarthHourtoEarthDay #30DayChallenge #MamaEarth #Environment #WasteMeNotUAE #UAEwaste #environmentallyfriendly #planetfriendly #wastefree #growyourown #savewater #LonelyWhale #TrashLadies #recyclewoman #DubaiTrashWomen #Wasteful #positivechanges #The5Rs #AverageWasteperperson #Trashsuit #SuitofTrash

Day 6 of the #wastemenot challenge completed and with the amount of waste that I generated in the past few days it was time to start using the @gowagonuae to give my shoulders a little bit of a rest today. Today I spend most of my day in at home, seeing how much waste I can generate by ordering food and groceries for home delivery and I was amazed at all the packaging that was used. How much weight do do you think I am currently carrying with me? If you do see me out and about in the UAE, please do say hi. #SaveThePlanet #Wastenotwantnot #Sustainability #onebottleatatime #climatechange #TrashMe #RobGreenfield #WasteShouldNotbeWasted #EarthHourtoEarthDay #30DayChallenge #MamaEarth #Environment #WasteMeNotUAE #UAEwaste #environmentallyfriendly #planetfriendly #wastefree #growyourown #savewater #LonelyWhale #TrashLadies #recyclewoman #DubaiTrashWomen #Wasteful #positivechanges #The5Rs #AverageWasteperperson #Trashsuit #SuitofTrash @marita_peters

Saving the planet one glass jar at a time!! We went to @bulkbarnfoods today with loads of our mason jars ready to fill them up to the brim with our usual foods. We got gluten free pasta, protein powders, cocoa powder, nuts, gluten free flour, sea salt, flaxseed, loose tea, spices, and treats. We saved so much on single use plastics and also in our wallets! And our hormones are super happy without the plastics either. It's so easy to limit your plastic consumption by making small daily shifts. Happy wallet, happy hormones, and happy planet. 🌏🌳✌🏽Thanks to a great man (my love) for continuing to be such an inspiration to me and everyone else. You're amazing. I, and Mother Earth, love you heaps 😘! (👈🏼 who can guess what I did there 😂🙈).

We love a success story! It's so great to see that zero wasters are making a real difference. It's disheartening sometimes...those moments when your drink arrives with a straw in it, deapite your polite request of 'no straw please' 😩 But changes are happening all around us, and the more persistent we are, the bigger and better the changes will be. Well done @citytoseabristol and @robjgreenfield 👏👏 an inspiration to us all 👍🐠🌳🌍 . . . #zerowaste #citytosea #robgreenfield #plasticisrubbish #plasticpollution #leeds #westyorkshire #eco #savetheoceans #plasticfree #noplastic #alternatives

@robjgreenfield ’s next big project to watch! “For one year I will grow, forage, and hunt 100% of my food, while living in the urban city of Orlando, Florida. Every single morsel of food, down to the salt, oils and herbs will come from the land and I will harvest it myself. No food from grocery stores (including the dumpsters), restaurants, or even a a sip of tea at a party. I’ve never met a human who is doing this. They are out there, but because of the far reaches of our globalized food system, they aren’t common. I won’t have land of my own, which will mean farming unused front yards, guerrilla planting in abandoned lots, foraging for wild plants, and fishing. I will be learning an incredible amount about growing food, wild foraging, food preservation, renewable energy for cooking, utilization of waste and more, and I’ll share much of it with you on here. This mission really isn’t about my quest to produce 100% of my food. Those who know me, know that I embark on extreme tasks to bring attention to important issues and affect change. Our globalized food system is in crisis and is destroying life on Earth. Common sense says this can’t go on forever. Through my journey, I will share how people and communities across the nation are taking back power from Big Ag and gaining food freedom by growing their own food. My hopes are to inspire people to turn their lawns into gardens, to grow in containers on their balconies, to start community gardens, to source food locally, and to share food with their neighbors. We can’t all do 100%, but we can all do a little. My mission is to produce far more food than I can eat and to share with others in my community and enable hundreds of people to grow their own food. There is already a grow your own revolution spreading across the nation and I intend to contribute to that movement. Today begins my six months of preparation. The year will officially start around the beginning of summer. I may be vastly underestimating my addiction to dark chocolate bars. I’m up for the challenge though and I’m excited to have you all along for the ride with me!” Read about the project here: www.robgreenfield.tv/fo

Check out the latest blog from our friend Rob Greenfield on why he decided to make Orlando home for the next few years. Link in our profile. Rob Greenfield is an American adventurer and environmental activist who has made it his life’s purpose to inspire a healthy Earth, often with attention-grabbing tactics like wearing every piece of trash he created over a month. He attributes part of his decision to move here because of the great community we've created here with groups like Fleet Farming, IDEAS for Us, and Orlando Permaculture!! 😀 🌴🌻 Thanks for the mention Rob. It's great to have you back! #robgreenfield #environment #permaculture #ecowarrior #dudemakingadifference #dumpsterdiving #environmentalist #bamboobike #orlandopermaculture #ideasforus #fleetfarming

Plastic Free Travel – The result after 4 months Home! The 1th of August I started my plastic challenge, which was inspired by the plastic free July campaign and Rob Greenfield. For 4 months I have collected the plastic trash that I have bought and used during my travels and it weighs a total of 202 grams. Top 3 items in my plastic peanutbutter jars: straws, plastic bags and aluminium foil of chocolate bars. The first month was the hardest: I had to establish new habits and find a travel routine without feeling restricted. Because I wanted to travel plastic free, overland and continue my vegan lifestyle, the combination felt a bit claustrophobic in the beginning. Mostly, because I wasn’t sure what to expect and find in the destinations I would go to. However, my motivation was especially high during that first month, so I did it anyway. Fortunately, already during the first 2 weeks I discovered that in almost all the places that I visit, there are way more options to live plastic free than in the Netherlands and that feeling of being restricted fell away. I established a routine and used websites and apps that made my trip so much easier to organise. I will write about these websites and apps in another post. Now that I am home, I will continue making small steps towards a plastic free life. I know that for many plastic products there are alternatives, for example, this week I have started making my own oatmilk instead of using packaged soymilk. These alternatives have proven to be super easy and fun to make and in most cases also cheaper. #trashme #plasticfreejuly #robgreenfield #plasticdiet #plasticfree #overlandtravel #vegan #caucasus #trains #4months #14661km

Yesterday, I had the pleasure to spend the evening with the American adventurer, environmental activist, @robjgreenfield . Such an inspiration, I learnt so so much and I’m so grateful for that. He is an example of serenity, kindness, positivism, activism and determination. He is part of this new generation of environmentalists that inspires me everyday of my life. I got home even more determined to become an environmental activist and do what I can to drive a positive change around me. He said so many important and inspiring things but there is one that we all need to remember myself included. There is no perfection, there is no black and white, the grey part does exist, you need to find the right balance. And remember bad deeds cannot drive out bad deeds, only good deeds can do that! 🙂 Thank you Rob and I hope to see you very soon! 🌎

Two days ago, I attended a lecture given by @robjgreenfield in Paris. He is one of the people who inspires me the most and what I like about him is that his actions are in perfect alignment and harmony with his values. He went back on his story, telling us how he went from a life that was based on partys and overconsumption to the environmental activist he is now. He raises awareness about the environment through several projects. For example, he crossed the United States by having a minimum of impact, he crossed South America without money, he carryied for a month all the waste generated by an average American, he has lived in a tiny house and currently owns only 111 items, etc… He does everything in an extreme way but he says it himself, the purpose is not to be as extreme as he is, but to show that it is possible to do otherwise 😉 So if you need a little inspiration and you do not already know him, go see his TedEx and visit his website www.robgreenfield.tv there are plenty of articles on how to do live more sustainable! • Il y a deux jours, j’ai assisté à une conférence donnée par @robjgreenfield à Paris. C’est une des personnes qui m’inspire le plus et ce que j’aime chez lui c’est ses actions sont en parfait alignement et en parfaite cohérence avec ses convictions et ses valeurs. Il est revenu sur son histoire et comment il est passé d’une vie qui reposait sur la fête et la surconsommation à une vie d’activiste environnemental. Il est connu pour faire des projets poussés à l’extrême, dans le but de sensibiliser à l’environnement. Il a par exemple traversé les Etats Unis en ayant un impact minimal, il a traversé l’Amérique du Sud sans argent, il a porté pendant un mois sur lui l’intégralité des déchets que génère un américain moyen, il a fait le tour des villes en Amérique et fait de grands étalages avec de la nourriture totalement comestible trouvées dans les poubelles, il a vécu dans une tiny house et ne possède actuellement que 111 objets. Il fait tout de manière extrême et il le dit lui même, le but n’est pas de faire aussi extrême que lui, mais il le fait pour montrer que c’est possible de faire autrement 😉 Allez voir son site :) www.robgreenfield.tv
