Solutions in Our Communities

Need some inspiration? Annie Leonard has a new article in her Solutions Series on the Patagonia weblog, The Cleanest Line. “Solutions in Our Communities” shows how getting involved at the community level is a fantastic start in making big changes in the world.

An excerpt:

“To make changes on the scale needed to address the severity of today’s environmental, economic and social crises, we have to change the rules of the game on three levels: in our governments, in our businesses and in our communities. Our communities are a good place to start: They’re close to home; the solutions are usually easier to achieve than trying to make change at the international, national or even state levels; and the emotional and social rewards are more immediate.”
