Book Description

3 Dec 2002
Can we find ways of living that are sustainable and deeply satisfying, that ensure economic and political democracy, and are passionate about beauty, elegant design, and the wildness of nature? The contributors to Sustainable Planet say we can, and offer 16 remarkable visions of how to get from here to there, including: * Specific proposals from citizen and labor coalitions that articulate a positive alternative to the free-trade model of globalization * The emergence of local food systems that allow us to eat fresher, better tasting food while protecting family farms and conserving the environment * New thinking about industrial design and engineering that is leading to production systems which generate no waste * How we might create a fashion industry that weds aesthetic pleasure with social justice * Five economic policy recommendations that could move us toward a sustainable economy * What you can do to create a real sense of community where you live * A road map for building the political will to change the system before it's too late. This anthology grew out of the work of the Center for a New American Dream (CNAD), a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping Americans change the way they consume to improve quality of life, protect the environment, and promote social justice. Juliet Schor is author of the best-selling The Overworked American and Do Americans Shop Too Much?, and serves on the board of CNAD. Betsy Taylor is founder and president of CNAD and author of the forthcoming What Kids Really Want That Money Can't Buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great breadth, authoritative, still relevant 18 May 2010
By Steve Aelfcyning - Published on
Verified Purchase
Some of the examples in the book are a little dated but its breadth and variety of authoritative voices make it still relevant. Juliet Schor's chapter on a new fashion ethic called my attention to something I would otherwise have overlooked and the chapters by Peter Forbes and Betsy Taylor are remarkable and inspiring. Bill McKibben's input is always appreciated.

5.0 out of 5 stars well done 30 Jan 2008
By Roger S. Gottlieb - Published on
Excellent and thought provoking. Very useful for courses at university level. Some cheerful, but not simplistic, ideas for change.

4.0 out of 5 stars Practical considerations 23 Aug 2007
By S. Morrell - Published on
The book is very helpful to read for those of us who wonder how to consider living out some of our concerns regarding the environment. I particularly appreciated Juliet Schor and Bill McKibbon is always worth reading.
A couple of the chapters on economics were beyond me - but glad someone is thinking about it!!
