Relocalization Is A Rising Wave of Smart Sustainability

Relocalization is about adjusting your system of living -- transportation, food, community...

As we contemplate how to achieve lower carbon emissions, CFL bulbs and recycling are great starts. But the real answers lie much deeper. Reducing our carbon footprint will mean – quite frankly – significantly reducing the amount of fossil fuels we burn.

“Relocalization is not an If but a When.” – Aaron Nuline

Think of your rounds for the week. Grocery shopping, errands, school and office, the usual grind… plot yours on a radial diagram. See a sample.

Relocalizing is making choices about your travel and your community-building options that impact not only your own fuel consumption, but the hidden transportation for that banana from South America, that dress from China, and that car from Korea.

ReLocalization tips and strategies are discussed at author, Joanne Poyourow's website Legacyla.net. Joanne has also written a fascinating book called "Legacy" that is a fictional story of sustainability. It's getting rave reviews...a page turner, a hopeful story...check out the support you can find locally to adjust to the coming age of more sustainable living.

Need a support group to make your life more sustainable? Here's a directory for the Los Angeles area: Legacyla.net

Additional resources about Relocationation include:

Post Carbon Institute hostsThe Relocalization Network to promote local communities and global connections.

Enforced Relocalization: in the Energy Bulletin.

THE THREE LAWS OF OUR ENERGY PEAK FUTURE: LOCAL, LOCAL, LOCAL

What is your relocalization story? Do you feel in your heart that local makes more sense? But don't know how to fight the system of globalization? Give it some thought -- everyone can affect their "living system" to make it more local and more rewarding. The personal benefit of having neighbors again is a great reward!
