Trophic Hunting and Gathering

A Model of Sustainable-Use

The Global Supply Matrix



 

Whenever someone flips a light switch, or buys a soccer-ball , a house-mop, a new app for their computer or a cup of coffee with a simple swipe of their i-phone; or attends a concert or a lecture; or drops a quarter into a vending machine - a series of events is initiated which has a small and seemingly insignificant negative environmental impact. But for every item purchased and dollar spent, as long as enough people make those purchases and spend those dollars; biodiversity decreases, trees fall, animals die, and the earth drifts inexorably closer toward being a cold, sterile, lifeless planet. That's a fact, a law of nature, and the inevitable result of the current global demand and supply matrix, which is itself, of course, the result of our consumer lifestyle.
There's no going back, of course. But the long-term sustainability of that paradigm is in jeopardy - and it's not just a matter of economics ... or even ecology. It's a matter of personal choice. The things we choose to buy and the ways in which we spend our free time will decide what the future holds. It's entirely up to us. But first we must undersatand what we're doing, why we're doing it, and what we might do differently.
Trophic-Hunting and Gathering is a lifestyle choice, a way of living and a way of thinking that will not only make your life infinitely more rewarding, but reverse the path of unsustainability which threatens not only our consumer culture, but the earth itself - and everything that lives upon it. It is the most personally rewarding, economically-efficient and environmentally-sound manner in which to live. It's just that simple.
