Though this book was published in 1980, many of the observations and applications are still relevant. I have written a little series of posts to share what I learned from reading this treasure trove!
"Certainly your influence is small. But whether you conserve or waste, it is real. Many people using or not using things affects things in a big way. Gathering up the fragments of our waste--recycling, conserving, sharing--is a logical and authentic beginning. Such actions are the firstfruits of the harvest of justice. They are the promise of more to come."
The book suggests 5 standards for more with less living: do justice, learn from the world community, nurture people, cherish the natural order, and nonconform freely. Further explanation of these standards can be found on this informative site.
