"All things are connected, like the blood which unites one family. Whatever befalls the earth befalls the sons of the earth. Man did not weave the web of life, he is merely a strand in it. Whatever he does to the web, he does to himself.

Interesting sociological phenomenon: rites of passage to responsibility help create community to support both the privileges / responsibilities and the desired community. – mojojuju

Why the Dutch don't wear helmets. One of the perennial topics of controversy in the bicycling community is helmets, and the controversial issue is not about which color is prettiest.

Why the Dutch don't wear helmets

I won't spend too much time on the backstory, but the controversy is whether or not helmets should be a must (for their skull & brain protection benefits) or left at the shop (because they inhibit bicycling, which results in less bicycling, which makes bicycling less safe). "Must" could mean a legal requirement, or it could simply mean a personally imposed must – it depends on the conversation. I used to be the director of a nonprofit that was primarily focused on promoting and supporting bicycling in the greater Charlottesville area. I remember publishing the picture that I've used at the top of this article on the front of one of our newsletters and subsequently getting chewed out by some of our members.

Urban Ecology

Urban Ecology uses urban design, land use planning, and policy reform to help communities plan and build neighborhoods that are ecologically healthy, socially just, and economically fair. Our mission Founded in 1975, Urban Ecology strives to create neighborhoods that are thriving, healthy places to live. We specialize in participatory land use planning that creates a common vision for change and policy advocacy that turns a community’s vision into reality. While the San Francisco Bay Area has many nonprofits that advocate for neighborhood revitalization and regional sustainability, Urban Ecology is the only one that operates at both levels simultaneously.

The Rare Breeds Survival Trust (RBST) is a conservation charity,[1] whose purpose is to secure the continued existence and viability of the United Kingdom’s native farm animal genetic resources (FAnGR).

Rare Breeds Survival Trust

It was founded in 1973 to preserve native breeds, and since then no UK-native breed has become extinct. It maintains a watch list of the United Kingdom's rarest breeds of cattle, sheep, pigs, horses, goats and poultry,[2] and an approved list of farm parks.[3] Projects have included the collection of genetic material to ensure the future of rare breeds in a farm animal "gene bank". Resurrecting the Dodo and Other Extinct Creatures" Though some experts contend that it will never be possible, a great debate is underway in science about whether it's ethical to bring an extinct species back to life.

Some animals are driven to extinction by human action, but others simply can't survive in their natural habitat or because of a major change in climate. Environmental Working Group.

Environmental Working Group has provided research, statistical reports and presentations, reporting, and suggestions for personal activities advocating ethical and ecological life on Earth for decades. EWG.org offers news, articles, blogs, original research, data compilation (often in the form of consumer guides), apps, and petitions as well as other opportunities to further environmental causes (including of course many means to donate support) in these critical areas of concern: WATER, FOOD, AGRICULTURE, CONSUMER PRODUCTS (emphasizing body care and household use products), TOXIC CHEMICALS, ENERGY, POLICY, and LEGISLATION.
