Green Living NYC All things green in New York City

This is a bit of wisdom from Arun Gandhi, director of the M. K. Gandhi Institute for Non-violence in Memphis, a non-government institute that teaches the philosophy of non-violence. Here Arun tells of a formative lesson he learned while living in India with his grandfather, Mahatma Gandhi. Give it a read if you’d like. “We have to remember, when we talk about violence, it’s not just the physical violence that we see around us. There is much more to it than just physical violence. And grandfather made me aware of this one day when I was coming back from school and I had this little notebook, writing pad and a pencil. And I was about 13 years old at the time, quite an irresponsible 13 year old. Walking home absentmindedly I looked at the pencil. It was about 3 inches long, and I said I deserve a better pencil. This is too small for me to use. And I was so confident that grandfather would give me a new pencil that without a second thought, I threw that pencil away. And that evening when I went and asked grandfather for a new pencil, instead of giving me one he subjected me to a lot of questions. He wanted to know what happened to the pencil I had in the morning, how did it become small, where did I throw it away, and on and on and on. And I couldn’t understand why he was making such a fuss over a little pencil until he told me to go out and look for it. And I said, “You must be joking! You don’t expect me to go out and look for a pencil in the dark?” He said, “Oh yes I do, and here’s a flashlight.” And he sent me out with the flashlight to look for this pencil and I must have spent two or three hours searching for it. And when I finally found it and brought it to him he said, “Now I want you to sit here and learn two very important lessons… The first lesson is that even in the making of a simple thing like a pencil we use a lot of the world’s natural resources and when we throw them away we are throwing away the world’s natural resources and that is violence against nature. Lesson number two, is that because in an affluent country we can afford to buy all these things in bulk, we over consume the resources of the world. And because we over consume them, we are depriving people elsewhere of these resources and they have to live in poverty. And that is violence against humanity.” And that was the first time I realized all of these little things that we do every day. I mean just think about it, how many useful things we throw away every day because we have such a lot of it. How much food we throw away every day. How many good clothes we throw away because we have new ones. All of this, every time we throw away something and waste something is violence.”

On the first day of summer we bring you a home perfect for the season.
Easy walk to the Brooklyn Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park - comprised of 85 acres along 1.3 miles of waterfront. The coop has a shared roof deck with sweeping views of the harbor and downtown Brooklyn. Check out the video for this oversized beautifully renovated, 1 bedroom home with 5 closets and built-ins in #Brooklyn Heights on the market for $648,000!
DM @krisiskris to see this lovely home

Every Friday we will present a green home of the week.
A green home can be a home with private outdoor space, common outdoor space or within a ¼ mile of green space such as parks, community gardens, lakes, rivers or any body of water for that matter. Of course a green home can also be built to be sustainable and/or energy efficient. Some homes are even designed to meet the Passive House and/or the #LEED standard.

I got caught in the downpour during my #morningjog from #ParkSlope through #CarrollGardens through and #ProspectHeights. It was quite slippery but I completed 5 miles then later in the morning I took a 3 mile walk to my office in Union Square from Hell’s Kitchen. Swipe for pics including a 100 people doing #yoga poses in Times Square.

What #green dreams are made of...

This is one of the most advanced concept cars in the world! It's the Groupe Renault Trezor and is fully functional with a top speed of 170km/hour and 0-100km/hr in under 4 seconds! It took me two years to track down this car. Finally, I flew to Paris 🇫🇷 to film with it and drive it. I think the honeycomb air vent is exceptionally beautiful. What do you think??

Catchy heading:
"Rethink, Renew, Reuse"
_________________________
Years ago, the "waste hierarchy" guidance (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle) was introduced. Reusing is certainly viable. Everyone can do it. This conference focuses on "Reusing", not "Recycling". Use what you want first before buying more stuff!
