Green Living NYC

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.
(1)

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.”

We had some super delicious #glutenfree #vegan #doughnuts today at @lovebirdsdonuts in #Maine
Also had the 😋 cinnamon bun #latte and #hotchocolate

For #MeatlessMonday we paid a visit to newly opened Guevara’s on Grand in the Clinton Hill section of Brooklyn.
All the reviews are true! They are very friendly and they have an all plant based 🌿menu plus plants 🌱 for sale. We were most looking forward to trying the eggplant 🍆 torta but they won’t have a gluten free version until December and we can’t wait. From what everyone says it is a must have along with the bacon 🥓 egg 🍳 and 🧀 sandwich. You must check it out! You will not be disappointed.

As the pandemic lockdown cleared the roads and as governments instituted popular programs to keep restaurants and small businesses alive, communities have gotten a glimpse at what the city is like when the streets are reimagined. New Yorkers don’t want to look back.

#WholesomeWednesday
On Wednesdays we here at Green Living NYC like to have as few processed meals as possible. That usually means salads or a stir fry. For lunch 🥙 today we had a Tangerine Crunch chopped salad 🥗 from Wegman’s. We added chick peas, avocado 🥑 and green onion to give it some more fullness.
It’s all vegan and gluten-free!
Enjoy!

No matter what country you are in, #covid19 has surely put a damper on #2020 vacations. When travel opens up again, there are plenty #ecofriendly hotspots for you to enjoy such as these two located in #CostaRica.

Costa Rica is a pioneer when it comes to ecotourism: 25% of the country is protected by the National System of Conservation Area and the nation plans to be completely carbon-neutral by 2021. Most hotels in the region have impressive sustainability programs, but two rainforest retreats have raised the standard for eco-luxury. When it was built in 1993, Pacuare Lodge, located in a 25,000-acre swath of protected rainforest, saved the area from being demolished. Trees were preserved and the resort was built from teak wood brought in from reforestation projects. The lodge’s sustainability efforts have only increased since then: examples include a hydroelectric turbine and waste management system. Lapa Rios Lodge, which sits 350 feet above sea level, has a particularly impressive community program that provides resources and education on environmental conservation to schoolchildren. Aspiring nature guides can attend classes to learn about sustainability and the environment. [source: Indagare]

ELECTRIC TUESDAY!

“A Quiet Revolution”
Years ago, it would have been unthinkable to have an #EV #hummer, but all that changed today when @GMC opened the ordering for its new HUMMER EV and customers were quick to line up...virtually speaking. Touting it as the world’s first all #electric super truck, with 1000 horsepower, capability of blasting from zero to 60 mph in just 3.0 seconds and a whopping 11,500 lb-ft of torque, GM is hedging its bets that consumers will feel justified in paying the sticker price which starts at $70,000.

As excited as buyers are to get their orders in soon, delivery won’t take place until late 2021 - early 2022.

MEATLESS MONDAY!

For some of us, everyday is #Meatless, but for those of us who aren’t, Meatless Mondays are always an easy way to contribute in our collective efforts to make our world more #green. Because it’s always a good time for #tacos, check out this delicious platter by @edgarraw! Speaking of tacos, #newmom @jennadewan loves #vegan tacos, telling fans in a July 2019 YouTube Live session, she turns to the brand @beyondmeat Beef Crumbles. “If you want a taco night that’s vegan,” she said, “they’re so good.” And, in the ultimate endorsement, the star added, “All my meat-eater friends love it too!”

For this week’s installment of GREEN HOME OF THE WEEK we are bringing you an entire building.
ONE JOHN STREET is a 42 unit condo building located not just near a park but actually in a park! This 12 story building, placed centrally along the waterfront in Brooklyn’s upscale DUMBO neighborhood, is one of the crown jewels in Brooklyn Bridge Park. Aside from the high end amenities, residents also enjoy private and common landscaped rooftop spaces as well as deeded garden plots. If that wasn’t enough, ONE JOHN STREET is also a LEED gold certified building.
.

.

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.
