One Planet Living® at Grow Community
If everyone in the world lives like an average European, we will need 3 planets to live on.
If everyone in the world lives like an average North American, we will need 5 planets to live on
What if we didn’t have unlimited clean water and air, and only a finite area in which to have built places and play places, farming places and wild places?
What if there were just ONE planet?
What is One Planet Living?
The One Planet Living® program envisions a world in which it is easy, attractive, and affordable for all of us to lead happy, healthy lives with fewer of the earth’s resources.
One Planet Living® uses ten guiding principles as a framework for building healthy, vital communities. The program was developed by Bioregional, an international, non-profit environmental organization. Grow Community’s first neighborhood The Village was one of nine endorsed One Planet Communities® in the world, and the second in North America.
As a member of Grow Community, you don’t have to make big sacrifices, learn a bunch of new stuff, or completely turn your life around to live here. We did that for you.
