Ethical living is the philosophy of making decisions for daily life which take into account ethics and moral values, particularly with regard to consumerism, sustainability, environmentalism, wildlife and animal welfare.

Sustainable living describes a lifestyle that attempts to reduce an individual's or society's use of the Earth's natural resources, and one's personal resources. It is often called as "earth harmony living" or "net zero living". Its practitioners often attempt to reduce their carbon footprint by altering their methods of transportation, energy consumption, and/or diet.

Are you ready to cultivate your own particular mastery at this watershed moment in human history? Are you ready to contribute to a more humane and habitable existence for all and lead from the ground up?

Some strategies are low technology and dependent on the choice of sturdy and adaptable crops, like planting mushroom beds; many others are still works in progress, like growing fish.

Technical nourishment are benign, non toxic synthetics which may be utilised in constant cycles without sacrificing their integrity while biological components are organic substances that decompose in the soil, providing enhancing nutrients.
