Global Steem Village News #18

in #ecotrainlast month


Consolidating our energy towards a global network of steem-based eco-communities is a clear priority for @ecotrain. We deliberately and consciously curate those posts which speak to the issues, challenges and needs of the emerging steem eco-communities around the world.

GREAT content this week - here are some of the gems, eco-green wisdom & insight shared under the #ecotrain tag this week on the steem blockchain. Even if you don't have VP or RC to upvote, a meaningful comment is usually upvoted by a smart author, so please go and lavish your appreciation and engagement on this great content.

We truly are an amazing global community - and growing with new contributors every week!! If you want to help @ecotrain give juicier upvotes, please delegate or increase your delegation if you can. It matters! You loaning us your steem to make more money for you? Bit of a no-brainer, really!

@ecotrain is a artisan-hand-curated community built around the concept of gift economy and actively making our world a better place. We engage around sustainability, eco-green, permaculture, the glories of Mother Earth, inner transformation, alternative energy, earthships & earth building, recycling - in short, all the practical and conceptual underpinnings of paradigm shift.

Each week @eco-alex and @artemislives scour the steemit blockchain for
people using the tag, and upvote-comment-curate in the best way they
know how.

Disrupting the cost of living - E#2 - The Discomfort-Zone


Constraining or removing so-called "fixed costs of living" creates a
level of freedom that has to be seen to be believed. @orlev invites us
to reconsider which costs we are beholden to, and to re-imagine new ways
of living together in eco-village which remove those constraints.
