Ecocentricity Guest Blog - Environmental Justice and the Soul of America: A Conversation with Rev. Gerald Durley

Reprinted from Drawdown Georgia's Weekly Blog
Summary: 

“Dr. King told us that we had to look at the soul of America. And in my estimation, the soul of America is the environment, because if you destroy the soul, then nothing else exists. If you destroy the air, if you destroy the water, if you destroy the wildlife, if you destroy the plants - that's the soul of America.”   --The Reverend Dr. Gerald Durley

Ecocentricity Blog: I Called Bank

By: John A. Lanier
Summary: 

Where and how banks choose to loan their deposits determines what happens in this world of ours. Which houses get built, what colleges we go to, which jobs get created with a corporate relocation – all are enabled by the access to financing that banks offer. But banks don’t have to be a part of our environmental problems. If they choose, they can be part of our environmental solutions.

ECOncrete Turns Marine Infrastructures Into Thriving Natural Ecosystems

Reprinted from Intelligent Living by Andrea D. Steffen
Summary: 

ECOncrete succeeds in making coastlines less disruptive to marine ecosystems by replacing intrusive concrete structures (like seafloor mats and seawalls) with products that blend in with their surroundings. It accomplishes this through biomimicry – a technique that relies on the textures, shapes, and sizes of natural systems to dictate how a product is built. The result is a bio-enhancing material that helps marine life thrive.
