. It is time that we adapt to the Earth, not the Earth adapts to us.
Leading a high-consumer lifestyle is not compatible with the LIFEHAUS project, seemingly since unconscious consumption and the destruction of the planet go hand in hand. Adjusting our way of life is key to creating a sustainable, eco-friendly culture –one that suits both the LIFEHAUS and the environment.
This includes changes to reduce water consumption and pollution by using dry toilets, showers instead of bathtubs, manually controlled water valves and all the recommendations mentioned previously.
Reducing power consumption by turning off all unused appliances and lights. Reducing time spent on TV and switching off appliances that aren’t being used. Following the sunlight reduces artificial light consumption etc.
Encouraging the development and use of eco-friendly products that include domestic detergents and personal hygiene items.
Developing craftsman skills in carpentry, metal-smithing, needlework, masonry, cooking, basic healing etc.
Creating a small self-sufficient community is advisable, so that each person with a set of skills can complement other members of the community.
The LIFEHAUS is a living social experiment where people learn to trust one another and stand in solidarity in order to build a community. It revives the context for people to connect and share culture, knowledge and ancestral technics for a unique experience, far from the corporate rat race.
They become a micro-society whose only aim is to build and live happily… That’s the real essence of life. It’s returning to the roots.
