All Eyes On Juliana: June 4th Livestream

Tune in to the livestream of the oral argument at:
June 4th, 2019

The constitutional youth climate lawsuit, Juliana v. United States, will be heard before the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in Portland, Oregon on Tuesday, June 4, 2019 at 2 pm Pacific time.

The oral arguments will be livestreamed by the Court, and the number of viewers is tracked. Youth v. Gov, Our Children’s Trust, and Earth Guardians want to make history by having this be the most watched Ninth Circuit argument ever.

The Juliana v. US lawsuit established that young people have a constitutional right to “a climate system capable of sustaining human life.” That right is being violated. On Tuesday, June 4th, tune in to the livestream of the plaintiffs’ hearing and post with #AllEyesOnJuliana 👀 so that the government can see how many are watching as it tries to deny the rights of young people in court.

We need the U.S. government to know that the American people are watching. We need #AllEyesOnJuliana👀

Holistic Sustainable Living Resources

May 23, 2019

For anyone who has read Recipe For A Green Life, you know that I greatly value due research and plenty of resources for: evidence, facts, and learning — as well as for networking, movements, charity, and activism.

In that same spirit, I have added a new page on this blog that provides key resources for these multiple purposes. The resources are shared without any kind of sponsorship, payment or hidden personal benefit to me. The only monetary interest I have on this blog is to sell Recipe For A Green Life (paperback and e-book formats). That aside, this blog is provided solely for the sake of providing educational support, insight, inspiration, facts, news, and guidance for all things related to holistic sustainable living.

Please check out the new Resources page, and feel free to bookmark it and share it.

If there is a page that you think belongs on the Resources page of this blog, or if you have comments or questions about what is included on the page — feel free to comment or send me a message. Keep in mind that the list will remain geared for high integrity and transparency. Exceptions to this would be unusual…and would need to be clearly helpful as a resource.

Recipe: Toothpowder

CS Sherin, May 9th, 2019; updated 05-22-19

There are some things that have remained a standard in my journey on the path towards a more sustainable lifestyle recipe-wise over the past decade or so: the toothpowder recipe, deodorant recipe, and green cleaning recipes. Today, I am sharing the toothpowder recipe, which is an adaptation from the one in Recipe For A Green Life.

Adapting recipes is a necessary part of an ongoing long-term holistic sustainable lifestyle. Needs change, body responses change, situations and abilities change. Therefore, there is a need for us to adapt and change what we are doing. That willingness to experiment and for flexibility in the practice ensures ongoing progress on the path.
