\"A new paradigm for eco-living is possible and needed. Global establishment is possible if we can make it easy enough, affordable enough, and desirable enough to spread on its own.

This is the October 6th, 2019 edition (#341) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments.\"

Great suggestions: 1. Boycott all fast food places that sell industrial chemical-based food, including Impossible Burger and Beyond Meat that use GMOs, chemicals, and monocultures. 2. Drink coffee only if it\'s in a washable and reusable container. 3. Refuse to take the children to any athletic event more than 1 hour away. 4. Plant a garden in a backyard. Borrow one if necessary. 5. Don\'t eat any prepackaged, processed food; eat only whole foods that you prepare yourself in your own kitchen; eat left-overs for lunch; take it with you to work. \"Bring lunch to work day.\" 6. For one year, cancel all vacations that require air travel and instead visit 5 local points of interest (museums, farms, nature spots, etc.). 7.

\"If you love your job, the video attached to this update is not for you. For everyone else, let\'s talk about radical sustainability to address jobs nobody likes. Sustainability lowers overhead, increases self-sufficiency, and can provide the foundation for people to work from home or not work a traditional job at all. One Community wants to make this an option for anyone who wants it and we\'re open sourcing and free-sharing sustainable designs for food, energy, housing, education, for-profit and non-profit economic design, social architecture, fulfilled living, global stewardship practices, and more in support of this. This is the September 29th, 2019 edition (#340) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments.\"

\"Let’s build sustainable and self-sufficient teacher/demonstration hubs as a path to having more fun. Within these environments people can have more social and recreational things to do, all within walking distance, and work less and have more time to do these things. One Community is creating the open source plans for this social architecture and fulfilled living model as well as the food, energy, housing, education, and economic structures that will make it possible. This is the September 22nd, 2019 edition (#339) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments.\"

\"Let’s build sustainable communities as a solution to unemployment. Automation, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars are replacing manufacturing jobs, customer service jobs, and transportation jobs. One Community is open sourcing the foundations for teacher/demonstration hubs that will provide sustainable alternatives for the people no longer needed in these jobs. These alternatives will be more rewarding, more fun, and require less time and energy so people can work less and spend more time doing other things instead. This is the September 15th, 2019 edition (#338) of our weekly progress update detailing our team’s development and accomplishments.\"
