Eco-Guide App Makes Getting Back to Nature a Breeze

By Tafline Laylin, Green Prophet December 21, 2011 Comments

Anyone who is interested to transition to a more sustainable way of life will benefit from Kibbutz Lotan’s comprehensive eco-guide app.

Many socially and environmentally conscious citizens dream about leaving the grid for good and getting back in touch with nature, but the general lack of sustainable infrastructure and available information in the Middle East – especially compared to the United States and Europe – makes that task seem completely insurmountable.

In response to this problem, Kibbutz Lotan’s Center for Creative Ecology in Israel, which is recognized as one of the world’s most advanced pioneers in all aspects of sustainable living, recently launched a fantastic eco-guide that covers everything from composting to earth architecture and how to get along in an ecologically-minded community.

Best of all, the techniques described in the application have all been put into practice in the Middle East, so instead of being an imported solution that has no relevance to our climate or circumstances, this is an exceptional homegrown resource created by and for ecologically-minded people in the Middle East – like our very own Green Sheikh. And did we mention that it’s free?

Some of the topics covered in this guide include:

  • Permaculture
  • Organic Gardening
  • Earth Building
  • Minimum to Zero Impact Cooking
  • Water Conservation
  • Compost Toilets
  • Passive Design Techniques
  • Community and Ecology
