In order to live sustainably on the planet, we have to start by changing our attitude towards the environment.  Humans are not separate from nature; we are part and parcel of its evolving process.  In the ENVIRONMENT Bullfrog Community, we can teach each other how to kick the fossil-fuel habit, preserve the planet’s non-renewable resources for their highest and best uses, and encourage our children’s sense of wonder. We can live healthily, happily, and with greater concern for the other inhabitants of this planet and for our descendants.
