Sustainable Materialism

Environmentalism of Everyday Life

Growing action.

We are seeing a shift in the nature and form of environmental activism. A whole range of environmental groups have emerged with a focus not on environmental policy at the state or national level, but instead on the development of new and more sustainable practices relating to food, energy, transport, and a range of other basic needs. Environmentalists are no longer just greenies in the forest or parliament. ‘The Environmentalism of Everyday Life’ project examines a variety of these new movements and activists across the US, UK and Australia, from those working in community supported agriculture and alternative energy, to sustainable fashion advocates and the founders of repair cafes.
