    i am a huge supporter of environmentalism but i am wondering if anarchy has any place for it and what would we do as a anarchy if we were to achieve :ecouteurs: it.

    I think the two are peas in a pod! I think the environment should be one of the first focuses of an anarchist society. If I were to be part of an anarchist society I would hope that it would be sustained by renewable energy and use all resources in the most environmentally concious way possible.

    Agreed. Thanks for bringing it up. I would imagine environmental consciousness would be one of the main focuses in an anarchist society and i would expect that the society would be sustainable in more areas then just energy. Public gardens would be a great start, as would a better system of recycling that includes more then just cans and newspapers. Really simple things that the main society doesn't do as a whole

    I totally agree with you on all those points. Also people tend to forget the first two "R's' of Reduce, Reuse and Recycle. Reuse and reduction of use need to come before recycling is even a thought...This is why I think projects like freecycle are so cool. We need things like that in an anarchist society. I always tell kids in my classes who throw away paper (that has most likely only been used on one side) in the trash can (when my school has a kickass recycling program as is! And recycling bins next to every trash can!), "You should be forced to eat that paper to get the full caloric value of what you just wasted back!" :D

    Agree. Heard of Transition Towns? It's starting to spread world wide, people growing what they can in the city, for themselves and others. Planting for example fruit trees in public places does good both for the environment and for the hungry.

    of course it has its place, there's even a green and black flag for anarcho-ecologist and there's a lot of theories about this movement
