As Macintosh explained to me in such episodes, three arrow figures: one point down, one point beside, and one point up. These arrows are essentially the environmental health of the planet.
The arrow pointing down represents what some modern day companies do and have been doing for years. “These are companies that go to places, harvest whatever the mines or resources are, leave pollutants, cut down trees, erode the soil and then leave after acquiring what they can,” he explains. “In most modern capitalism and recent human history we’ve been really skilled at doing this: taking something from the earth, turning it into something to use, and then throwing it away as waste.”
And then we can get sustainable arrangements — or horizontally directed arrows. “It simply came to our notice then. And if your land is in a good place – healthy, and productive – then it works, “he says.” But if you start in a bad place – the land is ruined – it won’t work. ”
Basically when we talk about “sustainability” most of us mean the best, we are at a stage where we have to do more. This is where regenerative exercises come into play. “It’s the final arrow, which we’re going up,” he says. “And it’s in this case, a symbol of the health of a place or a community – it’s the work of bringing life back to that place.”
Want to know how we can do it? Well, you have to tune in to find out. Watch the episode below for more Intel.
