Ecology & Design
Holstee- Lifestyle design with conscience. Ecology is all-encompassing. It’s more than recycled vs. organic or biodegradable vs. everlasting. It helps bring to light everything and everyone impacted by the creation of anything. From day one, we’ve had the opportunity to align ourselves with organizations who employ fair working conditions, use sustainable materials and processes, and implement distribution chains that minimize environmental impact.
The Revolution In American Agriculture (1970)
A painting titled “Farm of the Future” by David Meltzer, which was commissioned by the National Geographic Society, and created under the influence of the U.S.D.A. The painting shows a futuristic farm that consists of crop dusters, cow condos, and a centralized glass domed control center. A generic pristine city can be seen in the distance, nestled between majestic mountains and the futuristic farm. It seems as if the Jetsons could descend any moment by aerocar. The painting illustrates a common view of the future, in which technology frees society from current or anticipated problems and demands. It is a utopian view of both the rural industrial farm, and the clean industrial city. The two exist seemingly in harmony, though in complete isolation from one another. --Shana Berger
1 Tree per 61.4 People
If there are 5 million tress in the US, and our population is 307, 006, 550 million then there is one tree per every 61.4 of us!
Josef Kellndorfer and Wayne Walker of NASA’s Woods Hole Research Center worked in conjunction with the National Geological Survey and US Forest Service to catalog a mix of data gleaned from space-based radar, satellite sensors, computer models, and old-fashioned tree counting. The map above shows the total amount of woody biomass in the USA. It’s displayed at a 30 meter resolution, where every four pixels constitutes an acre and every ten represents a hectare. In total, Kellendorfer estimates some five million trees reside on US soil (via Gizmodo via Where the Trees Are : Image of the Day).
