Eco Villages are a state of mind--they don't have to be remote and this model in Los Angeles is right in the city core--innovative and visionary approaches are being untilized to bring this dream into reality. Sustainable living is the goal.

Eco Villages address concerns about the environment and sustainable living-I do not advocate them as a utopian dream but as a practical and diligent approach to living in a responsible way--it can be approached in many imaginative ways and hopefully people will evolve enough to start embracing the concept on a mass scale--If we all do our part I believe there will be a tipping point and it will become a way of life......I am doing my part by putting this article out there as an option for people who are open to it and as an alternative--intentional communities--google Eco Villages for more info and lists of them around the world. Thanks

They are the same as small country towns? That's where I want to live. Ride on a horse to get food at the farmer's market. :o) We have towns like this in Ontario.

There are many small towns and communities around here and getting people to recycle is extremely frustrating. I've tried, to no avail, to have a recycle can placed by the trash can at mom-and-pop stores, mini-marts and gas stations. They don't want to be bothered. The garbage pick up trucks don't want recycled items separated from the garbage. If they can't make this first step you can imagine how difficult it is to move to the next. This is a perfect area to really go green but these folks just don't get it. It's sad. Thanks Beba

This article, along with the previous one about the same topic is an eye opener. I believe many place should seriously consider this kind of nature friendly living. Those who left critics to Beba saying that the idea is not applicable need to change their mind.

LA needs more areas that are walkable and encourages the use of mass transit.

A very good start. Sounds like they are at least trying and not ignoring.

All the states have to become Eco-Friendly before there is no ECO to be friendly to and that is a fact.
