While the ideal of conserving water and energy is noble, I’m left wondering if the paradigm of these operations; i.e., natural gas, petroleum, paper making, industrial-food and beverage, mining, is too “unsustainable” at large to be able to make a meaningful difference by “cleaning them up”. Something in me says that it’s better, if we can, to invest directly in activities that represent a healthy world already1
