The Art of living in our Environment - the natural man

Today, I just have to share this beautiful story.
A simple man and his family are living so directly with their resources.
With our modern life-style we have moved so far away from the essence, so far away from the simple things that sustain us. We have no idea where most of the food on our table comes from, or the furniture in our houses, or virtually anything we own. Imagine if we could trace each one of our possessions to where they originate? Who made them, harvested them, cut, sewed, sorted, picked, built them? What do their lives look like?
The coffee we drink each morning, the clothes we put on, the toothpaste, the cereal, the medications, the shoes? We have absolutely no connection with the source of anything we use anymore.

But maybe I am a little off the subject.......although it is all connected.

What I really want to share is this little story, or BIG story I should say.
A simple man, who did not need to go to university and earn a degree, attend conferences and summits, to know what the environment needs.

Watch for yourself and let me know what you think. To me, it is SUPER inspiring. It makes me happy and sad at the same time. Why can't we all be busy with nurturing rather than destroying?
We are mostly unaware of the destruction we are supporting by feeding our every day habits.
