CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $19.95. AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

It's time we moved from commuting to community and Superbia!, a Mother Earth News Book for Wiser Living, tells you how. An inspiring book about connecting with our neighbors, connecting our communities to the ecosystem, and connecting our everyday lives to our search for quality and joy.

The book is full of practical ideas for creating more socially, economically and environmentally sustainable neighborhoods. It is about remaking suburban and urban neighborhoods to serve people better and to reduce human impact on the environment.

The authors first trace the history of the suburbs, showing how they fail to meet many peoples' needs. They then describe how existing neighborhoods can be transformed, offering cohousing and new urbanist communities as examples. The reader is then guided through the transformation of a fictitious neighborhood that adopts the authors' 31 steps. Ideas for the blossoming of the suburb are described in order of difficulty, from easy to boldest, including: the creation of a neighborhood newsletter to foster a sense of neighborhood identity and cooperation; regular community dinners, discussion groups and babysitting co-ops; the removal of backyard fences to create park-like spaces for community play areas or gardens; retrofitting homes for energy efficiency, and installing community energy systems.

Examples from all over North America and beyond provide real-life proof that citizen planners can create superbia! And the most comprehensive resource listing imaginable puts all the tools needed at your fingertips.

Well-illustrated and reader-friendly, Superbia! is written primarily for the millions who live in urban areas or existing suburbs. It will also be of major interest to environmentalists, planners, and all who want to create a more humane and nurturing lifestyle.

WILD RUBBER BACKPACK


Other/miscellaneous products

Price: $63.00

CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $99.99 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Made in Brazil with sustainable natural rainforest rubber, this unique backpack is an eco-friendly alternative to leather. Treetap® is a plant material with natural and seasonal variations that produce hues ranging from light brown to very dark brown. Organic cotton adjustable canvas straps can be quickly altered in length to fit your size perfectly, and the zippered closure up top makes access easy to the main compartment. Cool 1 inch round Utne zipper-pull shows that your choice of reading is as smart as your choice of backpack.

Our eco-friendly backpack is manufactured from Treetap®, a product that comes from rubber trees in the Amazon. Indigenous tree tappers "milk" these wild plants in the jungle for their sap. The sap from these Hevea brasiliensis is natural latex and after being sustain ably harvested (trees are rotated every two years) it is filtered and layered onto cotton backing. This is smoke cured, half a dozen times or so, and sun dried to vulcanize or "set" the latex.

By producing Treetap® using traditional, low-impact practices, the communities improve their quality of life without degrading their environment. Plant tappers earn fair-wages, and the forested regions in which the plants grow are undergoing Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certification. With the growth of cattle and livestock breeding – activities responsible for rampant forest clearing – and plantation-grown rubber, this represents both a sustainable and viable alternative economic model for hundreds of forest communities wanting to preserve their home and lifestyle.

Backpack features:

  • Zipper access to the main compartment
  • Zippered internal pocket
  • Organic cotton adjustable straps
  • 2 drink pockets
  • Zippered outer pocket
  • Utne zipper-pull
  • Size: 14 3/8” x 9 1/2” x 5 1/8”
