Green Triangle

Posted by 29 June, 2008

I read about the Green Triangle briefly in Getting a Life. It was an interesting concept that I hadn’t really thought about. The Green Triangle is the relationship between health, money, and environment. It draws a connection between them and, in Callenbach‘s words, “Any time you do something beneficial for one of them, you will inevitably also do something beneficial for the other two, whether you’re hoping to or not”.

My wife and I have been very interested in all three of these areas for a while, but we’ve only recently been taking action. My wife and I have been tracking our expenses and have been looking very carefully at how we spend our money. We’ve also been consistently running for the past few months. In addition to that, for the sake of saving money initially, we’ve been eating at home more often. The food we’ve been eating hasn’t been freshly prepared from scratch like we’d want it, but we’ve been consciously trying to exclude bad things from our diet such as fast food, high fructose, and foods with hydrogenated oils. The next step for us is to hopefully prepare meals in advance and freeze them and pull them out and quickly prepare as needed.

I apologize for the short post. I hope to “stockpile” a few posts this week as I will be going on a business trip a week from today.
