Series: Schumacher Briefings

We live in a consumer society, and over-consumption is the driving force of environmental degradation. This stark reality led Pooran Desai and Sue Riddlestone to found BioRegional Development Group. In this Briefing they show how we can meet more of our needs for wood products, paper, textiles, food and housing from local renewable and waste resources. They outline the theoretical framework of bioregional development and the award winning practical solutions that BioRegional have developed with industry partners. They quantify how we can significantly reduce CO2 emissions and recycle waste, and so greatly reduce our ecological footprint.

The entrepreneurial spirit of BioRegional has catalysed real and lasting examples of how we can meet our needs in a sustainable way and play fair with the developing world. This is the new mainstream not an alternative lifestyle.

- Anita Roddick OBE, founder of The Body Shop

We've all got a lot of learn from BioRegional – a small organisation dealing in very big ideas.

- Jonathon Porritt
