Eco Volunteer How not consume the Earth
welcome
whenever a new member joins, ecovolunteers become happy and hope for our planet increases.
The goal of ecovolunteers
Our goal here is to create a place for finding sustainable ways of living together and to teach each other how can we reduce our consumption. We hope that the people who think that the existence of human beings is important because of the capability of humans to love and the human creativity that is used in building our great civilization and that there is enough time for solving the environmental crisis will express their solutions here.

The Earth's biosphere is changing under the pressure of Consumption and the resulting waste of Industrial lifestyles. We need to reduce our impact on global warming by reducing our consumption. There seems to be no serious political will for reduction in emissions because it does not match with the goals of economic development, and it is detrimental to the power status of present politicians.

On this site we try to see how every human being can be an Ecovolunteer and bring in ideas to reduce our consumption.

We hope that Ecovolunteers will create Ecovolunteer human life styles, affecting families, offices, communities, countries and the whole global human society. We believe the ultimate solution is to reduce our consumption to a level that the Earth can regenerate and sustain this unique habitat for humans and other living beings.
What is the problem?
The Earth was our mother, it is our birthplace, and now we have grown up. We human beings are now like teenagers, that can destroy our birthplace by competing for more consumption. The destruction is so huge that our mother earth is not able to clean up our mess fast enough. If we do not stop our overconsumption, The Earth will not continue to be the suitable place it was for us and most other living beings.

The main problem of our age:
Scientists have reached the conclusion that the biggest threat humans will face in the near future is the irreversible warming of the atmosphere. With overconsumption of fossil fuels, human beings may face extinction if the warming is not stopped. The main reason for our extinction will be climate change caused by the warming of our only habitat. After the extinction of humans, life will continue on Earth with creatures that will evolve in the new different climate.
Our method
We ask ecovolunteers to tell the environmental problems that we are facing today and to tell the methods on how to solve the problems.
Types of consumption
Joyful consumption
Humans need joyful consumption for a happy life. We call a consumption joyful when it does not lead to harming ourselves or others by destroying the environment. Consumer economics has used this motivation to be happy in humans, by creating the hope and the idea of health, well-being, dignity, success, and so on. This method has created a high-consumption lifestyle for humans in the industrial age.

The solution
By correcting are consuming behaviors voluntarily, we can reduce the consumption of mankind while maintaining the growth and happiness of everyone.
Explaining the solution to the environmental crisis of the earth
By becoming eco volunteers and adopting an earth-centered view, people can consume in a joyful manner and they can also end the current consumption based lifestyle. If the politicians adopt an earth-centered view and if they adopt a common political will, they can come out of the damaging cycle of competing for power and they can replace the current consumerism economics with an earth-centered economics. If humanity adopts an earth centered view in time, global warming could stop.
Joyful consumption starts with changing our lifestyle, correct use of things, having contentment with what is needed and not buying things that we don’t need. The other aspects of joyful consumption include:
Recycling
Remaking
Repurposing
Reusing
New words
Earthly Crisis
Mankind, by extravagance, has endangered the future of its civilization and most of the living beings on earth. The by-products of the consumer lifestyle of societies that rely on mass industrial production, in the form of gas, liquid and solid, have entered the natural cycle of the earth. The severity of these wastes is such that large areas of the environment are damaged and if consumption is not adjusted as soon as possible, it will alter the natural balance of the entire planet in the not so distant future. The biggest destructive factor is the entry of fossil fuel smoke into the atmosphere and the dissolution of its carbon dioxide in ocean water. Greenhouse gases have caused the temperature of the atmosphere to rise, and as temperatures rise, swamps near the two poles of the earth begin to melt. As a result, swamp gases such as methane, which have been frozen for millions of years, are increasingly entering the atmosphere. The thermal effect of swamp gases is more than thirty times that of carbon dioxide, and as the Earth's atmosphere becomes warmer than allowed (one and a half to two degrees Celsius higher than the air before the Industrial Revolution), the melting rate of the swamps will reach such a level that swamp gases will continue to heat the atmosphere alone, even if humans cut off all their carbon dioxide production. As global warming continues, it is estimated that up to three-quarters of all living things, including humans, will be extinct. To prevent the earth from falling into the cycle of automatic heating, by modifying human consumption and converting fossil fuels into clean energy (solar, wind); The remaining opportunity is estimated to be between fifteen and sixty years. According to reliable scientific reports, humanity has a limited opportunity to resolve the climate crisis of earth.

Increasing consumption
During the Industrial Revolution, with the invention of machines that made it possible to use the energy of fossil fuels to do heavy work, human ability to use the God-given resources of the earth greatly increased. The production capacity of necessities as well as new products increased and the way was opened to increase the general welfare of human beings. Mastering the natural environment and creating prosperity, with the consumption of new products and the possibilities that technological advances had made possible, became the target of intellectual, scientific and political leaders. And given that the more consumption there is, the more production is needed, and the result will be higher wages and wealth and prosperity for the greater population, a practice that all nations have eagerly followed without calculating the limitations of earth.
This attitude has made consumerism the mainstay of economic growth over the past two centuries. In recent decades, however, with the dominance of financial and industrial powers over politicians, production has become practically a servant of consumption. The primary goal of increasing welfare has been overshadowed by the profitability of transnational capital, and the blind goal of consumption has become the main goal. As a result, the world economy has become based on consumerism and the result of the efforts and lives of most human beings, in practice, has become the main cause of daily suffering and misery of human beings and the destruction of the environment of other creatures and has caused deep concern about future civilization. The theory of consumerism, which was intended for human comfort, had the disadvantage that it did not pay attention to the limited capacity of the earth. Consumerism, which has been the method of competition of industrialized countries for two centuries, after widening the gap between rich and poor and creating great wars, in the last half century, has led to the current consumption of economics and politics and public education and social and individual lifestyles. Mankind has become industrialized, resulting in the aforementioned environmental crisis on earth. Today's world economy has to grow in order not to collapse, and this growth is against the natural balance of the earth. If we do not want consumerism to lead to the destruction of civilization, we must replace it with an earth-centered environmental world view.


Earth-centered environmental world view
The solution to environmental crisis is to give a decisive place to the power of the planet, in other words, to make human attitudes and activities earth-centered. The material and practical aspects of an earth-centered environmental world view are balancing consumption with resources and balancing the amount of waste production with the capacity of the natural life cycles on Earth. In an earth-centered lifestyle, production and consumption will be enough to meet human natural needs, enough to live in the lasting happiness and spiritual well-being of humankind. The result of human earth-centeredness is the end of industrial human consumption pressure on the earth's ecological balance. Since consumption depends on two factors, the consumer and the producer, the process of earth-based efforts is organized from the perspective of these two factors. The goal of the earth-centered world view in this category is to change the method of consumerism from one perspective to the attitude of a balanced amount of consumption of the consumers, including individuals and human institutions; Contrary to the pressure of manufacturers to increase consumption in the modern lifestyle. And from another point of view, the goal of earth-centered world view is to reduce the destruction of earth’s nature; because today, profitability and economic growth in the context of consumer economy, have caused the destruction of earth’s nature with the waste of produced goods that are not needed, supplying energy with fossil fuels and the destruction of nature to obtain raw materials. The current politicians of the industrial powers are practically the agents of consumerism, who, along with encouraging the bad lifestyle of consumerism through fashion and creating false values, have turned the consumers into a continuum of profit for the industrialists and the power of their politicians. The methods and policies of producers can only serve the consumer economy and can’t reduce total human waste. With the expansion of earth-centered world view, profitability of projects and economic growth will indicate more success in the
Assumptions
We think the following can be assumed as facts:

1-Human survival is desired by all societies.
2-Civilization and the human race are threatened by climate change caused by global warming.
3-The main cause of the environmental crisis is the lifestyles resulting from the consumous economy and consumerism.
4-For the first time in history, the whole of humanity is faced with a common problem that is caused by normal life of societies.
5-We still have a chance to stop global warming enter the destructive automatic climate change, phase.
6-The time limit, for automatic heating, out of human control, by gases from defrosting ancient swamps, has reached two or three decades not centuries made by the old predictions.
7-The need for urgent public action by all human beings is obvious. Immediate and urgent action by all countries is necessary to solve this global and pervasive problem.
8-None of the countries is safe from the risk of an environmental crisis, and each country's behavior affects other countries.
9-The phenomenon of consumption has two factors; Consumer and Producer. Either of these two factors can be the focus of efforts to prevent future environmental disasters.rth C
10- In the Consumer axis: Cultural and religious leaders of each region will play a key role in scientifically changing the high-consumption lifestyle to voluntary good consumption and the practical way of Earth-Centric life based on the limitations of Earth, according to geographical resources and social and historical values.
11- On the axis of production: To eliminate the policy of destructive competition and transform the economy of national interests into the concept of the economy of the whole earth for human survival, a common global Earth-Centric policy is necessary.
12- The leadership of any country in the world can be the starter of a common global Earth-Centric policy by officially inviting the leaders of all other countries.
