Survey: Are You a Retro-Progressive?
Kate Tennier writes about becoming a "retro-progressive"-making cookies instead of buying them, using a clothesline instead of in a dryer. "The term is most often used to define a category of music, but it can just as easily apply to any behaviour that draws from past "best practices" to create a better life in the world we inhabit now: a retrieving of the baby from the proverbial bathwater, if you will.....There's a lot more than homemade cookies, air-dried clothes and free-range children that are making comebacks. Farmers' markets, car-free days, 100-mile diets and counter-consumer movements have all grown in popularity." ::Globe and Mail
