Tenet No. 22 from A Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders

“In order to live, we must use the Earth— but we should not use it up..  For the sake of our descendents, we must learn to grow food without depleting the soil, fish without exhausting the seas, draw energy from sunlight and wind and tides.  We must conserve the minerals we mine and the products we manufacture, recycling them as thoroughly as a forest recycles, twigs, leaves, fur, and bone.”
