Eco-Village - Attempting to create a natural balance for the environment

* Today's article was written by Stuart Hopes who shares information here about how an eco-village is kind of like a mini society that focuses on permaculture, ensuring a balanced relationship with nature, micro-systems, human traffic, community, buildings, and more.  Further information can be found at:

With the aim of creating and presenting to the world an outstanding example, of what it means to be alive in contact with nature and in a sustainable way, then in this regard the global eco-village network concept is developed. This helps in auditing and provides the measuring rods for every individual and also for the existing villages and for communities, in comparing their current status.

There is variety of eco-friendly products available in the market now a day like umbrella, car, etc and many more. The umbrella has been put forth by Green Home Company for the first time in the market. This is the special type of non biodegradable umbrella which is made from recycled plastic and shredded wood. The fabric of the umbrella is also made up from recycled plastic which again reduces air pollution and is manufactured without usage of any poisonous toxins materials. The second most important product in this category is Eco trend collagen natural interior paint which is of a very superior quality and its tendency of collagen binding and mineral additives for mold and mildew resistance and also for generating negative ions which also results in enhancing indoor air quality.

Eco Village works with the goal of becoming more and more social, economical and ecologically sustainable. There may be small population area of people ranging from 50-150 as this type of size is considered to be the maximum social networking. It is often composed of people who have chosen an alternative to be in centralized electrical, water and sewage systems. Many of the people will see the breaking down of this type of traditional forms of community having wasteful consumerist lifestyles. The goal of it is to be a sustainable habitat and provides most of its needs on site. However it is always not possible to get self-sufficient goal or desired outcome.

The hindrance of restrictive policies such as zoning and building codes in the development of housing and infrastructure in urban areas in particular is also discussed. An Eco Village normally relies on green infrastructural capital, renewable energy, ecological footprint, etc. it may an indigenous group which traditionally were very much self sufficient and living in a close relation with nature. But the modernity of western living has very much changed this type of relationships with a great deal. That’s why one wishes to use permaculture as a tool to face this problem. And also help in empowering the new world changers to make the real differences in their own countries.
