Hey gang — in case you missed it when it was published, The Good Human was included in an article titled “Eco Meets the Economy” in The New York Times 2 weeks ago.

Activities like growing and canning food, raising chickens and making your own clothes and other household goods — which in recent years have been exalted for their artisanal qualities — are now seen by many as a way to economize while staying true to green values.
Check it out if you have a few minutes, it’s a worthwhile read. “Eco Meets the Economy”
