    • THE BAD NEWSJust 20% of the world’s population currently live atfirst world consumer status. That 20% consumes 80%of the resources and creates 80% of the waste.At the current rate of world economic growth, morethan half the global population will become firstworld consumers within as little as two decades.Australia is the X largest producer of CO2 after US andChina
    • THE GOOD NEWSWe all make hundreds of decisions thataffect the planet every day, oftenunconsciously. By developing ourknowledge around eco-sustainability, weinevitably start to make the rightchoices, contributing to the quantumnecessary to save our planet.OZ and NZ have done what…

    • GREEN YOUR GOVERNMENTTo those concerned about the costs, there willalso be many positive economic effects; butwhether this is the case or not, the risk of thealternative is unthinkable.As parents and as business people, we can’timagine why any sane person would beprepared to take that risk.We must make going green a major politicalissue!
    • GREEN YOUR BODYLike an overweight person, as a racewe are simply consuming more than wecan healthily maintain. This over-consumption is not only bad for ourbodies, but also bad for our world.
    • GREEN YOUR BODY By 2016 the cost of the American health system will have doubled to $4.1 trillion per year*. Imagine how much more effectively we could spend any portion of that than on treating ourselves for preventable illnesses stemming from inactivity and excessive consumption *2006 US Treasury prediction
    • GREEN YOUR BODYWe need a proactive, preventativesystem. Two of the biggest drivers ofthe problem are inactivity and pooreating habits.Instead of saying “If I get sick, myInsurance company or my governmentwill give me a pill”, we need to starttaking responsibility for our own health.

    • 1. BECOME ADVOCATES Health clubs need to become more than just places where people go to use exercise machines! We need to become true providers of holistic health.

A few great sources:• The Omnivore’s Dilemma – Michael Pollan• Plan B 3.0 – Lester Brown• Natural Capitalism – Amory Lovins• Collapse – Jarod Diamond• The Weathermakers and anything else by Tim Flannery• Rachel’s Health & Democracy News
