    So, I've been doing a bunch of 'Stumbling' and Youtubing, and reading blogs and what not on things you can do in order to get away from commercial needs, to start living a sustainable life.

    Since I'm gearing up for a move out of the US, to Panama, where I intend to do my sustainable living, I'm writing down and prepping for some of these life hacks.


    What I have in store:::

    - Rocket Stoves/brick/clay ovens to get away from buying propane
    - Fabric scraps turned into toilet paper 'squares' (already have a small hoard)
    - Composting toilets
    - Oil lamps
    - Plenty of old bed sheets (thrift finds) for making basic tunics and drawstring pants
    - Plant pulp for paper making
    - Basic farming and canning
    - Animal husbandry


    What are some of the things you do to live a sustainable life?

    Picked up a couple hand powered Drills yesterday, great condition, and crank style instead of egg-beater style

    Pannama might not be the best place to move to but good luck!

    I'm not interested in people's opinions as to where is best to live. I am looking for tips and tricks to use for sustainable/eco-living.
