Ecolantis

About

Ecolantis is a new model for a human-inclusive ecosystem. We are a sustainability guide for restructuring our lives and society in a way that is modeled after nature. We believe that we can all live harmoniously with the planet, and we know the solutions to our many environmental problems already exist in front of us in the natural world. Ecolantis is here to bring those solutions together so we can all do our part to change systems and grow a greener future.

What we do

Ecolantis educates people about the systems around us that create environmental imbalances. We offer a wide range of sustainable and environmentally sensible solutions for people and communities who want to disconnect from these harmful systems for life.

We are a community that actively works together to bring people back to the earth. Ecolantis shares original content via blog, podcast, and free webinars. We are available for speaking engagements, consulting services, as well as content sharing. If you have knowledge to share, we want to share it too; we are always looking for ways to spotlight Ecolantians doing their part for the planet.

Ecolantis is a community of people who consciously refrain from villainizing the well-meaning consumer for the negative impacts their purchasing choices and everyday activities have made on the environment, and instead provide a bird’s eye view of where and how larger production systems beyond our control are broken or missing. Ecolantis offers responsible, sustainable ways for people and communities to escape from dependency on these broken systems, returning their attention to the local natural systems that offer so much more. 

We understand that humans, in general, have become strangers to the environment and it is time that we close the gap, relearn mother nature, and live in harmony with our planet once more.
