Our friends over at EarthFirst have finally put to rest a nagging question held by science fiction geeks everywhere: Was the Galactic Empire sustainable? Because seriously, if I’m going to support the environment and dress up in my Luke Skywalker suit (not the Tatooine one, the one from the epic final battle in Return of the Jedi) everyday, I want to make sure we’re on the same page.

Breaking down the original Star Wars trilogy (because the newest episodes were lame and don’t count) episode-by-episode, you’ll learn everything from Yoda’s use of eco-friendly holographic conferencing (Just like Al Gore and Prince Charles!) to Uncle Owen’s Energy-Efficient Home and vegetarian lifestyle. Oh yea, and don’t forget about all those solar-powered TIE-fighters.

Get your green geek on and check out the fun here.

Prisons profit from exploiting life and labour

Most young workers don’t want anything to do with manual labour jobs in meat and dairy, and as a result, a large majority of agricultural workers are marginalized people

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
