1.0 out of 5 stars Title - misleading March 9, 2014
Format:DVD
It wasn't so much about simple living as much as it was about green living. Not what I expected, I felt the host talked to the audience as if we didn't speak English, got boring quickly.

1.0 out of 5 stars simple living or cities going green by mayoral decree? February 4, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I was really disappointed, I'm interested in being green, eating clean, and downsizing/rightsizing. This didn't touch on anything other than Chicago constructing green buildings, green garden roofs, and parks. It's all about Chicago city living and being greener.

1.0 out of 5 stars don't waste your time January 7, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Didn't finish watching this. It was very dull. She was only talking about what some of the cities were doing (back in 2006 or 2007) to be green.

3.0 out of 5 stars Only watched part of it September 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
It wasn't exactly what I expected. I expected to hear about how to live simply but it wasn't like that. I might try to watch it again at some point.

2.0 out of 5 stars GREEN' does NOT = Simple May 11, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Commercialism confuses simplicity.

I wasn't very inspired by the show or it's content. In fact, it reminds me of all the 'Farm-to-table' efforts around town that welcome welfare recipients to their establishments by offering 50% discounts on food items. So why aren't those people there? Because they are almost always located in places where those people are not welcomed or 'belong'. There seemed to be a similar correlation in this video.

Matters discussed in the video:

This video focuses much more on alternative 'green' solutions, but they aren't necessarily simpler. There's very little, if anything, SIMPLE about what has become a conventional flush toilet.

Yes, simple is choosing cloth napkins and diapers over paper. However, in reality, handwashing is simpler than machine washing. Electricity in the home is not essential. And forgoing it is infinitely simpler than even solar panels. What's NOT simple is Commercialism. And much of what's portrayed here is mostly a part of it: Middle-class people, with middle-class university degrees taking a middle-class approach to economic self preservation.

Logically, simpler should also be more affordable and more available, but it's not. I think that part of the message did come across in the video.

In a practical sense, so much of what is covered here, seemed to be class-based. For example, she suggested using a public library, not just reduce the need to buy books (economy and recycling), but to meet people. SO much of the video is with reference to a mega-urban environment, so I'll stick to that demographic.

1.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother January 28, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video
There was plenty of preaching about global warming and living simply to "save the planet" but little of use or interesting.
