This week, TinyHomestead was featured in the McGill Daily article titled "Diversifying Environmentalism". This piece focused on the lack of diversity within sustainability, and how marginalized communities are disproportionally affected by environmental destruction.
"The concept of sustainability is held up by three major pillars, which are social, environmental, and economic. ‘Mainstream’ environmental movements have sought to adapt in a way that intersects these three pillars. However, studies are increasingly showing the lack of diversity within environmental sectors and related mainstream movements. This homogeneity in environmental movements limits not only their accessibility, but also their effects. Issues related to the environment tend to have disproportionate effects on those who face economic or social oppression."
