Island in Scotland to be First 100% Self-Sustaining Place on Earth | The Mind Unleashed
Island in Scotland to be First 100% Self-Sustaining Place on Earth | The Mind Unleashed: Virescent mountains, verdant valleys, and clean energy. Sound like a scene from�The Sound of Music�or a fictional novel about utopia? It is neither. It is in fact, the description of the one place on this planet that is about to be 100% self-sustaining – Scotland’s Eigg Island. Eigg has a pristine landscape, a broad array of sustainable strategies and gets over 90% of its energy from renewable sources. Along with its witty accent, the Scots offer an example of how to live well, without fossil fuels and rampant ecological and environmental degradation.
