So the downside of all this conservation of resources–the downside of “Reduce, Reuse and Recycle” is something that I’m calling “Ecorexia.” These are the people that take extreme measures in their conservation. The ones that reuse plastic bags for a year, or don’t use any heat in the winter. The ones who may be disguising their depravation as conservation. In your quest to do right by the planet, beware the siren call of ecorexia.

Trend: Ecorexia–the disorder of “extreme” conservation.
