Free Life On Earth - A Registered Non Profit Organisation

Dear all

I think most of you are aware that I am part of a Non Profit Organisation called Free Life On Earth (FLOE).

We are a group of like-minded individuals passionate about promoting the leading of lifestyles more in tune with our natural environment. We promote the use of renewable energy, recycling, reusing, reducing, stopping wastage, conserving natural resources and living "off grids". Support South Africa in its efforts to go green and free life on Earth by joining FLOE. At the moment the only way to join FLOE is via our FaceBook Group. We will add other methods of joining FLOE in the near future.

FLOE stands for "Free Life on Earth". This signifies our two tenets: 1. Life is energy, by harnessing sustainable renewable energy to meet our energy needs, we are freeing life on Earth; 2. Modern living has necessitated us placing a cost on living. We would like to show that it is possible to reduce one's cost of living, at no cost to the well-being of life and our natural environment, thereby offering a life with more freedom.

Our main objective is the promotion of, and education and training programmes / initiatives relating to environmental awareness, greening, clean-up and sustainable development projects.

Here are some links for further reading:
  • FLOE has a BLOG and newsfeed. Please see:
  • FLOE has a presence on Facebook. Log in and search for the FLOE (Free Life On Earth) Group or click here. Free life on Earth by joining FLOE.
  • Read our introductory document and see what we are up to.
  • Read our NERSA submission. NERSA stands for the National Energy Regulator of South Africa. FLOE's submission contains important information about why we believe that fossil fuels (coal and nuclear energy) and huge 34% annual price increases are not the only option and that there are cheaper and more reliable sources of energy available.

Please start considering how you can reduce your impact our our fragile planet. Every little bit counts. One drop of water doesn't make an ocean, but our collective drops of water will add up to a very big ocean.

If you wish to be involved in FLOE, please email me or phone me on 021 551 9935. I look forward to hearing from you.
