Permaculture Principle #5 – Use and value renewable resources and services

Well the classic of this example would be riding in a car as opposed to riding a bicycle. One uses up resources that aren’t renewable and the other is quite renewable. I guess a better example would be of a gasoline powered car versus a bio-diesel which is ran off of plant waste that are generated each year and are much more renewable.

Another example would be of a lumbered forest. The forest can be clear-cut which makes it takes a longer time for the whole forest to regenerate. While a forest can be sustainably harvested in a way that the resources are being used and the forest is still able to be used by all manner of woodland creature.
