A diagram of sustainability on the island of Lanai

Lanai chart can be downloaded at http://www.livelanai.com/Live_Lanai/Home.html

“Living on an island has been compared to life on an ocean vessel.  Just as a sailing ship must contain all the essentials for life, living on an island should be the same.  In order to be sustainable, the necessities of the civilization are produced within the ecosystem of the island.  Imports are not required to maintain the system. The diagram above outlines an organizational plan for achieving a state of sustainability on Lanai.”
