Could be anywhere - country or city

The literal definition of living off-grid (or offgrid or living off the grid) is living without Utility power or water or waste disposal.

It can go further than this, to include being disconnected from the infrastructures that make life convenient, including roads, banks, schooling, doctors and so on. Even the Internet is a grid of sorts. Wikipedia has an extended discussion

Jewel spurns Discovery

Jewel Kilcher - prefers Bravo to Discovery

Raised off the grid in Alaska, singer Jewel Kilcher,  known professionally as Jewel, has sold tens of millions of records.  The multi-platinum-selling singer and songwriter also co-hosts a successful TV series.  But she is having nothing to do with her family’s latest venture – a low-budget reality show following their off-grid lives.

Her father and siblings are cashing in on her fame by allowing cameras from Discovery TV to follow them as they endure winter off the grid in Alaska.

Green Christmas starts here
by NICK ROSEN on DECEMBER 16, 2008 - 0 Comments in COMMUNITY

Now where can I get Green Snow? Its beginning to feel a lot less like Christmas.

As ecological considerations remain high on the agenda, its goodbye to pointless presents and gift wrap, a lighter touch on the table groaning with food, a new set of rules for the blazing log fire,  and a carefully considered decision to go without the traditional tree.

The equation is simple: Christmas is the time of maximum consumption each year. The environment is being damaged by overconsumption.  Therefore Christmas should be about consuming less. (more…)
