Insteading is a website founded with the aim to help people find and pursue a more positive life journey. This positivity, according to Insteading, can be achieved on a global level, if people will generally turn to nature and become more positive for themselves, their neighbors and the world. Since the world has become more sensitive to the need to move away from the fossil fuels, people started making alternative choices concerning the clothes they wear, the products they purchase and transportation they use. Insteading argues particularly for this need to make proper choices in this respect- meaningful instead of disposable, caring instead of neglecting, sustainable instead of unhealthy and community-related instead of selfish. Insteading is focused on gardening, animals, construction, and energy, all from the angle above stated choices.
