Hello everyone and welcome to Suburban Stone Age! I wanted to introduce you to my channel and tell you a little bit about myself, and what the channel is all about.
My name is Rebecca. I started Suburban Stone Age in 2011, and basically my idea was that I wanted to try a little bit of everything to try to relearn a sustainable way of life in these modern times. Whether it was using really old technology, or maybe technology that was only a hundred years old, or even cutting edge technology – by just looking through what we had available and trying to recombine things we can use creative ideas to live a more sustainable life. The goal is to leave this world better than we found it.
I hope you’ll join me on our journey as we explore all the amazing things the world has to offer, and see if we can find a way to live a better life, live more sustainably, and leave things better than we found it for future generations.
