The royal radical, H.R.H. Charles, Prince of Wales has been promoting environmental ideas for most of his adult life. Some of his notions where ahead of his time and now the world seems to be catching up with him. His Duchy Home Farm went organic back in 1986, and markets organic products made from produce grown by his own farm and from ingredients sourced from other suppliers using farming methods that protect the countryside. The company’s profits go to charitable causes.
Three years ago, Prince Charles of Wales narrated a documentary film: “Harmony: a new way of looking at our world.” In it, he shows his passion for the environment and his over 30 years dedication to promoting a sustainable lifestyle. Capturing scenes from around the world, the film travels from organic farms to rainforests, and even features rare footage of a 1988 interview with Al Gore. The Prince made sure that the film was not so much about him, as it was about the principles that he cherishes. Ultimately, this film is a call for not just a nation, but for the entire world to unite.
As Prince Charles says, “Our children and grandchildren will ask not what our generation said, but what it did. So let us give an answer for which we can be proud.”
