Thanks for efforts to globalize this article. In it's current, more geographically diverse form, some article restructuring is needed, in my opinion. After the article lead, it now jumps right in to environmentalism in the U.S. Before it does so, though, some broader, definitional elaboration would be helpful, such as the material currently later in the article on 'scope of the movement'. Kind regards, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 10:46, 23 February 2013 (UTC)
- Have made a few tweaks, towards further globalizing the article. Despite the helpful additions, it remains US-centric and in need of further restructuring. Some of the material in the US section may be more appropriate in the Environmental movement in the United States article. A summary of key perspectives from related articles on Australia, New Zealand and South Africa would be useful to add here, too. Thanks, DA Sonnenfeld (talk) 11:01, 6 March 2013 (UTC)
- Article structure remains rather jumbled, with broad overview information, then country-specific information, then topical information. There are, in my opinion, probably too many different -- and diverse -- subtopics included within this article at present. Reorganization needed...

Proposed merge with Ecology movement
Deep green environmentalism
In the text it states: Deep Ecology is an ideological spinoff of the ecology movement that views the diversity and integrity of the planetary ecosystem, in and for itself, as its primary value.
Can we add: Followers of this ideology can be called deep green environmentalists ?
In the Deep green environmentalism article, we can then put the following: Similar to dark greens, "deep greens" put most of the blame of the current environmental problems on the industry, and also follow an anti-consumerist ideology. For individuals, they advocate adopting a simple/low-tech lifestyle, yet accept using green technologies whenever this is not possible. They also follow a non-anthropocentric environmental ideology. They also believe that the collapse of the current society, due to environmental difficulties, is at hand and thus also prepare for this collapse.
neutrality of critisism
Terms suggested by user:Gravuritas
user:Gravuritas gave some terms while editing. (see Edit History) I googled "Rag & bone environment", I found this:  & with "responsible care management system", this: . Not sure if it is the right content. (I might add it when I have time. You can add it if you want...) -- Petorial (talk) 03:52, 6 April 2014 (UTC)
- Sorry if I was rather short & cryptic in the edit note. I thought that the claims that interest in recycling etc was new, and business's interest in environmental issues was new, were inaccurate. The responsible care management system was launched by the chemical industry in 1986, for instance. And 'Rag and Bone' men drove round the streets in the UK, buying up stuff and selling/recycling it until about 50 years ago. And re-using vehicle parts from a car-breaker used to be much more common than it is now. While many new re-use/ recycle initiatives are to be welcomed, there should be no pretending that this never happened before. The little chunk I deleted from the article was making that claim.

Merge with Ecology movement
I performed the merge. Very little was salvageable material—either unsourced or unsourced and biased. I'd encourage those who are interested to look back at the version of the ecology movement page and rework and find sources for unsourced material. Karmos (talk) 06:14, 20 July 2014 (UTC)
