I really appreciate how everyone is bringing in so many different dimensions to this discussion. The environment is key and part of the original mandate in Genesis. And so many examples throughout history (in Native American practices, for example) where people lived and worked in mutuality with the environment. I think this is why so many Native Americans had no category for “selling” or “trading” land with European colonists, because they did not conceptualize it as something they possessed in the way Europeans did.
