Call me an hippie...

Excellent educational video about how to eliminate waste and how to consume without feeling guilty about creating waste... We all need to start thinking differently.

Looks like Nike didn't compromise looks after all with their "considered" products...

But is this enough?

you might consider picking up the book in a store as opposed to ordering it online (comes with uneccesary packaging).

I think what it ultimately comes down to is, is that people need to consider what materials and manufacturing methods go into creating a product that one desires. Is it something that you keep for a lifetime? If not, will the product end up in a landfill? or will it get recycled? We need to think about the life span of products, from start to finish, then to their rebirth!

It's not just about the environment, it's about our health. It makes me sick to know what kind of chemicals are released into air and dumped into our water sources. If we can actively aid in the way company cut corners, we can avoid so many sicknesses... so ask yourselves, what can I do?
