A MANIFESTO FOR ALL SEASONS

We are PIECES of one whole.
CONNECT
and
COLLABORATE; in thought or practice or both.
Consider and EXPLORE your options.
Be BRAVE.
Be RESOURCEFUL.
Shop LOCAL and INDEPENDENT as much as possible.

Seek out TRANSPARENCY in production.
CHALLENGE industry standards and consumer expectations.
Human and environmental HEALTH are IMPORTANT.
Remember this when you CREATE something new,
or before you discard something old (or new, or middle-aged).

Sustainability is not black and white.
So be OPEN and
TALK about it.
QUESTION everything and LISTEN carefully.
Where does everything come from? How is it made? Who is it made by? How can we make it BETTER?
NURTURE your awareness of the world around you.
Take time for yourself and connect to what you LOVE.
UNDERSTAND that change won’t happen overnight.

So CELEBRATE the small achievements
and
Allow them to ENCOURAGE you to keep going;
PASSIONATELY,
CURIOUSLY,
and with love.
