I have been thinking about it for some time but right now I really feel passionate about it. Maybe it's the hormones ( I often feel very mama bear towards the whole world while pregnant) but I am willing to catch onto this wave and ride it. I have thought in the past of some ways to make a difference but haven't put them into practice as much as I want...
Voluntary Simplicity. This is really the gist of it for me. Question what I *need* and only have what we need. Really look at what my "comfort" is costing. To me it's not about buying the fair trade thing it's about buying the fair trade thing only when there is a need. To me fair trade is still consuming and it can still be frivolous.
Give. Anything I find I no longer need (or never really did) can be given to any number of people. Pass it on and they will have something they need or will find that they don't have to buy it new. And give time to worthy causes.
Reuse. Which can be buy used or re purpose things. I don't need a new couch. I can just repair the tare.
Foster Community. By supporting local farmers and businesses and giving and receiving from them, etc. Have the community mindset and seek opportunities to help it grow and to help within it.
Raise Conscious Children.
Did this make sense? Is it outlandish? What do you do? Even right down to the little details what do you do or feel we can do?
