Imagine that you live on a spaceship (because you do) traveling to the nearest extra-solar star* [OK, you're on a BIG spaceship orbiting the Sun...].
What would you take? How would you do things differently?
I'm Pam Hoffman and I was 'green' when it was still a color. I started making different decisions about my personal "Conservation" back in the 80s, I just always thought of it as 'spaceship thinking' so I reused, recycled, re-purposed, composted and plain old did not get things as part of my daily routine.
I'm Jeff Miller. My parents went through the depression and WWII rationing so, I too, was raised to think of ways to reuse, recycle, and re-purpose things. I do my bit to conserve resources but I'm not radical about it. In my own bit of "spaceship thinking," I've always felt that we've been tearing apart the life support system to repair the coffee maker. However, I'm a technophile so I think that our increasing understanding and innovations will eventually solve the problem. I just hope that there's something left to save.
Topic of the week:
Conservation isn't limited to 'stuff' it can be conservation of your personal energy, your monetary resources, etc.
This week we will take a look at ways you like to shop for the holidays in relation to these 'conservation' areas.
Would you please share how You Shop for the Holidays? We used to go to a street fair in San Clements, CA every month to shop for gifts in December for the holidays. This was a fun outing and we were able to pay cash and gather what we needed over the months in preparation for the big celebrations!
