What we do to the earth, we do to ourselves. so what we do to ourselves, we do to the earth. i’m feeling inspired by these ideas from a deep ecology workshop that i went to today. and they made me think of mending, and in particular this jumper, my eternal work in progress. when i choose to value this jumper and mend it, instead of throwing it away and getting a new one, i am committing to caring for little bits of this earth. tending to them, not throwing them away. valuing them. even if they look a little bit scruffy. even if they aren’t my favourite. taking responsibility. saying no to the lure of shiny and new. saying no to fast fashion, throw away culture, environmental degradation. and saying yes to meaningful connection. embracing creativity and wabi sabi beauty. saying yes to loving this earth. in small but practical ways.
