In the spirit of downsizing for a big move, I watched this great video on minimalism. Now, I by no means would consider myself a minimalist, but I try to take steps to continue in that direction. .
One thing that really stood out to me was the idea of “downsizing responsibly” - that it is our moral duty to declutter in a fashion best for our beautiful planet. .
Clearly, not perfect, but I started recycling my old clothing and using bamboo straws this year. Little by little; eh? What are your planet-friendly goals this year?
Note how one of my companions is clutching a gift from @rhodycraft because when people come all the way over from Scotland to take a Rhode Islander for a ride in Central Park, that is what you bestow upon them. Funniest thing: she gave me the exact same item, an eyeglass case, only hers was Harris Tweed instead of printed with a map of RI. #perfectgift
