Today my attentions have been shifted towards….tie dyeing. And kindness to the earth. This year I have been fortunate to use some plastic bags that might have otherwise gone to a landfill and gave them an extra use curing out tie dye garments. There are many other repurposed things that are used in my tie dye operation, including used garments verses newly manufactured ones.
So…back to Earth Day. This is a big key to sustainability: buying things isn’t bad. When you buy, select things that can be fixed. If or when something breaks or stops working, try to fix it. If you can’t fix it, try to sell or give it to someone who can. If that isn’t an option, try to recycle it. If that isn’t an option, try to repurpose it. If that isn’t an option, try to repurpose some part(s) of it. Yes, some things simply are disposable. But, many things can be reused and given a new life and help save the planet.
It’ll make you feel good.
