Reasons for doing stuff:
1. To save money.
2. To live sustainably.
3. To be healthy.
4. To cultivate art.
* Fossil-fueled travel to be limited to family, health, and business reasons.
* Watch the Story of Stuff to understand how thoughtless SHOPPING can HURT people and damage places nearby and halfway around the world.
* Don’t underestimate the power of breathing deeply… and stretching like a cat.
* Eating well seems more expensive until you factor in the long-term cost to healthcare, the community, and the environment.
* The Reason for the reasons is Love.
This is on my mind now because I’m turning 22 soon and I’m about to graduate from college / become a “grownup” / join the ranks of the unemployed. :P
