My Pledge to Live Ethically By Wasting Less

I was on a study- and work-break this evening when I found the lovely Pixiepine Blog (go here). I found a recent post on there in which the author pledges to dress ethically. I think I've made my own philosophy clear many times on this site, but I would like to reiterate my belief that we all need to be conscientious consumers.

Leslie's pledge is to wear clothes that are pre-loved, handmade, reconstructed, made with ethical/environmentally-friendly materials, and made by a company with strong ethical policy and workers' rights. Ultimately, she wants to reduce the amount of things people use in the first place.

Ahhh, a girl after my own heart!

So, here is my official pledge: I promise to live in a way that leaves as little of an impact on the earth as possible, by reducing my overall buying and by trying to use products that have been...

recycled
handmade
made with environmentally-friendly components
minimally processed
and
made domestically.

If you are willing to make the same pledge, let me know! Spread the word!

Live a life that you can feel good about!
