To make the world a better place
It is so easy to just run through life and never stop to take a second to contemplate. To look back is not my strong side, I rather plan for the future. If any of you missed out on my previous post I am very happy to tell you that we are expecting a baby on the first of July! Or you know, whenever the baby feels like joining the world that is. This life changing amazing thing is something that have made me think a lot about what I will leave behind for our children and their children and so on.
These last years I have made so many changes in my life, but all of a sudden I feel that I am not doing enough. What more could I do that I am not already doing? I am not the person who loves to mingle and I don’t attend a lot of events, but I am so happy that myself and Lisa had the great honor to be a part of the Global Change Award last week. The purpose for the competition was award innovations that help closing the loop for fashion, you can read more about the foundation here. The key speaker, David Roberts, was amazing. He talked a lot about what we can accomplish together just by shifting our mindset. I wish you all could have been there to experience the positive spirit of all these pioneers attending, because they all agreed: we are on the right track. And everybody can make a difference! So today, I thought we could share one of the small things we do everyday to make the world a better place. I will start: I always turn the water off while I am shampooing my hair. Please let me know one thing you do to make this world a little bit better.
One more think I would like to add. Their are loads of things I do in my everyday life that are not the best choice for the environment. One of the things that I would like to do is to spend less time on air planes and more on trains. And I truly hope that the making of these kind of air planes is not to far away.
