Dorothea Barth-Jörgensen: “We need to change our value system at the core”
Every week, Filippa K Circle invites inspiring people to share their current mindsets. This week model Dorothea Barth-Jörgensen shares her thoughts.
My state of mind: Fluctuating from a deep excitement for life and its beauty, to a high chaotic space within me that wants to expand and let go of everything.
My best DIY tip for making every day more sustainable: I think we need to change our value system at the core—automatically this consciousness will also change the way we live our life and the choices we make as a society. Our world nowadays is more about consuming than giving back. I’ve seen images of sustainable green projects in urban cities where they plant trees and plants everywhere, making an “urban jungle”. I would love to see more of that. We need to build more creative solutions that ultimately preserve, sustain, enrich and cultivate our planet. It’s conscious living that is sustainable and equally sufficient.
My favorite organic/natural beauty product: Bone broth. It’s great for skin and body—like a power pack of all the essential nutrients.
My eco-fashion prediction: I think consumerism, fast-fashion and greed will collapse. Hopefully, humans are longing for things that have meaning and value. I think more and more people are beginning realize the beauty of living a simpler life, not wanting to own so many things. Things that don’t have a purpose become more of a burden.
