When we’ve been told to “get creative” in the past there are always parameters. But in this case, no parameters, we mean it. We want you to be fully creative, test out better, sustainable choices that are crazy, fun and unique to you. Have you wanted to start a new project but haven’t purchased the materials yet? Find a way to complete the project with alternate materials you already own. Have you wanted to swap out single-use plastic in your kitchen but haven’t purchased alternate tupperware? See what you may already have (jars, containers, etc.) that will work instead and don’t purchase anything new at all. Think #outsidethebox and get creative!
When we live sustainably, all bets are off when it comes to same size, color, style, model of the things we own. There is no “one-size-fits-all” to compare to when we “repurpose, refill and repair” our things (instead of buying new). Sustainability is unique, in a very good way and everyone’s vision, version and journey—the practices, processes and resources we have—are beautifully different. We celebrate this, and choose to embrace a new mindset—one filled with creative curiosity and unique confidence.
Yes, we’ve gotten weird stares at our hand-patched jean jacket or at the (cleaned) jam jars we use to refill almonds at the grocery store—our decisions and actions to #repurpose, #refill, #repair is not the norm just yet, and those stares are rather looks of curiosity. So today, we celebrate our individual, cool unique-ness. We continue to find better choices to help Our Planet by getting as creative as possible in the things we try, ways we live and resources we use, and reuse and reuse.
Get creative and find better choices that work for you, make them your own and continue to be the #ambitiousaf #badass #confident #unique #sustainable self that you are. And comment below, let us know what it means to be uniquely you.
