I’m sustainable

I do not own a car, instead preferring to see the world go by though a train window, or riding my bike around town. I try to eat sustainably – avoiding meat and shopping as locally as possible. I also rarely buy new clothes (too rarely some might say), repairing old threads or buying second-hand.

The future I want

I hope we take greater care of the space around us. We always talk of ‘escaping’ to the countryside or to the beach, when we should be focusing on making our living spaces such that they don’t need escaping from. I also hope that the industrial livestock farming practices of today become a thing of the past, looked upon by future generations as a terrible mistake.
