Happerley’s Sustainability Advisor
Did you know there is no opposite to ‘consumer?’ Perhaps this is because we all consume – because of course we must!
The problem we all face is that most of us consume far too much and too mindlessly.
We must break such habits conditioned from childhood to save this plant of ours.
We need to discover conscious consumption and that only starts with an awareness. We then need to awake our senses to new values and experiences, turning perceived personal losses into almighty gains. Consider us addressing an addiction.
The first step is self acceptance (the awareness), but the second must be a means of filling the vacuum. This requires both a personal toolkit and a new perception.
So, all our journeys begin with an awareness of impacts and an awareness of a better way of living. These only carry forward with new discoveries in oneself, and a greater appreciation of our bodies, our minds, the food we eat and our shared environment.
I know Get Sust! will not change the world but we hope and believe our events will help change OURselves.
Positive attitudes lead to positive outcomes and these events will help you discover the benefits through a better universal understanding but more than that, a discovery of a few of the joys of living a little differently.
Join us – these will, I promise, be engaging, inspiring, nourishing and sustainable experiences, but also great fun!
