GOING ABROAD UNDERMINES ENVIRONMENT & LOCAL ECONOMIES


We battle the influx of cheap imports. We battle the environmental inertia of mainstream consumerism.

It’s easy to preach to the choir, but convincing the congregation is ongoing. 
Disposables are easy, reusables are work.
A single plastic bag outlives the user by 900 years, whereas a (washable) quality reusable will last for life.

But it begs a bigger question for me. 
Is the reluctance to be responsible an epidemic of lifestyle? a desire for ease and a distain for labour.

Does it impact more than environmental concerns, but our entire economy?

When we use cheap foreign labour, our own industry dies. 
When we fail to support our local producers: we impact community, employment, quality & diversity.
