If the Earth Is Not Held in Your Hands, Then Who Holds It?
Dear Friends and Clients,
Many leaves have fallen off the trees and lie in golden, red, and brown piles on the ground–a reminder of what once was there but now is gone until next year when it all starts over again. As the season transitions, you may find yourself turning inwards to evaluate your expressions and actions in order to regenerate or make changes that bring about new growth.
I’ve been contemplating the concept of regeneration lately and have some thoughts to share with you. Bringing awareness to regeneration is important to me because not only does it allow us to renew ourselves, but it creates a more sustainable future. So come along for the ride as I grow myself in these concepts!
Regeneration is the engine of life; it’s what our bodies do and what Earth and all living things do. We work, play, evolve, and turn inwards to reflect, but we are never separated from this universal force. Everyone has a part to play when it comes down to how we live and what we do on planet Earth together.
Becoming more aware of regeneration is a great strategy to help our planet Earth because it empowers us to create a natural system of renewing, evolving, and thriving. As a result, we are better stewards to ourselves, others, and the planet.
The beautiful advantage of regenerative systems is that they are almost completely self-sufficient. You can have an environmentally responsible home and lifestyle without sacrificing budget, style, or comfort.
We’ve overlooked the significance of our role as citizens and
stewards of the world.
2. Select Materials with the Lowest Environmental Impact – Choose organic materials that are quickly renewable (such as fast-growing bamboo) and that are extracted in an environmentally responsible way. For example, an FSC label on wood products ensures that all wood used in the product was sustainably harvested.
4. Designing for longevity – Design durable and timeless spaces by choosing quality over quantity, classics over trendy, and simplicity/functionality over embellishments. Using flexible elements like modular carpets and area rugs has the added benefit of being easy to clean without requiring a lot of cleaning products. Suppressing the urge to completely change your interior or renovate every couple of years also reduces waste and promotes sustainable longevity.
You hold the Earth in your hands.
Every small action you take in your home to
turn from WASTE TO REGENERATE
helps our Earth in a huge way.
