When my dad first heard about me blogging, his first question was not “why?” but “are there any pictures of me on it?” Erm, no dad, it’s about eco-living, product origin and shopping consciously.
But come to think of it, he is right, he does deserve to be on the blog! Why? Because he is an excellent role model for sustainability.
He never buys anything he doesn’t need, rarely shops for clothes, buys good quality items so he rarely needs to replace anything, gives us gifts we want and need, eats mostly organic and locally grown foods (his wife helps on that part), recycles everything, reuses his coffee mug over and over (the so called dish-saving-program that sometimes drives us a little crazy), and always bikes to work; rain or shine.
It so happens, that he has just gotten a new t-shirt which is perfect for his first blog photo. (A gift from my sister – he did NOT go shopping.) It has glasses and a mustache, just like him. So he gets to be on the blog in a not made in China, but El Salvador, t-shirt. It’s looking pretty cool, I must say.
