is always proof of a productive mind." ~Anni Albers
The food we eat
The stuff we make a home out of
The packaging that contains stuff we want
The clothing we wear
...all of this offers the taste, smell, sound, sight, feel...of happiness.
Changing the framework to include less in each case...
less choice of foods (meatless, package-free)
less stuff in our house
less choice of stuff (package-free, fair)
less choice of clothing (fair to farmers, garment workers + the planet)
...requires a bit more creativity.
The positive outcomes of less rainforest being clearcut for cattle, less resources being used making stuff we don't need, less landfill waste, less plastic that will never leave this earth, less abuse of garment workers + farmers, and less pollution + degradation from the textile industry...create a deeper happiness...a happiness that lasts + extends to others.
I'd say this logic is proof of a productive mind...in action. ;)
