Remember when, as kids, we would swap stickers or marbles with our friends on the playground? Or hearing about the glass milk bottles that the milkman
would collect and deliver on doorsteps? What about taking your shoes to the cobbler or borrowing your neighbours cake-tin/lawnmower/car?
Too much stuff
The advancements of the 20th and 21st centuries have come at quite a
cost- it’s often easier and cheaper to purchase and consume in excess, rather than sharing, looking-after and re-useing what we already have, with dire consequences- landfills are overflowing, and the air, soil, and rivers are being polluted beyond repair.
StillSparkling is an initiative that offers a solution to the unnecessary pollution and waste caused by the production and use of plastic water bottles: water on tap- simple, yes, but also smart.
Sure, you say,
but some of the technological advancements have been great, look at connectivity! And yes, it’s true- Tom Strömberg and Cecilia Paulsson will be joining us on 15th of August to discuss a lifestyle choice, often referred to as collaborative consumption, that makes use of connectivity to share, distribute, and exchange the resources we have. Come and find out how you can minimise overconsumption, spending and landfills by getting more from buying less and buying locally.
