Mmmmm, delicious tea. Nothing makes me happier.
My name is Vermont, and I am passionate about environmentally sustainable development, adorable photos of puppies and tea. I fill in my time helping people fundraise for charitable causes with unique fundraising tea towels. Why not join me on the digital decking of my virtual patio for a cup and we can have a chat about how you can alter your lifestyle to be more sustainable.
I’m going to assume you already have a cup of tea in your hand, but if you don’t, scroll down to the bottom of this page and I will direct you to my favourite tea places to get yourself some high quality leaves.
Sustainable living is very important and are key to our survival as a species. Having worked in the tourism industry for years, I’ve come to believe that holidays can be a great place to start effecting changes in your lifestyle to be more ecologically responsible. I reccomned seeking out places like this eco retreat; like eating textured vegetables instead of meat, you’ll find that once you get used to eco-friendly holidays, you’ll never want to go back to your once-wasteful ways. It can also be a great way to get really close to some of our natural desinations. Another option can be to organise your own safari tent; or if you really want a home-away-from-home, there are eco-construction companies like these Broome builders who can build you the perfect retreat or health architects who can design you one from scratch.
To really make it a transformative experience, make sure you bring appropriate supplies; children create masses of waste; if you have them, please have a look at childrens’ supplier Pitta Patta’s amazing range of organic baby products. Consider vegan options for food and make sure you bring electricity-free sources of entertainment, like djembes for drum circles. If you’re staying in close proximity to other people, it’s important to play the latter at the most inappropriate times of night so as to break them out of their rat-race sleep pattern; I suggest regular drumming circles at 2:11, 4:42 and 6am. Maybe even some performance poetry or a very loud improvised funeral could be appropriate.
Thanks for taking the time to consider my point of view. I hope your tea hasn’t gone cold. If you’ve still got some left, try a google image search for puppies and just tab through it. That’s what I do.
PS. A NOTE FOR PEOPLE WHO DON’T HAVE TEA
OK, so if you don’t have tea, you need to get some. Hit up T2 online for a full range of tea and tea-cessories (though some of these are plastic!! ) or, even better, ask your mum for some.
