Still working on my book full time… please forgive my long absences and short blog post!
I have a fun project starting in a couple of weeks, but until then…

I wanted to share my last repair with you.

No matter how much we (first) Refuse, and (second) Reduce, we constantly face the results of today’s poor designs and manufacturing. Repairing has been an important element of our Zero Waste lifestyle, since it represents one the many facets of REUSE. But I am so proud of my most recent achievement!

Leo fell in love with a seconhand jacket but the cuffs were worn: I repaired them with the elastic bands of a pair of worn-out socks. It literally took five minutes to accomplish, and it made one happy boy!
