Dear Pluto...An ode to slow fashion.

So Dear Pluto,

I would like to thank you for your rummaging, picking, and preening through cast-offs to give me some lovely old things to look at and choose.

Because it makes me sad that so much new 'stuff' is created every day, especially when there are so many old things that are just as fine and already proven to withstand the test of time.

I'm bored of the hurried, stock-standard, one-size-fits-all, kiddie-hurting fashion and fickle trends - I'm over the 'same'.

So, Dear Pluto. I'm really looking to coming and checking you out at your new home on Wilshire St, and hope to see all my friends there too.

It's been awhile

Yes, yes it has. Quite possibly the most intense three weeks of my life! But why bamaboozle with all at once? Instead keep checking-in and I'll drip feed you the best of what's been going on bit-by-bit.

But firstly, 'Collaborative Consumption, The Story of Stuff and the responsibility of waste now seems to be back in vogue and doing the social media rounds.

Yet decision makers seem to be doing diddly squat about it (If I'm wrong please, please shoot me back an example). Mac are a big offender but by no means the worst, for me the problem is much closer to home - the cafe next door still insist on serving my vege lasagne and salad in polystyrene.

We're working on it.

In the meantime, here's a little treat from Leyla. Beautful to look at, but would love to see a little more instruction on what the bloody hell we're meant to do about it. How do I make sure my phone and 'stuff' in general can be re-used.
