earth matters

I have a little something exciting to share with you all in the coming weeks but before that I thought I should share with you a bit about something that is close to my heart. Deep down I am really an earth loving eco warrior. I try to steer clear of all things that scream 'green' but I am a total sucker for all things that are kind to our earth. It all started when I was completing my major project, I stumbled upon some poignant words by Lidewij Edelkoort that still resonate with me to this day. It is an excerpt from the 'Earth Matters - the story' found on one of my favorite websites trend tablet.

"we have taken it all and it is still not enough;
we have taken it all and transformed it into waste
which we give back to the earth
as a poisonous present and
as an unsolvable mass of matter"

It is these words that drive my passion for the things I create. My major project 'Assemble' was a nod towards where I would like to head in the future but for now I shall start small... so watch this space
