They are not the mark of weakness, but of power. They speak more eloquently than ten thousand tongues. They are the messengers of overwhelming grief, of deep contrition, and of unspeakable love. ❤️ #teardropring
WASTE CAMPAIGN // We held our first waste campaign meeting last week. After realising how many issues there are around waste we could potentially campaign on (and that should be dealt with - isn't that overwhelming?), we did some brainstorming and put down all our ideas (as seen on the picture!). Afterwards we measured all of them on a scale from 1 to 5 in terms of (1) achievability (as campaigners, how much power do we have to bring about desirable change and attain our goals?) and (2) impact (does tackling certain problem contribute towards reducing carbon emissions and diverting waste from landfills?). In our next meeting we'll choose two or three of the underlined ideas and will discuss how we will go about campaigning on these issues. Stay tuned, or better, join in!
I'm worried about us. 2017 didn't even pass half and 2000 humans already lost their lives trying to find peace and dignity. White privilege, we travel to escape from daily life or from cloudy weather with our European passports in comfy seats.
Fleeing war is not a coincidence. It's the consequence of profitmaking for industrial countries like us, Germany, selling weapons, establishing our businesses, wearing out the washy lines between slavery and childlabour.
We need secure travelroutes for the ones suffering from our politics, forced to leave their homelands.
We need to learn to share what we have taken without permission.
We consume and consume, drown humanity and human basic rights in our oceans until even the oceans don't contain life anymore.
No borders, no nations.
Do you think i should stick myself this tattoo?
And yes i know, it's not beautiful.
I was so upset with the amount of rubbish I picked up on my way back across #ClaphamCommon a few days ago. I did four trip to the giant bins just a few metres away. It was the evening crowd, groups of alcohol bottles/cans and bottles of water. To anyone running training groups in the evenings, please make sure you clients take everything home or put them in the bins :-( •
Dear @rei I'm so conflicted. I'm one of your members and even took a wonderful guided hike with you in the Whites of NH in Sept. 2016. Here's the rub: I do not pay to be a member of or to park at Stone Mountain Park, with whom you're now doing business, as parking fees basically go toward supporting a Confederate monument. Plus, this park does not have a recycling program, uses water profligately for recreation, allows drones, and has frowned upon volunteerism with regards to keeping the mountain itself clean. Yet your CEO feels strongly about environmental stewardship. “Stewardship is a choice and a mindset. It means that we look at our business differently, and we take individual responsibility for making a positive, lasting impact.” –Jerry Stritzke, REI President and CEO | Have you considered that operating at a Confederate monument amounts to subsidizing it on some level. I love REI and I love the mountain itself but am having a hard time reconciling this. Will you help the park instate a recycling program? #environmentaljustice#recycling#protecttheenvironment#rei#packitinpackitout#leavenofootprints
