Sustainability, Integrity, Creativity & Conscious Community
Common Threads - A Dynamic New Impulse for Change
We are living in a time when our retail choices have become a moral act, where our consumer behaviours have become a rich commodity and where our purchasing decisions have a far reaching global impact. Quite literally, where and how we spend our money has become directly linked to the expression of our integrity. Wait…What? Really? YES
Hyper consumerism, fast fashion, planned product obsolescence, large scale environmental degradation, landfill, sweatshop labour– these things both effect and are effected by our daily lifestyle choices. The real cost of that cheap white t-shirt you brought last week at your local retail franchise? It cost considerably more than we could imagine.
Come and Be Part of the Change
We get lost if we stay stuck in confusing and mucky feelings of guilt, blame, shame and powerlessness. Let’s not stay stuck in that cycle of disempowerment any longer. Step by step, hand in hand, through collaboration and community lets journey together, to mutually inspire, to create personal changes in our life style choices that will have far- reaching impacts.
Common Threads Woven Through Community Integrates sustainability, creativity, and traditional hand-crafted wisdom of the ages, where you’ll be left feeling deeply inspired to become part of a brand new impulse of change. Come and join some of the movers and shakers – many of the people from our local communities -who are on the cutting edge of sustainability and change. Individuals who are paving a new way forward that is creatively brilliant, accessible, sustainable and hands on inspiring. Come and see what they’re doing and how you can become part of this new way forward. Because we all carry a thread that collaboratively weaves the health and wellbeing of our collective future on this planet. Each and every one of us.
Join us for our Annual Event ‘Common Threads Woven Through Community’ held at The Sound Temple as we weave something truly remarkable together!
