I play guitar in a rock band, dance at No Lights No Lycra and read a lot of feminist theory. I love old stuff and making new stuff out of old stuff.

Some things I do to help keep the cycle of stuff more constant:

- a percentage of my electricity is sourced from green energy sources
- donating things that other people might use (the money goes to helping charities and a lot of their unsold clothes are made into industrial rags)

- when I can I buy fresh fruit and veg from a place that buys from local suppliers - less freight=less pollution and fresher groceries :) also less packaging if you take your own bags
- anything around the house that can be remade into something is put in the recycling bin
- E-cycle Recovery are a great company (there's probably an e-cycling company near you) that recycles electronic waste from computers to tvs to stereos! You pay a small fee and they deconstruct everything down to its components to be reused safely and without harming the environment. Amazing!
