Day 17

Holiday

OVERVIEW

“Demand quality, not just in the products you buy, but in the life of the person who made it.” 
– Orsola de Castro, activist, upcyclist, fashion designer and author

 

Dear PGC 2021 Participants,

It’s another holiday — you’ve earned it! Over the past 16 days, you’ve challenged yourself to reduce your footprint, discovered sustainable alternatives to the products you use daily, acknowledged the privileges you may have over others without access to healthy food, clean water, or green spaces in their neighborhoods, and committed to climate and social justice in multiple ways. You’ve opened your eyes to unfair working conditions that produce the food and clothing we consume every day. You’re stepping up to the challenge.

Today, take a breath. Practice self care. As you step into your role as a climate activist, remember that you cannot do it alone. So rest today, because tomorrow we will be back in your inbox with more of PGC!

With gratitude,
The Turning Green Team
