Today, as part of my aim to improve myself in 2009, I took The Handmade Pledge.
The pledge is to buy handmade for myself and my loved ones, and request that others do the same for me.
Its all about getting away from mass production and the environmental effects that mass production has on our world. But it is also about people. Global manufacturing has left us all dressing, furnishing and decorating alike. When we buy handmade we reconnect with real people and start to be more individual. And from what I’ve found on etsy so far, who wouldn’t want a handmade gift?
