The word ‘sustainable’ should not be a ‘buzz’ word, it should be the ‘norm’ – it is time to embrace the beauty
of our planet and to understand how to protect it, cultivate it, and respect it. This may occur in many forms and

experimentation and development towards a sustained way of living while still allowing expression of individuality and style.
I thank you for your time and passion towards this global paradigm shift. Cheers.
