It’s Earth Day on 22 April. I thought I’d share this great post from Kathleen Cubley of Knitting Daily about green knitting here. I like the idea of making yarn from a piece of clothing that’s no longer wearable/wanted.
As for me, I shall commemorate the day by knitting a hat with this:
I don’t have anything I want to cut up just right now.
It will be a joyful reminder of my responsibilities as one of Earth’s guardians when I wear it.
Of course, there are more serious ways to make an Earth-friendly statement:
- plant a tree
- take public transport
- eat a vegetarian meal
- conserve water
- use less electricity
- change to eco-friendly cleaning and laundry products
- begin recycling, if you don’t already.
I’d love to hear what you are planning to do.
