Smart Green Consumerism is not about throwing away all your incandescent lightbulbs and replacing them with CFLs or LED bulbs; it’s not about going out and buying that rainforest-friendly, eco-aware hemp t-shirt.

It’s about buying smarter. Buying smarter is – in a lot of cases – about not buying at all. However it is defined in the details, Precycling beats recycling, anyday.

Not generating the waste in the first place is going to be more efficient and effective than creating the waste and doing something to reclaim or recycle as much of it as possible, after the fact.

As half of the team behind 101projects101days.com, I am a serial starter of things, beginner of projects. I work in bits and in bytes, in words and paragraphs; I work in wood, metal, and paper, in fabric and in leather; I work in fits and in starts. Most of all I work intermittently and inconsistently.
