They say “if you want to see a change in the world, you have to start from yourself”. So, we did. In the Gravina of Puglia with only the necessities, we have created a new world based on the necessities of our environment. “We are the seeds of sustainability” was our motto and we reached our goal to be a part of the earth.
The days have passed easily and creatively. Workshops, discussions, brainstorming and a lot of smiles. Thanks to our coordinators, Noa and Rossana, we have learnt how to make a wallet from TETRA pack, how to make a toothpaste from eco-friendly products and of course we learnt how to calculate our eco footprint.
But , besides these, “we” as a group we understood how easy is to live sustainable. You don’t need much to be happy and make the others happy. Unfortunately, in nowadays, we have been brainwashed by the rapid routine that they promote us and we can’t get over it. However, Gravina was our chance to understood that there is life without the social media, there is life without expensive clothes and there is a life outside the box. There is life where you let the nature to do all the work for you. Because nature is unstoppable and superpower. It will not hurt you, if you don’t hurt it. Leave it genuine as the God made it and don’t try to disturb its work.
Everyday, we woke up enchanted by the beauty of nature which we have been trying to protect from the affliction and stupidity of humanity. So, please my lovely readers don't leave this post and take nothing from it. Try to reduce the plastic in your life, use the public transport or your foot instead of your car, don't let the water running from your tap and live your life with more consciousness for you planet. JUST LIVE SUSTAINABLE.
