Nonviolent Spending




There is enough for all.

The earth is a generous mother;

she will provide in plentiful abundance
food
for all her children
if they will but cultivate her soil
in justice and in peace.

Caring Consumer Wallet Card

1. Is this a want or need?

2. Will having this add meaning to my life?

3. Is this purchase the best way to care for myself and the planet?

4. What is the true cost of the item to: My own health? Other species? The environment? Other cultures?

5. Is there something more worthwhile I could do with my money?

I love the questions here, Lisa. And the photo as well. Is that taken in your house???

Also - how did the vegan support group meeting go?

Hey Lisa! Just found you here and am so glad that I did. Surrounded by so much STUFF that seems to inevitably accompany a new baby (funny, that, since she didn't seem to be carrying much of anything when she arrived!), I am so striving for this level of consciousness. Thank you!
