Monday's Mending Pile

I'm so impressed with Sweden right now. I've never been there, maybe one day. It sounds like such a progressive and cool place to visit.

Sweden is looking at giving tax breaks to those who embrace the "make do and mend" philosophy. Per Bolund, Sweden's Minister for Financial Markets and Consumer Affairs, states that their vision isn't necessarily about consuming less rather consuming better. Amen to that!  
There is an increased knowledge that we need to make our things last longer in order to reduce materials’ consumption. ~Per Bolund.  
It is about time. After decades of cheap clothing and goods being produced to fall apart at least there is someone seeing the devastating environmental impact this is having on the world.  

Happy Mending!
