My colleague Maira made a bag out of an old shirt and that got me thinking............
Maybe that could be a benefit to the recession. If we all renewed our old items then we could use our money for more important things. Such as bills or other things that you NEED.
Maira WANTED a bag, she didn’t NEED it. So she did what she had to so that she could have the bag that she wanted. Doing that she also got rid of an old shirt. Maira looked at her shirt as an opportunity for something that would help.
“I looked at it as a way to reuse my old shirt,” Maira said.
Imagine what the world was like if we didn’t look at old things as
trash. We looked at them as an opportunity for something else, something better. What if we were all like Maira.
There are plenty of things we can do to help out. Like giving things to the salvation army or using them for something else. This would help our economy becausewe would then have more money for the things we need.
Once all of our debt is paid off. We can use our money for things to help our environment like solar panels.
Some may say I’m out of my mind for thinking such a small thing could help on such a large scale, but it’s the truth. If everyone contributed this world would be so much better and in the end we all can say.
It started with and old shirt.
