Letter from the Editor: The “Sense” of Home and Garden
I was raised by “green” parents. Of course, they didn’t know they were environmentally conscious, and I’m positive they never gave a thought to saving the planet. They were just doing what came naturally to them and living life the best they knew how. If something broke around the house, my father fixed it. If a seam ripped or a button came off of our clothing, my mother repaired it. Every year they grew a garden and put up the harvest to enjoy all winter. Nothing was wasted or thrown away unless there was truly no way to repair or reuse it. When they did decide to buy something, it was of the highest quality they could afford because they knew it would need to last a long time. Except for a brief period of rebellion, I have mostly lived the same way. And, now I am fortunate enough to work for a company that believes it’s important to be careful with our resources. Sasee is published on recycled paper, as are other Strand Media publications. In the office we do small things like reuse file folders and think carefully about any expense we incur. It’s a satisfying way to live and work.
