editor-in-chief’s letter

ISSUE 36 SUMMER 2017 I have an uncomfortable confession to make. I’ve recently realised in my bid to support as many ‘good things’ as possible by buying lots of good things, the end result is that now I have far too many things. Lots of great, well-intended, thoughtful things – and yes, I’ll get off my high horse and admit there are also lots of not-so-virtuous things – but still, so many things filling my house, my life, my head. So much so that I have been increasingly feeling the heaviness of it all, noticing how the abundance of often-unused things is not just gathering dust but draining my finances, stealing my time, inflating my footprint and – if I’m being completely, reluctantly honest – highlighting my rampant consumerism, despite the origin…

maker spotlight: julie lee sye of little loom

What first got you into weaving? A couple of months after our second child was born in 2014, I realised that I had post-natal depression – and I needed to find something I could do that would help me feel more connected to myself. A friend picked up a small weaving kit for me and I loved it. For me, weaving and knotting is a very meditative and peaceful process; when I’m feeling anxious, it calms me.

I might see something that sparks an idea and then I have to try to bring it to life. I love looking through secondhand shops and finding things that I can weave…

changemaker: kate nelson plastic-free mermaid

Tell us about your work... I am a surfer, yogi, ocean conservationist, environmental activist, holistic lifestyle coach, free diver, sailor and sparkly mermaid, and I teach people to quit plastic. I aim to gracefully remind folks of our connection to nature, humbly guide them away from synthetics and enthusiastically share the skills, tips and recipes that have enriched my life since I gave up plastics. What got you started? I volunteered for a few ocean non-profits in California during college, including Jean-Michel Cousteau’s Ocean Future Society, where I learned that plastic does not biodegrade and that much of it is collecting in the oceans – creating areas that are so saturated with plastic waste nothing can survive! I felt of all the issues impacting our environment, I could 100% control the amount of…
