Today, Friday, the 30th of March at 8:33 am (Australian Time) I finally took the Handmade Pledge.
I have been thinking about taking the pledge for a while now, but I guess I have never really gotten around to making the commitment.
So here and now I say to the world that:
I pledge to consider handmade alternatives for all of my purchases, whether they are for everyday items or gifts, for myself, my family or my friends.
I also add as an extention of this pledge that where handmade may not be an option, I pledge to consider the second-hand alternative.
Have you taken, or are thinking of taking, the Handmade Pledge?
