December Newsletter: Sustainable Christmas time and Ney Year's Resolutions
Posted December 31st, 2012 - 8:21 am by from Vienna, Austria (Permalink)
Dear group,

on the last day of the year here comes the last newsletter of Sustainable Couch...for 2012 ;-)

21st Sustainable Wave-Letter, December 2012, Sustainable Christmas time and New Year's Resolutions

I allowed myself to write a Christmas tale I would like to share with you. I hope it is fun, i am not sure about the result though. However, here it is:

A Christmas tale by Massi

"In 2012 all the world, especially during Christmas time, seems to be under the rule of consumerism and social compulsion to buy as much as possible…all the world? well, not exactly, there is a small but growing community that continues to fight against the shopping-malls legions, with the help of a magic potion that gives them superhuman strength to resist to the temptation to buy. This potion is made by the community druids, wise sustainable people from all over the world. Mr. Capitalism, with his ally Santa Claus, tries to seduce the community with the "Collection 2012/2013 of yet another useless, disposable, polluting object", but its members heroically defend their principles of sustainability and solidarity. In the end, the whole community celebrates its victory with a fair-trade organic dinner and happily dance the night away, ready to continue the peaceful battle for a more sustainable world also in 2013"

Note from the author: I hope the Asterix' and Santa Claus' fans won't be offended by this story ;-)

I wish you all the best for 2013. After 15 months in South America I am back in Europe for a while, so I hope I can come and visit in Berlin in the next months.

ciao
massi
