Got back in from hiking the West Coast Trail – what a truly epic adventure! – and was doing some reading now that I have an internet connection again. I found this truly interesting post by Lance Hosey on Design Observer, especially interesting after just spending an entire week with my life in a 26 lb pack on my back – no phone, no computer, nothing but sun and rain and waves and forest. I think Hosey makes some pointed observations about the impact that design has on our everyday lives and our footprint for consumption. The article is lengthy, but touches on a lot of aspects of sustainability and what that really means and looks like – it’s well worth the read. Let me know what you think!
P.S. Another post on the WCT with pics to follow soon!
