Be the change you want to see in the world

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.” Theodore Roosevelt

With annual Earth Day (http://www.earthday.org) being celebrated internationally on 22 April, this month why not show your commitment to giving our planet some much-needed TLC by supporting one the many markets around South Africa that offer locally-produced (i.e. low air-milage, smaller carbon-footprint), organic (i.e. no nasty chemicals etc), handcrafted (i.e. no mass-produced), socially and environmentally conscious products & services?
