I tend to think of the "stewardship" that took it from SPICE to SPICES as just more of simplicity. I agree that not everybody is looking at radical change in this area, but I'd say that's true of the other testimonies as well. Some people are in a position where they're ready for change in one testimony or other, but maybe not in all of them at once. 

I'm thinking of Maggie & Jon's admonishment to "get naked" now.

Hey, I'm poor as a church mouse, overwhelmed with medical bills, and I ride the city buses with my Disability Service Dog and have been a recycling fanatic for YEARS.  I raised my kids on "The Three Rs."  They're both recycling fiends now that they are adults.  I think it's just a sensible and responsible way to live.  (You should see the clothing I make out of cool printed sheets I find at thrift stores!  ;-)   )

Agreed. Thanks.

I'm thinking of having a retail hangover. I had a fairly gentle holiday season, but still spent more than I think I wanted to, and I'm well aware of the WASTE. So... what if I tried retail abstinence? Nice idea. Only buy groceries, fuel, and the consumibles (cat litter, medicines, etc) in January. That would mean, perhaps, deferring retail needs a bit. It would certainly mean prohibiting impulse purchases. I wonder what impact this would have on our family's garbage output? Energy output?

Quakers at Copenhagen: The Morning After. 'We agreed it was important to have a stronger Quaker presence in the overall climate change process. We also agreed that one's first COP [Conference of the Parties] was very much a learning experience - trial by fire. Much needs to be done to make this better/more effective for future Quakers at COPs.' Posted by Johan Maurer
