Dear Mother Earth,
I swear to make better use of local purveyors, starting with the new Good Food Market, where local items like Bell & Evans chickens and Di Bruno Brothers cheese await, along with prepared foods from an in-house chef.
I promise to be more like designer Mike Iannone, whose furnishings are ecofriendly, locally sourced, and made from reclaimed materials. I will cut out the importer and browse Iannone Design’s Kensington showroom for a new chest of drawers.
I attest that the only bottled water I buy will be from White Dog Cafe’s new in-house filtering system. It comes still or bubbly in cute, reusable glass liters with porcelain stoppers.
I guarantee that I will wear Bus Stop boutique’s new boots by Terra Plana, with accents from repurposed Pakistani quilts and low-impact materials. With fall’s little ankle booties, I assure you I’ll make earth shoes fashionable.
Now you have my word.
