Why Reverence for Life (RfL)?
I have been influenced by ethics and the “green movement” throughout my life and career. Even though it is seemingly everywhere, it is still not being put into practice enough. I feel that we need to see past the current consumerism trends. Even though I often succumb, it is not through stuff that we are happy.
The philosophy of “Reverence for Life” encompasses everything that I think we should keep closest to us. It’s a wonderful reference point by which to judge our choices.
