The Space We Are In!

Life is fickle! It takes many twists and turns. Just as we are sitting in the driver's seat, settling in for the ride it can take a right hand turn, throw a U turn or come to a grinding halt.  How we deal with these life changes begins with our childhood. Our resilience, our ability to cope, our problem solving skills are set down in our formative years and whether we like it or not, our childhood experiences map our reactions in our future years.  Each generation has worked hard to provide their children with a 'better' life than the generation before. Does this guarantee our children a life free from disappointment, free from broken love, free from setbacks?  Unfortunately NO! Their ability to adapt, to change and to accept, determines the outcome.

Today, life is more comfortable than it has ever been for past generations and just as we settled in for a life of comfort and opulence along came the global financial crisis and climate change.  Our time of being a disposable society has to change.  The way we treat the resources of this precious planet also has to change.  That is why at WinC Wrap in Cotton, we believe that by wrapping our gifts in cotton we are contributing to the sustainability of the planet.  We not only save countless trees and fossil fuel, we also save carbon pollution as a result of paper that is discarded into land fill. Wrapping in cotton is a win for everyone - It creates exquisite gifts that can be created again and again and again as the gift wrap is paid forward and, it creates a sustainable future for the planet. Adapt to a new way of giving gifts - Wrap in Cotton!

What are your choices?  Whom are your choices for? Not just for yourself.  Chose now whom you will serve, and that choice is going to affect the next generation, and the next generation, and the next. Choice never affects just one person alone.  It goes on and on and the effect goes out into geography and history.  You are part of history and your choices become part of history.
