Fenway Honu from Sacramento sent us this message:
“Some of the things I do to unfuck the world are: When I mow the lawn I use a push mower that uses no gas or electricity, just human power.
I grow my own vegetables, raise chickens for eggs using their crushed eggshells for the soil and I compost.
I plan my days out so there is minimal carbon output; when out on errands I park in one place and walk to the stores, ride bikes whenever possible over using the car.
I recycle, always use reusable bags when shopping, pick up trash on daily walks with my dog, buy items with less packaging, always use a reusable bottle for water, cut up paper if it’s blank on one side and use it as note paper.
We turn off lights in rooms not in use, never keep water running when brushing teeth or lathering up in the shower, or washing dishes, and we installed low pressure shower heads.
We never eat fast food or support those types of businesses; I cook homemade meals everyday and teach my kids to do the same.”
We love this message; Fenway is setting a great example! If everybody would take a lot of these simple actions, it would be a great step towards making this world a better place!
Quotes from UTW supporters on what Unfuck The World means to them …
Anton Mueller: “Unfuck The World is part of the (slowly) growing movement for systemic and holistic change in how humans interact with each other and the world. It’s not angry, it’s not political. It is above these things. To me, it attempts to say (firmly, but calmly), ‘fuck politics, fuck theology, you can keep these dividers, we know the only way forward is together.”
Kelsie Willoughby: “To unfuck the world means to lose the selfish ‘every man for himself’ mentality the world has adopted. Stop saying ‘fuck the world’ and ‘fuck it’. Everyone on their own initiative go out on a daily basis and do something selfless and unconditional for their fellow human beings. It starts with each person. Smile at people in public. Acknowledge those with less than you and share what you have. Help someone if you see they need it. Compliment strangers. Go buy that old bum a cheeseburger and a beer… lol. People tell me I’m too nice all the time. ”Why did you do that, you don’t even know them” or “Well, I wouldn’t have done that, you are too nice”. I think it’s time for everyone to pay a little love forward, to unfuck the world. Kindness inspires kindness.”
