Less is Mo­ral

The Walrus - - LETTERS -

Tina Kneze­vic’s ar­ti­cle on the en­vi­ron­men­tal threat posed by mi­crofi­bres from syn­thetic cloth­ing (“Dirty Laun­dry,” April) of­fers two com­pelling sug­ges­tions: to pur­chase fewer gar­ments and to laun­der them less of­ten. It strikes me that this sort of so­lu­tion has a gen­eral ap­pli­ca­tion. Those of us who are com­fort­ably well off would likely ben­e­fit from a more mod­est life­style— whether that means driv­ing less, eat­ing less meat, or buy­ing less stuff.
