Bucharest is now a bustling city, whose legend is based on a rescue and a love story and its name can be translated as “The City of Joy”. Established on a swamp, several lakes and slow, sinuous rivers, it grew spontaneously, chaotic, naturally. Yet, surrounded by concrete, glass and steel, traffic and tall buildings, the heart of nature is beating undisturbed. YES ! We have a delta, an ecosystem recreated on an abandoned site. Hundreds of species of plans, insects, animals, 90 species of rare, protected birds are living among us. Nature knows what to do and as long as we don’t interfere, it can heal itself and flourish. Our city delta is here to remind us that we are part of a fragile but enduring system. And keeping nature in balance with technology is up to us. Technologies can be and must be clean.
We just have to return to that ancient wisdom, which states that it’s worthy to worship only those sources of energy that are never to end: sun, wind, waves and creativity.
And for us to never get distant, we keep these energies embroidered on our shirts.
Ecologist by profession, Maria can name how many benefits come from wearing long-lasting clothes. Durable, offering thermal comfort, they are clothes created to take care of us ! And they don’t require so much care. Less washing, less detergent, less ironing it means less impact on our resources and respect for water. Water is the source of life and must be protected, of we want life to continue on this planet. Let’s celebrate life with a glass of clean water !
