“Speed is irrelevant if you are going in the wrong direction.” – M. Gandhi

Single Use Plastics are an incredible source of waste in our society.  Plastic sandwich bags, shopping bags, bottles, clips…the list could go on and on.  Many New Yorkers have tried to get rid of single use plastics in their lives, either by using a different product (like a re-usable shopping bag) or by re-using something that was only meant for one use.  Mr. Latimer has taken this to a new level with his well worn Metrocard!  Ask him to show it to you if you see him in the hallway.   He explains his philosophy about using things well here.

“When I was a child, it was the bane of my existence to be dragged all over New England by my parents, looking at “old junk.”  Over the years, however, it taught me to appreciate anything that was useful and well crafted. I hope to become a useful antique some day.”
