We are exploring how people think about their daily environmental footprint in a new interview series called: Low Impact Life
For our first installment, we tapped into the brain of local hero Abe of Fancy Lad Skate Co. We wanted to have a chat about how habits add up - what we got was so much more:
1. What’s something you always carry on your person?
A paper bag filled with peels and cores of fruit so i can compost it but I usually throw it in a flower arrangement of some corporate building downtown so the flowers can get the nutrition.
2. What’s something you hate throwing away?
Anything really. That’s why my room is filled with random tchotchkes. I really throw away almost nothing. The only thing I throw away is baggy socks.
3. Whats your biggest concern about our environment?
The ecological collapse where we all get burned by the sun. Ice caps melting. Running out of food. All of these things I think about everyday.
4. What’s your worst environmental bad habit, something you’d like to work harder on?
I don’t know if this counts but I’m obsessed with showering. I shower like twice a day. I think it goes back into the water cycle, I hope it does. Honestly I also feel guilty about charging so many things on a daily basis, continuing the burning of coal and all. Maybe also spray paint.
Fancy Lad just dropped their newest masterpiece Fancy Lad 3 and it’s one for the ages. Be sure to check out their skate videos for people who don’t like skate videos and follow ‘em on Instagram: @fancyladskateco
