"By freeing ourselves from the thralldom of needless material consumption, we open the path for new, different, and more sustainable ways of interacting with nature. We may begin to remember that nature is not simply the material out of which we furnish goods to consume. Instead, it is what nurtures our existence and fills our lives with meaning. This, of course, means offering a palate for our creative labour. But is also means that nature can provide the opportunity for us to experience beauty, complexity, and all the wonders of life. In the end, nothing can make us more human."
