J.E.E. general meeting report
J.E.E. general meeting was held at J.E.E. office on Feb.
We discussed this year's activity; we'll continue all of our usual
activities, and this year J.E.E. eco-calendar will have the
20th anniversary of its publication.
After the report, Yuko Makino gave us a talk. She introduced her way of slow life; the way of taking a bath, washing clothes without soap. How to make aprons using old shirts, hand-knitted skirt (she calls this 'zabuton skirt') using used knitting wool, caps & gloves using old sweater's sleeves and so on. We all got impressed at her unique ideas for the sustainable life.
Then she introduced her way of health-care and gave a demonstration of the massage. The attendants asked her the questions on it, also we exchanged the ideas of our own eco-life styles each other.
The enjoyable time flies so fast. Although the meeting
finished at 4:30pm, but some people continued having a
lovely talk till around 6:00pm.
