We Are From The Earth (WAFTE) is on a mission to elevate human consciousness in four unique realms: happiness and compassion, sustainability and consumption, business and consciousness, and cause and activism.
Happiness and Compassion
There is beauty in treating yourself and others with a kindness and empathy of heart. This sentiment applies not only to the humans you interact with, but also to your relationships with the environment and all forms of life on Earth. At WAFTE, we believe that when there is compassion in your thoughts, it translates to your actions and then ripples out into the world to create dynamic positive change. These thoughts can include:
Compassion and spirituality
Imagination & Creativity
Relationships (Romantic, Family, & Friend)
Mission & Career
Sustainability and Consumption
In our age of dramatic consumerism, we encourage you to make the socially conscious decisions that can mitigate the harm we do to the planet. Be mindful of the little things- the food you eat, the clothes you wear, the plastic you use, the number of things that go into the bin, where they end up, and the toll that takes on the ecosystem. We acknowledge that the task can seem a little daunting, so we say start small! Reuse. Recycle. Invest in small businesses that are eco-conscious. Eventually, if you’re feeling more confident, try slowly investigating your consumption in each of the following arenas, and ask yourself- Am I being socially conscious in this area of my life?
Food & Drinks
Bank & Investment
Housing (Houses, Furniture, & Furnishings)
Business and Consciousness
This is the part that most of us spend a lot of our time and energy on- our work. It is an intrinsic part of our lives- the thing that gives us shelter, food, stability, and for some, even a sense of purpose. Most of us spend 1/3 of our daily lives at work, in a largely profit-driven economy. The prevalence of big industry and big money often leaves smaller communities and individuals vulnerable - creating power only for the few at the top. It’s time to equalize that curve. Take a look at the following dimensions of business and spend some time thinking about how to incorporate a great sense of consciousness in your workspace today!
Social Business Models
Cause and Activism
We are fortunate to live in a world today where most of us have access to resources such as the internet. However, with this privilege comes the responsibility to use our voices and have an impact. At WAFTE, we want to embrace our differences as a human race and come together to create a positive impact. We idealize world leaders like Malala Yousafzai and Martin Luther King Jr. and try to follow the example they have set for us. Any cause you are passionate about is a cause worth fighting for, so we encourage you to take the plunge. Here are some starting points:
Hunger & Poverty
Loss of Biodiversity
