New Book Teaches You How to Make It Last
Make It Last: Prolonging and Preserving What We Love bridges the gap between life in a disposable culture and the basic skills needed to save money and live more sustainably.
Portland (I-Newswire) September 13, 2012 - Make It Last: Prolonging and Preserving What We Love bridges the gap between life in a disposable culture and the basic skills needed to save money and live more sustainably. This book teaches the reader how to extend the lives of the things they love by repairing clothing, preserving home-grown food, and even repairing your kitchen sink.
Raleigh Briggs takes her longtime commitment to community building through the DIY movement and shares her valuable experience with the reader through a conversational tone in her hand drawn and illustrated guide.
"People are starting to realize not only that they can do this stuff, but that it's fun and fulfilling to boot." says Briggs. "Whenever you think about the choices you're making, you're doing a good thing."
As Verbicide Magazine described it as “a Gideon Bible-like manual that should be heavily circulated to people who are just scraping by in life. Her pragmatic approach to taking back your home is what makes this book so appealing.”
Make It Last is the sequel to Briggs’ best-selling book Make Your Place: Affordable, Sustainable Nesting Skills, which acts as a pocket-sized reference guide to living a sustainable domestic life outside of consumer consciousness. An essential tool to anyone looking to live a more DIY lifestyle and a perfect companion to Briggs’ newest release.
The Utne Reader described Make It Last as “A forceful antidote to the cheapening of thrift culture: a meticulously hand-lettered, pint-size volume. When you raise your fist against the values that derailed our economy, lift this book in it.”
Now you can save money and save the planet while saving your prized possessions.
