#126: Eco Broom

A cleaning supply salesman holding on to a tiny hand duster gesturing overwhelmingly explains to a witch, "This is our eco-model: it uses 95% less wood and straw!" The background shows brooms under a "Classics" sign with a 50% off sticker, and vacuums sit under a "Latest Models" sign. Two little red eyes peer out of a  dark mouse hole among the brooms.

The Story Behind Eco Broom

Illustrated by EEK.

We need to take care of our planet. It’s literally the only one we’ve got (until we colonize TOI 700 d) . But right now we live in a time where convenience and sustainability are crazy far apart. I make a genuine effort to buy green products and drive a car that won’t doom our species. Sustainability is even one of taleas’ three core principles. However, the market has yet to make a lot of these planet-friendly products accessible and affordable. I would gladly buy a battery-powered or - better yet - bio-algae powered car, but they’ll still be delivered on the flatbed of a diesel-powered truck. Going green is still quite expensive and, sadly, not every industry is doing it. None of this is to say that I don’t have a strong desire to help the planet, I definitely do. I live here after all. But I am eager for a day when all classes and societal levels can buy green products, not just those at the top.
