This is no altruistic hippie ideal - this is a fair, equal and sustainable currency for everyone to use and benefit from...
Whatever shocking and depressing statistics you care to look at, they all point to the same truth: our present system of economics simply doesn't work anymore and it's time for something new that will sustain our people, our businesses, our well-being and our planet.
People who participate in The People's Currency make the choice to trade their goods and services for Action Pounds, not because they cannot afford to buy goods with cash, but because they want to be clever with their money, make more of their resources, feel good and avoid waste.
For me, using Action Pounds - The People's Currency is about empowered living. It is about smarter consumption, engaging in more meaningful ways and being part of a very positive solution.
I also want to dis-prove the massive and underlying assumption that money is necessary to survive - it just isn't the case! There are far more creative, more meaningful ways to abundance and value than money can ever buy.
I believe that the difference between us crashing as a humanity and civilisation, or collectively enjoying a rewarding, generous and bountiful life, very much depends on our willingness to wholeheartedly communicate, co-operate and collaborate in more creative ways - not limited to money."
I also bake, blog, exercise and host couchsurfers.
