We here at DAWN 11:11 care about our environmental footprint, global warming, fuzzy little kitties, and all sorts of things. But then again we piss in the streets, and use aerosol paints so we claim no standards. We do our due diligence in daily life by composting, recycling, planting seeds, and allowing a flowing natural eco system in our yard for pollinators to preserve biodiversity. We also cut our own firewood from fallen trees after storms, downsize material possessions, and have lived in small spaces for many years. Not littering and caring for animals also goes without saying. Dave originally started recycling in 1991, in the dirt cinder block band practice space, underneath the square little pink house where his first punk band, Sap Green, rehearsed. A little extra recycling money went a long way back then. In addition, Kristen has been a vegetarian for most of her life, because meat tastes yucky to her. There was also an incident at McDonald's when she was very young and found a vein in her chicken nugget.. pretty much did it in for her on the meats. Dave was a vegetarian for several years until moving to Texas. With the temptation (he was a Catholic boy) of BBQ taunting him so much, he gave in to eating meat again.
