Basket is an Auckland based print publication and online space created by Melissa McFadzien.
The Basket project stemmed from my own mission to become a more conscious and mindful consumer, and the overwhelming plethora of things I then found myself needing to consider. So I began thinking, what is a simple and enjoyable action we can take, that is a step towards more ethical and sustainable consumption? Well, we can at least give some thought to where the things we wear, use and eat are coming from. The easiest way to know this for sure? Choose things being made by people like us, right here in Auckland. A small and simple step in the right direction, but a step none the less.
The publication contains many more images and extra information, and will be displayed at the Set in Motion exhibition from the 11th to the 16th of November, or by arrangement with Melissa at firstname.lastname@example.org.
