OUR "PLANET PROTECTIVE" PROJECTS
MADE POSSIBLE WITH YOUR Guitar & Accessory PURCHASES
(NEW) FAQ & Information pages
After the past few years developing positive projects to help "Earth & Mind" I figured I should create this page and really focus attention to some of the areas I am supporting.
Richards Guitars is a business committed to using the sale of guitars and related products to raise awareness and to actively support green and sustainable projects.
These pages help show how a mindful thought and a simple action of one person can create a ripple effect - the consequences of which can make real change.
I am sure my efforts are not even a drop in the ocean but, we all know the ocean is made of droplets just like mine and without them, we know there would be no ocean at all!
Everything you see around you - beyond natures own natural creations - came from a single thought. Someone - somewhere - thought of something - that has resulted in what you see before you. For better or for worse. Take a moment to think about that! Crazy! Powerful too.
With every thought that passes our mind - we have the opportunity to use it for a positive action or negative. If our actions are visualized as a pebble you drop from your hand into water - the consequences of your action are the ripples you see spreading out - one action and the consequence of that action - driving the next. All you need to do is drop the pebble. That pebble is POWERFUL! So respect what you have in your hand. We have seen through mankinds existence - when so many individual negative actions are performed by so many, without conscious thought or care, the sheer volume of events become overwhelmingly negative and hard for the Earth to re-balance
Here is my simple "workflow" for one possible way to drop that pebble of opportunity - Just by shopping for a guitar :)
Thousands of customers have done it before - and if you are one you already know but it goes something like this..
Your Action: You help me
You buy a guitar and or accessories
Triggers My Reaction: I help you
Read my about us to understand more about our unique service and 28 year history in the industry - but rest assured you could not be in safer hands. Every customer is treated like I would my best friend - your experience and happiness is our #1 priority - but I am also using my business to enable US to work together in a positively impactful way on the planet,.
Triggers the consequence: We both help the planet!
This page will explain in more detail about the different projects we are working with and how your purchase gives you the opportunity to be directly involved.
Together - we are but one droplet in the ocean of positive change - but needless to say there are millions of us now - creating positive droplets - to rebalance the negative ones before us.
Please remember - I am talking TINY TINY amounts of effort. Really I am just talking about mindful thought - triggering positive rather than negative consequences.
A project I have never actually materialized but desperately want to - one day - works on the most incredibly simple concept of "What IF... every day - every person - picked up one piece of rubbish" It really is hard to get your head around just how impactful that would be on the entire planet - our society.... I think I am rambling.... get back on track Richard!!!
I just though of a Michael Jackson song - Imagine how easy it would be for all of us to "make that change" (I was a massive Michael Jackson fan as a teenager, and Man In The Mirror is one of the most poignant songs for me that he ever sang) - If just by doing our shopping - we could be supporting projects that are already in place for us? The groundwork is already in place - as was the groundwork in place for me by the work someone else did before me - right? Of course I couldnt set up the projects I am talking to you about - but I CAN sell guitars - and if by selling guitars - doing what I do every day - but mindfully - I CAN make a change - The ripple effect!!
Obviously its not THAT easy - and I am over simplifying - but all I am saying is your actions do not have to be dramatic - just mindful - thought through. Small changes - even if its in how you think of who you support when you are shopping - are possible and they have a massive impact once the ripples start spreading.
So - lets "make that change - ow! HeHee!!!
(thats My MJ Impression btw)
