Well, shit! Here goes my first blog post. Bear with me as I learn to drive this thing called WordPress and my numerous grammatical errors!
My real mission with this blog is to make switching to a greener lifestyle something that is more sustainable, achievable, and less stressful to the average person or family. I believe that all (unless you totally suck) people want to do better for the Earth, want to be more sustainable, and want to do it NOW. I think we have been led to believe that this is arduous, expensive, ineffective, and just plain hard to achieve. I want to dispel those notions and show how easy, rewarding, and effective these greener alternatives can be. I plan on breaking this down into small easy steps accompanied by short video tutorials or examples if they are needed.
This is a journey of progress, not perfection! Every *little* bit counts, and every *little* change magnified by the number of people who make it snowballs into a huge difference for our planet. I am by no means an authority. I have no special degrees, and I don’t claim to be zero waste. I am still learning and have a ways to go to be where I would like to be on this journey, but I do know that I am trying and have already come further than I would have thought possible when I decided to first start making changes back in October of 2018.
In addition to my more eco-centric posts, I will also be sharing general lifestyle stuff such as vegetarian and vegan recipes that my family enjoy, and hopefully progress photos and posts from the permaculture garden my husband and I intend to break ground on this year. I am looking forward to sharing the journey with you. Now, let’s GET FREAKING GREEN!
