Live in harmony
Living in more sustainable harmony with the earth became a passion of mine early in 2019. Always an earth advocate, I never fully realized my own impact, in small and large ways, on the planet and people. Not sure what triggered it, I began to notice the behaviors in my life that created unnecessary garbage in the world or contributed to unsustainable practices like using single use plastic utensils, single use water bottles, plastic bags, buying fast, cheap fashion from companies that have unethical labor standards, etc. This began a shift in my everyday purchases and choices that continues to evolve to this day.
When we take care of our own “backyard,” the world is a better place. We all know this to be true!
Below is the beginning of a list of ways I’ve started to live more sustainably, using less plastic and products that are more earth and people friendly.
If we live for ourselves only, our lives are bereft of true legacy. But when we live in the presence of our ancestors, we also live for our descendants. To feel concern for the future is to bring a piece of eternity into the present and let it guide us.

A healthier, happier world
Ways to go Less Waste:
Composting at home all natural, organic products to become soil for the earth!
Eating the food that we buy, instead of throwing it away!
Carpooling, walking more and riding our bicycles to go places.
Soap nuts: naturally occurring nuts in nature that act as detergent for washing clothes and are biodegradable.
