    For a year I've been moving towards a non-toxic life but the last 4 months have zero-ed in on sustainability. It's really eye opening seeing photos, videos, and statistics of the harm we are causing to this earth. I try to live reduced waste and be intentional with what I make, and buy. It's been a real passion for me and I'm so happy to be a part of a challenge. I hope all of those participating are having fun and learning something new. Remember, we don't need a handful of people doing reduced waste perfectly, we need millions doing it imperfectly. :D

    The documentary I've been watching is "One Strange Rock" which explains the interworking between all of our ecosystems and space. Quite compelling.

    If you are a lover of nature and want to feel inspired go to Phipps Botanical Gardens. They have a team on here and always doing their part in being actively sustainable. My profile picture is me at Phipps. For approximately three years it has been a very special place in my heart. Every show is lovely.
