Take One Earth Conscious Step At A Time.
Your earth-loving choices and changes don't have to be hard to make, they don't have to be huge and they don't have to completely and instantly change your way of life.
To avoid the overwhelming pressure of 'saving the world' I feel it comes down to embracing simple and just…'You do you', because it's the only thing we know how.
From the all-in "I'm going completely plastic-free today, forever!" style of approach to the slower, one-step-at-a-time approach, just go with what feels good for you and right for you.
A soft, gradual approach is just as wonderful and to be honest probably more sustainable. It's not about going head on into a new fad, it's about creating a new sustainable way of life – forever, not just for today.
Maybe you're drawn to Becoming A Shopper For Mama Earth or creating Your Kitchen of Earthy Goodness or Your Eco Laundry or Your Earthy Bathroom Oasis, or maybe you're wanting to Get Earthed On The Go or nourish Your Body of An Earthess - I have broken down the earthy tips I live by into little drop down compartments to help not overwhelm and confuse you and to help you hone into the area/s of your life that are calling on you for some green love.
Because we don't want to scare sceptics, we don't want to scare those who feel they don’t have the time or those who find it all too overwhelming. It's all about showing people the way of becoming more aligned with and in touch with our natural world.
My first step was quitting single-use plastic water bottles and plastic bags, yours might be different and that is absolutely ok!
Then it moved to eliminating cling wrap and foil by switching to locally produced beeswax wraps (added bonus of supporting local!), then taking my own coffee cup and my own bowl for my favourite acai! Recently it's shifted to making my own plastic-free, animal loving, nasty chemical-free body scrubs and oils, toothpaste and hair treatments all from home!
Once you begin looking beyond what is now considered a normal, environmentally destructive way of living and begin altering your patterns, a wonderful snowball effect will be ignited, opening you up to an exciting and empowering community of minds in tune with Mama Earth.
And I promise you, awakening your Earth conscious life is a pretty awesome feeling!
