Saving Our Earth One Tiny Step At A Time

Those who know me well, also know that I am a greenie at heart.  Perhaps even a borderline hippy.  That said, I have so many opinions about being earth friendly.  Recently I have met a wonderful woman online, she owns and operates an earth savvy online store, The Earth Friendly Shoppe.  Fabulous!  Well, I was asked to do a little interview and now you can find my pithy (or not so pithy depending on the viewpoint) words featured on the Earth Mama Love page.  Go. Look. Read. Now. 🙂

 

On that note, I have decided to offer an earth friendly tip each day on my post.  That is my goal… hopefully someone will hold me to it!

 

Today’s advice- Instead of focusing on buying MORE earth friendly products, focus on buying less in general.  Today’s marketing wants us to all run to their store and buy, buy, buy all these “earth friendly” products. Reducing consumerism is really a great step toward becoming a more conscious society.  That doesn’t mean you should keep buying chemical laden cleaning products and preservative filled foods, just give a good hard look at what you do buy.  Find something(s) you can give up or reduce your purchase of.  We read of families who give up buying everything except necessities… if you want to give that a go, more the power to ya.  However, it doesn’t take extreme measures to make an impact.
