In honor of earth day this past weekend, I wanted to share some of the ways our family is reducing our carbon footprint. It’s not easy, but a the same time, it’s also not that hard to make a few small changes that will grow and multiply into a lasting impact.
I’m no expert and certainly not perfect. However, I recently read a new book called Sustainability Made Simple, and it’s caused a huge shift in my thinking. It’s also opened my eyes to the consequences of many of our everyday choices. According to the authors, Rosaly Byrd and Laurèn Demates, using and purchasing less along with supporting companies that are more environmentally responsible should be our most important focus.
