Becoming Sustainable & Living Simply happens:
when money stays local it creates jobs, and keeps money local – so seek local options instead of chains & big box stores.
when one recycles, reduces (best practice), repairs and reuses its own items and is also open to buying new and underused items previously owned by others.
when we Reduce the energy used by seeking transportation options like bus, bike, car share, EV vehicles and rideshare. At home: turn out lights, unplug tech when not in use, minimize HVAC use and look into energy efficiency and alternatives like solar.
when we Eat healthier and grow a local food system that support local farmers and community gardens.
when we are all responsible citizens of this earth and country by voting regularly, learning about social and environmental justice issues, and be mindful and practice compassion.
