A little awareness that’s all…

I want to take a moment to share with you a few easy ways you can be proactive about saving our planet. It feels good to take action in the direction of making this world a better place, and it really is not that hard! You start with something small, you make that a habit, then you add another, and so it goes. Before you know it you’ll be leading a wholesome, aware, planet friendly lifestyle… and what is that exactly? a way of living that aligns with the planet and it’s rhythms, a way of living that minimizes waste, pollution and disconnection, a way of living that gives back and is part of a cycle. Here are some of the things I have been practicing for the past year, and it’s thanks to two
