I started this blog as a labour of love after the birth of my daughter. I’d been a chef, an eco-tourism business owner, a food blogger and a business writer for years, but suddenly I realised that I was responsible for this beautiful little person – the best person I’ve ever met – and I needed to do something to help make the world a better place for her.
In the last year and a half we’ve become a pretty green family. We eat organic food (something we’ve always done), we use cloth diapers/nappies when we can, we have removed the toxins from our cleaning and toiletries cupboards and have improved our health and wellbeing to no end with the introduction of Young Living essential oils to our home. We are on our journey to becoming as much of a zero waste home as we can, we make lots of our own DIY personal care and cleaning products and in general we try to live as harmlessly as possible.
I’m not saying we are at the pinnacle of green living. There are other blogs who have achieved some level of perfection. We’re not one of those, but by sharing what we can here in what we’ve learned and how we’ve made our lives a bit kinder to the earth, I hope that you can start this step by step journey too! One change at a time is all it takes.
