Happy Saturday, everyone. It’s been a fairly good week in sustainability news. And by that I mean that no additional catastrophes (at least not that I heard of) joined the more or less Hollywood-esque summer we’ve been “enjoying.”
Along those lines, here’s a great article about how to lower your movie theater and popcorn budget this summer; just turn on the news.
Alright, sorry… /end cynicism.
Last week I wrote a bit about writing a new, more epic story for your life. This family did just that. They set a goal, they started working towards it, and they reached their goal two years before they had hoped to. For those skeptics out there, it is possible and people are doing it. Check out Family of Four Grows Their Food in a Swimming Pool.
After Copenhagen there was a lot of discussion about addressing climate change on a local or regional level. But maybe what we need to be doing in the wake of the failure of federal climate change policy is celebrating the EPA.
Getting even smaller, this week I concluded that I don’t have to do all of it. But because we definitely want to do some of it ourselves, check out Sustainable Eats’ Simple Lives Thursday blog hop for a ton of great thoughts, ideas, recipes and discussions about living more sustainably on an individual level. And oh… the recipes. Yum.
And finally, I can’t believe it’s almost September. I didn’t participate in One Small Change in July and August, but I’m pondering what I want to do for September. One idea I had was having a No Plastic month, but I haven’t made up my mind yet. Are you signing up for the next One Small Change challenge?
Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!
