Trying to live a sustainable life

Have you participated in plasticfree July? If so, how did it go?

I have to admit that I didn’t manage. July has been so tough for me personally being exhausted with kids at home and getting the news that we have mold and water damage in our bathroom and kids room and that we need to find somewhere else to live for about four months during rebuild.. that I didn’t have the energy for the challenge. And that’s ok too. Not putting that pressure on myself to be sustainable in every single area of every single day. Trying to live a sustainable life is as much about the inside as the outside. ⁣

Managing our physical and mental health, stress levels, belongings and consumption and being sustainable in all areas is not always an easy task. But I am human and I do what I can and that’s enough. Like prioritising the ability to raise super kind vegan humans that will grow up to save the world one day. And using sustainable and no poo products in the bathroom.

You may not think our efforts to reduce waste are making a difference. But if every single one of us reduced our waste by 50%, think about what a huge impact that would have!
