I am not quite sure where I sit on the spectrum of ‘green-ness’, but I suspect it’s closer to toxic swamp than pristine rainforest.
While I have always acknowledged the need to reduce, re-use and recycle, my efforts have been pretty pedestrian. When the going has gotten tough, it has been easier to ‘buy it new or ‘throw it out’, rather than ‘deal with it’ responsibly.
So, why the sudden crisis of conscience?
There is no short answer to this question. The change of heart has been a long time coming. I have been inspired by so many great ideas, blogs, individuals, progressive companies, provoking reads, podcasts and documentaries that it feels almost irresponsible to do nothing. As I can not ‘unsee’ what I’ve seen, I can no longer claim ignorance.
The purpose of this blog is to document my journey into greener territory, one little habit at a time. The successes, the failures and everything in-between. I am hoping that, at the very least, I can progress along the spectrum into greener territory!
Vert I go! Gradually…
