So as I have been spending a lot of time thinking about this lately and trying to "re-ground" myself. I wondered, what exactly is it I am trying to do here. So along came my "mission statement". It really helped me define what it is that is important to me here. In later posts I will talk more about what I am already doing and plan to do to help accomplish each thing on my list. So here it is:
MY MISSION IS TO REDUCE MY WASTE BY RE-USING AND REFURBISHING AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE AND ALSO BY LIMITING MY NEED FOR “THINGS” THAT I WON’T USE OR DON’T REALLY NEED. I ALSO PLAN TO EDUCATE OTHERS ABOUT REDUCING THEIR WASTE AS WELL AS MAKING MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY SOUND CHOICES THEMSELVES. I PLAN TO CONTINUE TO EDUCATE MYSELF ABOUT THE EFFECTS OF THE GROWING MEAT INDUSTRY TO BOTH OUR HEALTH AND OUR ENVIRONMENT. I WANT TO REDUCE MY MEAT INTAKE AND WHEN I DO EAT MEAT, EAT MEAT THAT HAS BEEN RAISED IN A HEALTHY WAY THAT IS BOTH BETTER FOR ME AND FOR THE ENVIRONMENT. I WANT TO REDUCE MY DEPENDENCY ON CHEMICALS LIKE ONES FOUND IN HOUSEHOLD CLEANERS, FERTILIZERS, PESTICIDES ETC… AND FIND ALTERNATIVES FOR THESE PRODUCTS THAT ARE BOTH EASY TO USE AND AFFORDABLE. MY HOPES FOR THE FUTURE IS TO BE ABLE TO BECOME A FOOD SAFETY ADVOCATE TO HELP CRACK DOWN ON THE FDA AND THEIR LOUSY FOOD “POLICING”. I HOPE TO CONTINUE TO SHARE THIS JOURNEY WITH MY FAMILY, FRIENDS AND ANYONE ELSE WHO WANTS TO HEAR ABOUT IT SO THANK YOU FOR READING.
