In 2019 I resolved to drastically reduce my waste–garbage and recycling. I first wrote about it in a blog post in March, three months into the year. Since it’s now June, I figured it’s time for another quarterly update!
This is a blog post I’ve been itching to write for a long time. I keep drafting it in my head, and then deadlines and everyday life get in the way. Oh, #momlife!
My 2019 New Year’s Resolution was to become more eco-friendly. The funny thing is that I used to be much better at this. When I was a teenager, and during my undergrad years at university, I was a hippie! Anyone who knew me during that time would attest to it: I brought my own container to restaurants for leftovers, I wore hemp clothing, and I worked at a health food store (a store that I still love and frequent).
What happened to that hippie girl? I’m not sure, to be honest. She never truly went away, but she stepped aside for a while while I took on an office job, planned a wedding, went back to school, and had a baby. Although I always prioritized natural products, I fell into the convenience trap. But now I feel like that side of me is back, full-force, and full of excitement.
