Are you wanting to adopt a more sustainable lifestyle but not sure where to start?
Do you feel like it’s all a little bit too hard, too expensive or too hippie?
Welcome to greenwithme, your new go-to website for all things sustainable living, positive news updates and all-round earth-friendly goodness. We are committed to sharing valuable content on how YOU can reduce your personal footprint whilst continuing to enjoy more of the good stuff.
We all know that our way of life here on planet earth needs some changing, and whilst it seems daunting to consider sustainability at a global scale – on a personal level it becomes a lot more manageable. There are soooo many reasons and benefits for you to start to consider your own impact, but just to be sure we are on the same page, here are some short, fast facts:
- Focusing on the doom & gloom is out, and inspired action is in;
- Small changes, when multiplied by many, lead to BIG impacts;
- Embracing a sustainable lifestyle saves people money, increases their health and wellbeing, enhances the communities in which they are a part of and ultimately improves the state of the planet;
- Ignorance is out, and consciousness is in. It is cool to care. FACT; and
- Finally, and most importantly, YOU/ME/WE can make a difference.
The whole concept of a ‘sustainable lifestyle’ has changed as our love for technology and environmental degradation has grown. On a positive note, there are arguably more opportunities, now more than ever, for us all to contribute to the sustainability conversation in our own, unique way. This can mean anything from adopting a more minimalist approach to purchasing, altering your diet, reassessing your shopping choices, ditching your car, volunteering, growing your own, reducing your waste to landfill, campaigning, forgoing showers for the next 2 years (jokes, please don’t) – the list goes on and on. At its crux, greenwithme was born out of a desire to share stories about everyday people that are already doing things differently — with the overall aim being to get the sustainability conversation fired up to a whole new level. PLUS to ensure you get even greater value out of the content, we also pledge to provide you with actionable tips & advice, share uplifting “positive news” stories, celebrate wins both big and small, talk to a variety of change-makers and explore all the inspiring progress taking place around the world, every day.
Phew, it’s exciting isn’t it? (Hint: yes it is)
