Not so! Pursuing a lifestyle of simple green living is for everyone – no matter what your age, creed, race or religion is. It’s for you whether you live in an apartment, in a small home, in a rural area or on a farm.
Simple green living is not about going back to agrarian lifestyles, or about becoming self sufficient (although that is a possibility) it is simply about becoming aware of what it means to be a steward of the earth and ensuring that all the things we do are done with energy efficiency to the fore!.
The hidden bonus to the small steps you will make towards simple green living is that your health will improve, your family relationships will improve AND your wallet will not be so heavily relied upon.
OK, I will now admit that I have always been a closet tree-hugger, but “they” always make it so hard to live a green lifestyle, that I never “came out”!
So after years of doing a little bit here and there, 2008 was a watershed year for us in our home. We took back ownership of one area of dependency on others and learnt to grow our own food.
This one step has caused a snowball reaction into so many other areas of our lives – come and join an ordinary family on a journey from living a accepted westernized way of living to a greener lifestyle.
Come with us on a journey that you will never regret – let’s go forward towards simple green living!
