Join Team Earth ~ Do More . . . Or Less June 2, 2010

Posted by nrhatch in Life Balance, Nature, Sustainable Living.

We are all a part of Team Earth.  The choices we make impact the planet one way or the other.

We can do more by:  composting vegetable and fruit  scraps, joining a C.S.A., planting trees, biking and walking whenever possible, switching to CFL’s, investing in Fair Trade products, creating a backyard habitat for wildlife, etc.  

We can do less by:  adjusting our thermostats (up in the summer and down in the winter), taking shorter showers, using our cars less often, cutting back on paper and other disposable products, etc.

Or Less . . .

To help protect this precious planet for our kids and grandkids.

We are one ~ one world, one planet, one people, one future.   

No rules.  Just write!

*Cindy tiptoes away; guilty of indulgent hot baths*

As long as BP is using the Gulf of Mexico as a dumping ground, I don’t think we should feel guilty for indulging ourselves in things that we really enjoy ~ simple pleasures such as a hot bath to soothe away the cares of the day.

We should focus on trimming the “fat” ~ the things that aren’t bringing us real enjoyment.

The more conscious our choices become, the more we feel rewarded by the changes we make.

For example, over time, as a result of conscious decisions about what WE wanted, we downsized ~ from 4500 sq. ft (5 beds/3baths) in NJ to 1800 sq. ft.(3 beds/2 baths) in MD to our present 1300 sq. ft. villa (2 beds/2 baths) in FL.

And we LOVE it! Less to clean and maintain. Less to heat and cool. And less stuff sitting around collecting dust. Plus we now live exactly where we want to live . . . surrounded by things we love. It feels like a REWARD, rather than a DEPRIVATION. : )
