So the list goes on and on, by everything I mean everything. I am always talking about making on change a month. This one change a month has to be a conscious move toward a more sustainable life and a decision you know you will be able to live with and stick to for…. Well forever really.

Last week we celebrated two massive environmental awareness days firstly Earth Day and the the Fashion Revolution week was upon us. I have invited Elyse Hart from Dust to Stardust to share what these days mean to her. This is a great way to lead into our “No Buy Challenge” in May. If you want to join in all the fun of the challenge come and join us in our Sustainable Living Group.
One change a month is all it takes to make a huge difference in your carbon foot print. This week we are going to be looking at minimalism living.
