    Convenience is one of the main factors for any damages that we are doing to this planet. A bit of mindfulness and effort goes a long way. 
  • Reflection Question
    Food Advocate For More Food Packaging Options
    Single use plastics have become normalized in our society to the point that most people don't see them as a problem. What would you say to a friend, colleague, or family member who may not understand why these disposables are an issue?

    The damage was done many years ago. Not many people could see the big picture. Now we are left to fix the problem.

  • Reflection Question
    Food Make My Own
    How do you feel about being more involved in the food preparation process? Joyful, overwhelmed, engaged, empowered? What are the benefits of choosing to process or produce your own food instead of buying it pre-processed?

    Just discovered my grand mother's hand made cloth storage bag. She has been my inspiration to upcycle.
    I am planning to make a few more to replace plastic containers in my kitchen.
