I’ve come to the realisation that consuming better is easier than consuming less! As I have sought to live more sustainably, I’ve made many small changes. I still however have many many areas where I can live more justly. I don’t tend to write about the things that aren’t going so well!
Do what you can…and then do a bit more.
