In this day and age, buzz words are being flung about left and right. Green, organic, fair trade, sustainable, recyclable, renewable, etc. The bottom line is this: humans actually impact the earth. How we dispose of trash, what we drive, and everything that involves physical being has an affect on the world.
So, why am I writing? Why should you read? Because I'm not an Einstein nor am I an activist. I'm someone just like you who wants to live healthy and feel human again. I have a vested interest in learning how to live and leave the smallest human footprint behind. I want to take what I've learned through hard-work and present it in a simple and organized way so everyone can benefit.
Living a healthier, cleaner, purer life that integrates with this age can be a struggle for many people. The hustle of life has taken people far away from the fields they used to tend. But don't worry, you don't have to be Amish to enjoy the simple pleasures of life again--like making your own cheese, bread, and soap from scratch. You just have to want it. Make the time. Feel that human part of you that feels connected to the world.
So I've already alluded to the more direct purpose of my blog and that is to give people the opportunity to live healthier lives through education. This isn't just about food and detergent. It's about better living, which also includes architecture, engineering, and technology.
I will also share links to every source that I've used for each post. Full-disclosure is key to re-educating people about how they CAN live! We can do this together. Robust conversations and all.
Since I am from Houston, Texas (Go Coogs!), I will also do a monthly post about developments in Houston and/or the state in the sustainable living "industry"! Yay! It'll give y'all a taste of the South and at the same time connect me to other Texans and Houstonians who are interested in sustainable living too.
I hope y'all look forward to more from my blog, The Ordinary Chipmunk. I'm ready.
One foot in front of the other.
