Sustainable Living and Your Impact on the Planet

Welcome to Eco Friendly Living and Gardening! Join me on my journey of learning about sustainable living, simplifying the life and reducing our environmental impact in the home, at work and during leisure activities.

Change Your Life and Reconnect with Nature

We became so disconnected from our origins and our place in the ecosystem that instead living in harmony with the environment we are destroying it and by doing that , we are also destroying ourselves.

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, and Rethink!

You can minimize your impact on the environment by becoming more eco-conscious. Simplify your life by only purchasing things that are necessary, not excess items that drain your budget and clutter your life. Having many things around you clutters your home and also your mind. And, it is not environmentally friendly. Why not to reuse items or Freecycle them. We should not be using disposable items instead of reusable ones. Some broken things can be fixed instead of throwing them away and buying new ones.

Only after the last tree has been cut down,
Only after the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then you will find that money cannot be eaten.
