I’ve been working toward a rather ambitious goal–rethinking the everyday impact of our family’s buying choices. My objectives are to lessen the amount of landfill-waste caused by our family, reduce our reliance on fossil fuels (which includes limiting our use of disposable plastics, which take OIL to make), get more of the things we need from second-hand sources, and consume/prepare food that is less processed/closer to “natural.” I call it Project Simplify — a tiny bit of sarcasm there, because, umm, doing this shit is hard.
So far, we have made drastic changes to just about every facet of our lives. I’ll be talking about this in the coming weeks. But today, I’m going to run around the park and chase my kids! Have a lovely 3-day weekend!
