Low Impact Week

  • Unplug appliances when not in use that still draw energy when off (like my cell phone charger, computers, microwave, etc.)
  • Talk with my neighbours about installing a rain barrel between our townhouse units and seek community approval if our neighbours are supportive.

I am passionate about reducing my impact on the environment and am learning to live simply and live green. I am learning the age old arts of home food preservation and cooking from scratch. This is yet another eco-blog and a place for me to really channel my passions for writing, photography and sustainable living.
