This blog began as a record of our journey to cook up an old recipe for a new world.
The recipe? Less waste, more joy.
And by less waste I mean a lot less plastic. In 2010 our family took a four month plastic fast. It was a symbolic action to help us move beyond our modern day belief that plastic=life. Our goal? To do a little less harm to the earth in our daily lives, and to experience firsthand the joys of an unpackaged life.
These days we don’t have many “rules” about what we can and can’t buy, but we do try our best to bring as much consciousness to our choices as we can. We have chosen to live simply and on a single modest income, to buy secondhand or make our own, to eat well, and to bring a spirit of reverence and gratitude to raising our children, caring for the earth, and to life as a whole.
In other words, to let our lives be a prayer for the earth.
This blog is an occasional record of our days.
