Reduce, reuse, recycle.
Quite often, phrases like those above bring up thoughts of doing without and major sacrifices–particularly when we focus on “reduce” rather than reuse or recycle. While Kermit the Frog said, “It’s not easy being green,” being environmentally responsible doesn’t need to mean missing out on the great things in life. Unexpected benefits can be found everywhere, even in less obvious places like cabins for sale in Texas. (More on that later!) Focusing on the things you can do, rather than the things you shouldn’t do, makes environmental responsibility a positive force in your life. So, where’s a good place to start?
- Grow a garden–you can start with a single tomato plant if a whole big garden feels overwhelming or you just don’t think you have room, but those tomatoes will taste so good and fresh that before long you might find yourself talking planting schedules and root vegetables with your neighbors who were inspired to start their own gardens after eating your extra produce. Good food is contagious!
- Buy local–much like growing your own produce, buying locally grown or produced food benefits the environment by reducing the energy used to transport it. The food tends to be fresher and better quality, too. Local farmers also typically use organic products on their food, providing another great health benefit for you and your family. Win/win!
- Go vintage–expand your definition of “reuse” to include reusing items that others have stopped using. Although styles come and go, vintage pieces tend to wear well and can add just the touch of quirky charm that makes a house a home, or makes your outfit pop. A little creativity and research can help open your mind to nearly endless possibilities for repurposing vintage finds. Who knew that being eco-friendly could be so fun? One super-fun place to shop for vintage finds is at First Monday in Canton, Texas. While you’re there, you can check out cabins for sale in Texas (more about that later…really).
- Plant a tree–That’s it. Plant one. Water it so it stays alive. If you find that you enjoyed the digging and the fresh air and the sense of pride that comes from sustaining something beautiful that in turn sustains you and yours for generations, then plant another tree or find an organization that you can help to plant trees in public spaces.
