Why we care about a sustainable lifestyle
By getting confronted with physical setbacks in our life, our lives changed drastically. Nevertheless, such changes made us aware things needed to change. For example, we had to say goodbye to our former professions. First and foremost we found that making better use of our resources, skills, creativity and imagination opened the way to new endeavors. Amongst which reducing our footprint became one of our pet peeves.
In that sense, with adjusting our lives, adapting to a sustainable lifestyle came natural. It enhanced our creativity, skills, imagination and we are indeed able to make much better use of our resources. Of course, it’s also part of our contribution to a better earth. However, as soon as we started adapting to this lifestyle it came very straightforward. Like a second nature.
What we do to live a sustainable lifestyle
Indeed, sometimes it is as simple as thinking twice before you act, buy, use or throw away. In other cases it requires more effort. That is to say, being diligent with our plastic, paper, cardboard and glass recycling is easy. Putting our kitchen scraps into the composter is even easier. Finding new ways to use things that had a specific purpose is harder. That takes time, experience and practice.
Therefore, as we mentioned already, we started growing our own food, at least as much as we can yield from our little backyard. We use rainwater to irrigate our garden. From scraps of reclaimed wood, we make jewelry and trinkets. With our skills we designed a card deck to improve on our and Your imagination, to enhance creativity, to improve our and Your writing. Through our books, blogs and other content You can further inform Yourself, how to be an example of a sustainable lifestyle Yourself.
Now, go through the pages of our website, read our blog-posts and look for yourself what other examples we have that can be useful to You.
