    I need too buy less and start selling and giving more stuff away. I like the ideas of minimalism. Maybe 1 day :)

    I am  so sad. Learning more and more about  american recycling i realise that i can't recycle as much   as i was used to in my homecountry. I did so much wrong... And contaminated the recycling. I am so shocked that my garbage bin is going straight to the landfill. And it will be there for up to 500years. I really want to reduce  e my waste. Now more   than ever.

    New to composting? Be sure to check out the action resource links to learn tips and more about it. As you transition from throwing food away to composting, what do you notice about how much you are tossing? Do you know how your compost will be used and the benefits it has on the environment?

    Food Locally-Sourced Meals
    If you were to only eat what is in season locally, what would be the hardest for you to give up?

    The easiest task for me is to cook locally sourced meals. I love going to a farm with my kids. Feeding goats, admiring cute bunnies and buying local and seasonal veggies and fruits. It is so much fun for the kids and it tastes so good. What is more, My 2 year old started to eat more veggies.  Win win and win!
