Starting Again

I’ve decided to take this blog in a new direction; I’d apologise but I doubt anyone was that eager to find out what I was doing next in my older posts. Two years ago I wanted to become a photography whizz, a semi professional pastry chef all the while looking eating and looking like Lily Cole (only prettier). I’ve gotten myself a standard 9-5 job since then, so I’ve traded baking days to Netflix weekends, and slogs to the gym for light yoga in the morning…feather light. I’m pretty disappointed in myself, but I’m also pretty comfy in the thought that it’s never too late to start again.

The one thing that I have always felt pretty set on is protecting the environment. If you’re anything like me, you may find watching the news pretty fucking terrifying right now. I don’t want it be too political, because the world wasn’t doing too well before the logic shattering events of 2016, but a host of poisonous climate change deniers being in control of one of the largest superpowers in the world doesn’t exactly bode well.

But what are we to do? It all seems too gargantuan. Who are we to battle with the Co2 spewing, plastic piling, ignorance over action society we’ve embroiled ourselves in? Isn’t it too late to start being environmentally friendly? Isn’t it expensive? A bore? Where do we even start?

We start at the beginning.

I’m going to try out simple little changes to make this world a little better, step-by-step, and be completely honest about how sustainable everything is. I don’t want to be preachy, and I’m sorry if it comes off that way, I just want to stop being that person who worries about the environment, but never does a thing about it.

If it’s pricey I’ll be honest, if it’s too hard I’ll let you know, and if I feel ridiculous and stupid and look like a fool…I’ll be sure to take pictures. I’m pretty imperfect when it comes to living green, but I’d like to find out how to be better, and I want to show people how it goes, just incase they’re struggling about where to start too. If you have any suggestions or ideas, let me know! I’d love to try it.

There’s 7 billion people on this planet, and I think it’s time we stop acting like we’re the only ones here.
