My husband and I didn't always prioritize living a green lifestyle, but something changed once we started volunteering at an all species rescue, Ferdinand's Familia. There we learned about animal welfare and the impact that farming can have on our environment. Volunteering snowballed into researching other ways we could live a more sustainable lifestyle.
Soon we began limiting our animal product usage and I eventually became a vegetarian. As we delved deeper into the desire to create less waste and live a greener lifestyle, we found tons of other ways to support healthier living practices and have passed these simple shifts on to our little one. While we are in no way perfect when it comes to green living, we aim to continuously keep learning and challenging ourselves towards making new changes. Here are the ways we've gotten greener at home.
