I wanted to post on the small changes we have made this year to live a little more sustainably and tread a little lighter on this earth.

*growing more vegetables
*putting in fruit trees
*getting 6 chooks
*making dishclothes
*cutting up old clothes for cleaning cloths
*cutting right back on plastic wraps
*not buying over packaged goods
*buying local where possible
*switching off lights
*unplugging appliances when not in use
*using more pre-loved fabrics in my sewing
*thinking up ways to use all of my fabric and mixed media scraps instead of buying new.
*cooking from scratch
*walking or cycling to the shops
*using vinegar and bi-carb as a cleaning agent
*making and mending clothes

High on the priority list is...

water tanks
solar hot water
more fruit trees
making soap
making cheese

We have such a long way to go, but at least I can see the changes.

I love receiving comments and do try my hardest to comment back, sometimes though, life gets in the way.
