|If I could change one thing in the world, it would be:
||I don't think I could changed just one thing. Most important, I would change the governments lax regulations on consumer goods, and increase the quality of our schools and the education system.
|I think the most important environmental issue is:
||Public awareness, definitely. There are tons of issues needing dealt with and the best way to creat action is to educate people. I'm surprised at how little I used to know, and how much more there still is to learn.
|The greenest thing I do is:
||It's pretty equal between using personal care products that are safe, eating natural and organic, and not allowing cleaners into my home. Then there is energy conservation, as well.
|What does "sustainability" mean to me:
||Being able to survive without depending on others, not buying/using things that I don't need, saving money, and being concious of my impact on the earth's resources.
|Why am I passionate about being green?
||Mostly because it's better for myself and my family. I don't like the idea of being exposed to toxins. It doesn't hurt to help reduce my carbon footprint, either ;)
||I'm a SAHM of 2 little boys, I love to cook, and I'm a great singer;) I have accounts on myspace, facebook, and cafemom...and cafemom is my favorite. I have a group there called A Natural Life (about toxins in our products and foods), and I'm an administrator of Green Organic Natural Simple Living. KayMMIV has done an amazing job with that group!
