Living Sustainably

Have you ever read the Bill Peat book, “The Wump World”? It’s a really great one that we like to read to our boys! 

The sweet goat-like animals called the Wumps have a peaceful life eating bumbershoots and sipping from pristine streams. That is, until the Pollutions come along and destroy the Wumps’ beautiful world and just about all of their bumbershoot trees. Eventually the Pollutions leave to destroy a new planet… and there’s not much good left for the Wumps. 

Ok so why am I talking about Wumps?!

Well, I feel like mankind is a bit like the Pollutions… just destroying the planet! 

If you’re paying even a slight bit of attention you’re likely hearing a lot about environmental issues. And while I’m not sure all of the claims are efficacious, I believe some are no doubt a problem! For instance, all the plastic trash in the ocean. It’s absolutely awful. 

Or just start paying attention to how much trash your household puts out… it’s kinda wild! 

So, yes, there are some major issues no doubt, but what are some actual tangible solutions we as individuals can do to help? 

We can live more sustainably!  

My family and I went to a homesteading conference last year and it was so inspiring. From the time I was a young girl, I had the desire to grow much of my own food. My adult dream is to grow around 30% of our food. And if you’ve been following along, you see us posting about our chickens, our fruit trees, composting, gardening and more! 

It’s been so rewarding, yet challenging too! And we are just dabbling at this point! Bravo to those out there really doing it!!! We just harvested our first coconuts after waiting about six or seven years!!! It was a celebration that’s for sure!! 

Living Sustainably

I believe sustainable living is hands down the best thing you can do for the environment and it’s epic for your health – in my opinion! (;

Sustainable living doesn’t mean you have to make crazy life changes tomorrow. But you can at least educate yourself and explore ways you can bring health, vibrance, and overall live a more sustainable life!

I encourage you to research and get creative! Try growing a micro-garden in your backyard, master sourdough bread, or learn about the ways that food can heal our bodies!
