My husband and myself try to integrate being as green as possible in every facet of our lives. It is not as difficult as one might think. We have just recently moved we recycled, gave to charities and friends in need the belongings we no longer needed when down sizing.
Being environmentally is a long process and a goal of mine, and I’ve been taking small steps to reach that goal- bringing reusable bags to the grocery store and recycling regularly. It’s no surprise that adopting this as a lifestyle is easy, and I’ve found that living on a college budget, along with the ongoing stress of school, makes for even more roadblocks. The next step for me is learning how to be trendy, while doing my part to help the planet.
Some of the facts I’ve found on the impact of the fashion industry on the environment is astonishing:
“Combined, apparel and footwear production are responsible for approximately 8.1 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.”
“It takes 713 gallons of water to make a single cotton t-shirt.”

And birds that sweetly sing
Whisper to me that it’s Easter

We have had a cold spell with lots of snow and very little sun for months. I had not seen grass for months. In the last two weeks we have been having a warm spell of 2-9 C with snow storms in between. I saw my first snowdrop flowers and crocuses today. Spring is on it’s way. We are expecting two snow storms back to back coming our way. I do not care because today it was sunny 4 C. Spring popped up its head.
Would you change? Thought provoking lyrics that I hope you enjoy as much as I have today.

moderated by infinite shades of grey
sometimes the soft fuzzy colors of fog
or sharply bounded shadows on a sunny day
the pearl-toned texture of morning clouds
shifting hues with changing light
a respite from noontime’s glare or the inky ebony
of a stormy snowless moonless night
Softening contrasts of gradiating grey
creating a comfortable space
in between light and dark
where too many of us choose to stay
Liberating the colors of rainbows again
requires searching our souls, healing our pain,
letting go of illusions and unnecessary things

Would you change?
Would you change?
If you knew that love can break your heart
When you’re down so low you…
