If there is one thing that makes me happy and proud, it would be my eco-friendly home and habits. I am far from perfect, but every piece of trash I toss and every chemical I see on a label sticks with me. I think about Teflon chemicals found in the fat cells of Polar Bears. I think about giant plastic patches floating in the ocean. I think about poisoned seeds being sown across millions of acres of land. I carry these thoughts and so many more with me, and in order to avoid a complete daily meltdown I do everything I can to practice the things I hope will one day change the way we navigate the world.
This week I have all of my favorite eco-friendly products to share with you. After years of researching, and trial and error, I have a pretty epic list of favorites and I hope you’ll come back to give them a look. For today though, here’s a wonderful documentary on the importance of permaculture farming as THE alternative to chemical and monocrop agriculture. Here filmmaker Rebecca Hosking investigates how to transform her family farm into a more energy efficient farm of the future, and it’s a wonderful and enlightening watch. Our biggest impact on the planet comes from our energy consumption and how we eat. Both of these are addressed here, and the future of our food depends on information like this. (You’ll never think of horsepower the same way again.) Celebrate Earth Day by learning more about our food and energy.
