Everytime you reduce your use of fossil fuels, it is an act of resistance. #BeTheParisAgreement While the US may have withdrawn from the Paris Agreement, individuals really drive the impact of that. Every time a fossil fuel powered vehicle is used it impacts our earth. Transportation of resources and products have a huge impact on the earth. The best way I know to support the Paris Agreement as an individual is to reduce my use of products, especially disposable products. Reduced demand equals reduced pollution. In our home, we have set a goal of becoming zero waste. Zero waste means a lot of things to a lot of people and there are countless resources on the subject. For us, at the moment it means generating no garbage. We are close to that goal and it has been a lot easier than I imagined.

But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. From the Declaration of Independence Have...Read More
“A lot of things have happened and are still happening that I wish would not have taken place. But you have to remain optimistic. When things get bad, you have to keep telling yourself that maybe it’s just a phase, one more thing we have to go through. Nothing comes easily. We have to keep on trying, as long as we are alive.” “Don’t stop, she insisted. “Keep on. Keep on keeping on.” Mrs. Rosa Parks from the book The Rebellious Life of Rosa Parks by Jeanne Theoharis My husband John and I recently had the honor of attending...Read More
