my thoughts on climate change

My main reason for trying to choose more eco-friendly options is less about climate change and more about Jesus. // I don’t want to litter because that destroys the beautiful world God created. // I don’t want to buy fast fashion because I care about the treatment of the workers. // I don’t want to […]

A New Journey

I’ve been thinking about the environment, and waste, and minimalism. With Woolworths getting rid of thin plastic bags, the environment is on a lot of people’s minds.
