Welcome to Many Shades of Green.
A little over a year ago my husband and I bought our first house.
Each of us, in our own way, has been interested in environmental
issues since we were much, much younger. That being said, the extent
of it was more "let's recycle the normal things and look at
alternative energy items like they were pieces from the lost arc" than
overhauling our entire lifestyle. Our outlook was influenced, but we
had limited buying power. As we shape our house into a home, we are
finally getting the chance to look at different alternatives, see what
we can afford to do, and what the little things are that we can do to
help make larger difference over time.
As I watch the different feeds come across the varying social media
I’m on regularly, there’s a discrepancy between my reactions. Some
things are seen as easily doable and either get pulled into future
actions or put on grocery lists. Others I look at and know that I’m
just not ready for that level of change. I applaud the people who are
able to do it, and it gives me something to think about as I plan for
While exploring what is able to be incorporated into my life, I’d also
like to look at the difference between hype and reality, as well as
top of the line value and practicality.
Welcome to the journey, it will be nice to have you along!
