Nearly 10 months.
It's incredible how quickly time can fly by and 10 months have suddenly passed.
I look back over the last 5 years and see how my life and the lives of my family have change (for the better, I think) as we have tried to live a little greener. We eat better, waste less and tend to appreciate the little things more. It has all been a gradual change but many of the changes have been permanent and I think it is because it all happened in small steps, when we were ready. It does get a little harder as the kiddoes get older as there are so many more influences in their lives. I suppose as parents we just hope that the little messages we try to teach embed themselves somewhere in their young minds.
With Plastic Free July less than a month away, it is time to get the focus back on reducing more single-use plastic from our lives. There is a lot that, as a family, we refuse but there are always the little things that sneak back in when we are feeling rushed. I think it is time to do a bit of an audit.
I'm looking forward to getting back into the blogging world and feeling excited about living a more waste-free life.
