Daily Choices

“…the care of the earth is our most ancient and most worthy and, after all, our most pleasing responsibility. To cherish what remains of it, and to foster its renewal, is our only legitimate hope of survival.”

― Wendell Berry, The Art of the Commonplace: The Agrarian Essays

If you care about protecting the planet, eating ethically, cleaning up your neighborhood, growing your own veggies, learning to compost, reducing waste, fighting racism, promoting food independence, shopping locally, recycling, and multiplying your impact as an environmentally conscious consumer, please join me for the Daily Choices discussion group! We’ll meet on Wednesdays at 3pm eastern/2pm central to talk about how to make small and large choices to care for people, the planet, and the future.

Contact me for the zoom info.

Join me on Wednesdays at 2:00pm central time
to talk about “Ethical Living” in the areas of Creation Care and Social Justice.

We’ll learn about little things we can each do to make positive changes in the products we consume, the ways we live in our homes and neighborhoods, and how we interact with others on the local, state, and national levels.

Gardening

We share ideas both amateur and professional about growing native flowers and food, composting, lawn care, water usage, and more. You can make little changes whether you live on a farm or in a dorm room!

Food

We’ll talk about ways we can make food choices that are healthy for our bodies, our neighborhoods, the people who grow and process it, the planet, and the economy.

Consumerism

We’ve been trying to learn about the impacts made by the products we buy and about the power we wield through our purchases.

Social Justice

We’ve brainstormed and researched ways that we can learn about and then work against injustice, mostly in the area of the racial reckoning our country is going through.

TOPICS

Here are some ideas for what we might talk about in our meetings:

Multiply Your Impact
Can you save the world alone? Nope. Can you even make much of a difference in the overall carbon output and waste generation of the human race? Nope. However, you CAN multiply your impact as a consumer, voter, and influencer, and today we’ll talk about how.

Recycling
Does recycling really work? What are recycling, upcycling, and downcycling? What materials are really getting recycled? How much difference does it make?

Grocery Shopping

Let’s talk about where your ingredients come from, whether they’re good for you and the planet, how they are packaged, how far they traveled to get to you, and alternatives to the big chain grocery stores.

Fast Fashion
Shopping Locally
Neighborhood Trash Cleanup
Composting
Square Foot Gardening
Rewilding Lawns
Waste Reduction in the Kitchen
Waste reduction in Bath, Body, & Beauty Routines
Zero-waste & Chemical-free Households
White Folks and Juneteenth
Alternatives to Calling the Police
Prison Reform


Let’s change the world together.
