Green Light- Sassy


                         An eco-sista who says green living just makes you feel better

How long have you been eco-friendly? I am still learning to be more eco-friendly. We are taught in grade school to do things such as recycling and use less paper, so I guess I can say since a child.

Why did you choose to be eco-friendly? I chose to because it is healthier. As I get older I am more conscious about what I buy and use on my hair and skin. I try to buy more natural and organic products. I recycle water bottles when possible. I also do online billing to eliminate the paper build up.

What do you like about it? Living “green” just makes you feel better about things. You aren’t contributing (as much) to the harm of our environment.

Did you face any challenges? If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? Sometimes it can be costly. Organic and natural products are more expensive. Things such as car pooling and public transportation are not an option for me. I am in the South and things are not close proximity.

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? Just be more conscious of the things you buy and do. If you buy bottled water, set aside a bag or crate and throw them there. Do electronic billing and banking. If car pooling is an option, do so (it’s cheaper). It is the small things that add up.

Going green can be complex. This discourages a lot of people. There’s really no “right” way it’s basically trying to do something than nothing at all. I sometimes feel like a green hypocrite. Do you feel that way sometimes? I definitely do! Lol as I said before….I’m growing! Practice makes perfect

You know I gotta ask, How long have you been natural and how do you keep it so FLY? I have been completely natural for about 9 months. I deep condition twice a month and co-wash. I only shampoo to rid product build up. I try to do protective styling (i.e. twists, braids, etc) two weeks at a time. I keep it moisturized.

Is there anything you like to add? I love what you are doing. We all need to be more aware of the “go green” campaign. There are so many job opportunities with green companies! We only have one planet to live on and we need to preserve it! Thank you for the feature!
