Green Light- Robin

An eco-sista who says going green truly makes a difference and is beneficial 

How long have you been eco-friendly? I've been eco-friendly for about 8 years.

Why did you choose to bee eco-friendly? I really wanted to start to implement the practices that would lead to healthier living for the planet and its inhabitants, big and small. I decided to make a true effort to use less and be more conscious and of how I use my resources.

What do you like about it? It's very fulfilling. I feel like I'm doing my part for the environment.

Did you face any challenges?If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? Whenever you implement something new, it can be challenging at first. I basically had to retrain my thinking.

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? You can start off with little things like recycling, turning off the lights when you don't need them on, buying organic, using non-toxic products. Just know that you are absolutely helping the environment. You're helping to make the environment a better place!

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? No, I don't feel like a hypocrite. Going green truly makes a difference and is beneficial. That is why so many companies are now instituting Green initiatives.

You know I gotta ask, How long have you been natural and how do you keep it so FLY? I've been natural for a little more than 10 years. 90% of the time, I wear my hair in protective styles, such as two plaits, french braids, braid out loose buns, and half wigs. Throughout the week, I re-moisturize my ends as needed. I sleep with a satin scarf or bonnet on at night. I put direct heat on my hair about once every 3 months, getting a blow out and flat iron. On a daily basis, I drink about a gallon of water a day, eat well balanced meals, and take a multi-vitamin.

Is there anything you like to add? Currently, I can be found on Instagram- @msrobin_nella. I just joined instagram in April 2013. I post daily and I'm all about fitness, eating healthy, healthy hair tips, positivity, and empowering women. If you have a chance, please check me out! I'm working on a lot o exciting things right now. i'll be showing up on other forms of social media very soon. Stay tuned!
