Green Light- Christa

An eco-sista who knows the choices she makes is truly making a difference

How long have you been eco-friendly? I've been eco-friendly for about 3 years now, if I count my years as a vegan, then that would make it 8 years. :-) I honestly learn something new about being "greener" almost daily. It is definitely a journey.

Why did you choose to be eco-friendly? The more I learned about the devastating effects our daily choices make on the planet, I knew I needed to educate myself more and implement changes in how I live in order to contribute to improving the environment.

What do you like about it? I like knowing that the choices I make, truly make a difference in the grander scheme of things. Every little bit helps. You may think you're only one person, but if each person makes a small change, even something as simple as recycling, it can truly go a long way.

Did you face any challenges?If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? I face challenges frequently. With so much information out there on what is damaging to the environment, you can easily feel overwhelmed and think it would be easier to just go live under a rock! I just make it a point to do the best I can and implement changes where I can.

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? Just start! Research and educate yourself on how to be kinder to the environment and make small changes daily. The more you know, the more you grow! Start looking at the products you use on a daily basis and see if they are from a green company, if not, look to replace them with products that are. I recently starting doing that within the last year when I switched over to using Arbonne and I'm also an independent consultant for them because I believe in their all natural products and their green commitment. So, starting with what you use on a daily basis is a great place to begin.

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? Of course I do at times! I'm not 100% there as I said, I try my best. I truly believe it's a journey and if you're committed to it, as with anything, you can only get and do better!
