Green Light- Samara

An eco-sista who likes that she feels so much better inside and out

How long have you been eco-friendly? I've been eco-friendly for about 2 years now. It started in the Summer of 2012 when I chose to be a little more health conscious about the things that I eat and from there the ball rolled to other things as well.

Why did you choose to be eco-friendly? I chose to be eco-friendly because it's a better lifestyle. I'm not 100% perfect  but I believe everyone should take pride in taking care of their bodies. Being eco-friendly means being better to yourself and that is exactly what I want to be. Also to the environment around us.

What do you like about it? I like that I feel so much better inside and out. I just have a certain energy that I didn't have before. I like the feeling of knowing that I'm taking care of myself and the world around me.

Did you face any challenges?If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? I don't really face challenges because I just practice what feels right. I don't hold myself to strict practices. Mostly, I try to eat well or use products that are more organic and eco-friendly, but there are times I'm curious about trying other things that may not be organic.

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? I'd say most definitely do your research first to know what you are getting yourself into. Also, start small. Something I didn't do. At the time I started my eco-friendly journey I completely changed everything and got overwhelmed. My body went into shock from the diet changes. Do what you can little by little and build from there!

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? Not really because I feel like there's a balance. I don't believe in completely denying myself of something. Unless I am under doctors order and have physical alignments and health conditions I use the "everything in moderation" motto.

You know I gotta ask, How long have you been natural and how do you keep it so FLY? I have been natural for four and an half years! I have a weekly regimen that I've created to keep my hair washed, conditioned, moisturized, and untangled. I love protective styles throughout the week to keep it healthy.

Is there anything you like to add? If you'd like to keep up with me follow my blog StyledChic and Instagram. Thanks!
