Green Light- Stephanie

After going natural with her hair, this eco-sista went on a eco-friendly spree

How long have you been eco-friendly? I have been eco-friendly for a little over a year now. I started my natural hair process last year and it kind of just made me want to be eco-friendly through all aspects of my life.

Why did you choose to be eco-friendly? Well, I went natural (with my hair) and it just opened doors to everything in my life. I started paying attention to how I would waste water, paper goods and I just went on an eco-friendly spree from there.  

What do you like about it? I like that the little bit I'm doing helps the world. It might not seem like it but if we all do just a little bit we could make a drastic difference. I also wanted to be healthier and be more conscious about what was going into my body, hair, and on my skin.

Did you face any challenges?If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? I think my biggest obstacle is being consistent. It's easy to forget to be eco-friendly!

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? I would say start off small! Start turning the water off while brushing your teeth, don't leave your TV on all night, recycle, try eating organically. Doing a little goes a long way! 

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 because I'm not doing it for anyone but myself. I'm not going to act like being green is the easiest thing in the world because it's not and can sometimes be a hassle. At the end of the day I know I'm at least trying and that to me is enough!

You know I gotta ask, How long have you been natural and how do you keep it so FLY? A little over a year now LOL. I keep my hair fly with a lot of patience and olive oil!

Is there anything you like to add? Yes, I have a blog that helps women with their natural journeys! I also showcase companies that are organic/natural and provide you with all the beauty essentials we need. I would love it if you guys stopped by StephRoyalty Thanks!
