Green Light- Renee

An eco-sista who says you just have to know what you want and how to get it

How long have you been eco-friendly? For about 3 years 

Why did you choose to be eco-friendly? I chose to become eco-friendly because I feel it is important to know what products you are using whether it is for your body or your surroundings.

What do you like about it? I like to be in control of what I put in and on my body. Saving money and because most of the products are natural I am helping preserve the planet, which is a plus.

Did you face any challenges?If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? My biggest obstacles would be access of natural/organic products and at times the price. Example, there is a McDonald's literally ON EVERY CORNER but stores like Whole Foods are at least 30 minutes away ( with no traffic might I add) and those stores usually close early. 

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? "If you fail to plan you plan to fail" I say this because when I first started I just hopped in. I had no previous knowledge I did not ask questions. I was just kind of like "on such and such date I am eliminating a, b, and c" LOL! Nothing is hard about it but you just have to know what you want and know how to get it.  

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 never feel like a hypocrite (this question actually makes me think about some things I could possibly be doing a different way) because if you make a plan for yourself who is to tell you that you aren't doing it right?

You know I gotta ask, How long have you been natural and how do you keep it so FLY? I have been natural off and on for 2 years but in April I did the for real big chop. I cried right there in the barber chair when I realized I had absolutely NO HAIR. My kids are still laughing at me about it SMH. Because my hair is so low, I keep my face and hair moisturized and always wear bulky earring, bright lips, or heels. THERE'S NO WAY I COULD LIVE WITHOUT IT! LOL
