Green Light- Shawnte

An eco-sista on a mission to show that a vegan lifestyle can be easy

How long have you been eco-friendly? It's an on going journey that started in 2008. I've been making small changes along the way and with each year I learn more and do more to live an eco-friendly life.

Why did you choose to be eco-friendly? It's the right thing to do for humanity and the animals. I like to model eco-friendly behavior for my son. It's easier to be eco-friendly if you grew up that way. 

What do you like about it? I like doing everyday things that make me feel good.

Did you face any challenges?If so, what was/is the biggest obstacle(s)? One of the biggest challenges is getting started with composting. I live in a small apartment and I'm not sure how to accommodate the materials I will need in such a small space. I know it can be done but I'm just not there yet. I'm open to suggestions.

Any tips/advice for someone looking to be more eco-friendly? YouTube is a wonderful resource. Start 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? All the time because it's a journey and there's no way to be perfect at it. We have to practice self love and just do the best we can.

You know I gotta ask, How long have you been natural and how do you keep it so FLY? I've been natural for 3.5 years. It's one of the best decisions I have made. Eating a plant based diet has helped my hair tremendously. I've seen a lot of growth in a short period of time. 

Is there anything you like to add? I'm on a mission to show people the vegan lifestyle can be easy and obtainable and is the right thing to do for our health, our animals, and our planet.

I provide resources for anyone looking to incorporate more fruits and veggies into their diet or is curious about the vegan lifestyle. Great for anyone who is looking to be healthy, lose weight, and live a healthier lifestyle. Subscribe to my YouTube channel for weekly vegan meal ideas.
