Over the past few months I have become increasingly aware of my lifestyle and its environmental and ethical footprint. I was previously aware of environmental issues, but had never fully connected them to my every day life. Since learning more by reading books, articles, and blogs, and by watching documentaries, I have been making much more responsible shopping choices. I’ve considerably reduced how often I shop, changing what I buy and where I buy it from. I have recycled, resold or donated many unwanted items and will continue to do so throughout 2016.
