We are a community of individuals dedicated to counteracting the negative global environmental and socioeconomic impacts of a disposable consumer culture.
We choose to be aware of what we consume; what we buy. Our purchases are healthy for us; healthy for the planet; and healthy for the people who made it. We are dedicated to supporting local businesses, farms, and families in our community.
We share ideas, resources and information in effort to:
* be aware of how we leave an ecological footprint and take steps to reduce our impact on the environment.
* reduce clutter and waste in our homes by recycling, reusing and refurbishing.
* discover ways to prepare for a post-carbon future
* encourage and support one another as we blossom into deeper shades of green.
* simplify our lives.
