Hi everyone! My name is Candice and I run the blog babystepsgoinggreen.wordpress.com
I started on my Zero-Waste/ Minimalist journey about six months ago, I was your typical consumer….I was a fan of things that were cheap and disposable.
When I was in college I had a professor who tried to open our eyes to the ills of the world and how each of us can make a dramatic impact simply by making better consumer choices…..safe to say I thought she was a bit extreme at the time 😉
But about seven months ago the truth of it all hit me, I was grocery shopping and I just happened to look down the entire aisle and all I saw was plastic covered processed foods. I went home and opened my fridge, and sure enough, it was also full of plastic. Right then and there I decided to change my ways and be a more conscious consumer.
Now I knew there was no way I would be able to switch my entire lifestyle overnight…it was going to take time, and baby steps. I created my blog to be sort of a journal of my baby-steps. I was lucky enough to find this amazing group of like-minded individuals with the Zero-Waste Bloggers Network, and it is such a comfort to know that there are other people out there going through the same changes.
I hope to be nearly 100% Zero-Waste within a year.
If you get a chance, check out some of our blogs 🙂
Good luck with your journey!
