My name is Natasha. I’m 38 and a single mom but that is the least of my problems.
I became a vegetarian after reading Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals, a Vegan after watching Cowspiracy and I dived into zero waste living after coming across Lauren Singer’s blog Trash is for Tossers. (You’d be forgiven for thinking that I’m easily influenced.)
My best friend is a butcher. People continue to eat meat even though they’ve watched Cowspiracy and just about everyone I know will still ask for a plastic bag at the check out counter.
I started writing about all this because I’m scared. I feel that there is a sense of urgency to all these environmental matters that our consumer-driven society simply refuses to address because, well – it’s inconvenient. I started writing about all this because I have an 8 year old son and it matters to me what gets left behind for him. I started writing about all this because I love this old beauty we call home.
I started writing about all this because I care.
It’s good to be here. In company that cares:)
