Eating healthy as a family has been a really slow process for us. We started very small by purchasing a few organic items. Mostly we changed to organic because it was so cheap at Costco, but as time went on we found we really did like the taste of organic and we wanted to make larger changes. We now get a weekly organic box of produce delivered right to our door. It’s fantastic and the fruit and veggies have so much flavor. We eat a lot of salads and are even starting to think about organic meat. It’s been a 4 year process for us and it all started with a small simple easy change. That’s how things work. Change can start small.
Think of this, it’s back to school time and back to getting into routines. It’s the perfect time to make a change in your life to live more sustainably. September is all about new beginnings for your kids why not for the whole family. Even one small change can make a big impact. At Pure Energies, they have worked with thousands of families who took a small first step toward clean energy by choosing to go solar. Often that small step started a wave of change the travels down the street, around the block and throughout a community.
Try creating a carpool group in your neighborhood, or start up a Meatless Monday or turn out the lights before you leave the house. The recycling in our house is insane and it started up with small steps just like our organic eating has. You can make a change!
