Man must feel the earth to know himself and recognize his values.... God made life simple. It is man who complicates it. ~Charles A. Lindbergh
Climb the mountains and get their good tidings. Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. ~John Muir
In our home we live by the motto, reduce, recycle and re-purpose. I have spent the last several years reducing our waste and have totally eliminated one time use items like paper plates, paper towels, water bottles and plastic bags from the market to name a few. I've made my own fabric bulk and grocery bags as well as continue towards a self sustaining lifestyle. It's not easy to eliminate the use of plastic it's everywhere but i know every little bit helps. Imagine if everyone did a little the impact would be great.
This is one of my favorite quotes, i think about it often as i wonder what i'll leave behind for my children and their children...
We do not inherit the earth from our ancestors, we borrow it from our children. ~Native American Proverb
