As soon as I became pregnant with my first child, I knew I wanted to raise a family that makes eco-friendly choices and to learn how to be environmentally friendly. At our house, we try to focus on living minimally and reducing, reusing, and recycling. My oldest son has been learning about recycling at home, and we even like to take “junk” and make art projects with it.
We buy children’s products like Re-Play plates/utensils, and toys such as Green Toys or Shore Buddies; which are adorable stuffed animals made from recycled plastic bottles.
I’ve also written about our decision to be vegan before, but have you ever read about a plant-based diet effects the Earth?
If you’ve read this article from Smithsonian or other articles floating around the web, you might have read how livestock is negatively impacting our Earth. Even the Amazon Rainforest is being sacrificed for crops to be exported for cattle feed. There are also claims that following a plant-based diet can help fight global climate change.
On the topic of deforested land and climate change; I find it’s very important to have land developers on our side to help fight climate change and use land responsibly. One person doing this very job is Marty Stallone; Executive VP of Land Development and Managing Director of Metropolitan Development Group. He makes sure any land needed for growth of a community is economically beneficial as well as environmentally friendly.
As a family, we try to do our small part to keep our planet growing and thriving for the future; but it’s nice when “the big guys” are out there helping too.
