Even if you don't have a garden, you can still do a lot for the pollinators.
Our daily choises make the difference. The plants we choose, the food we eat, the products we use, ...
We need Nature, we need the pollinators and they really need our action and protection now.
So for this beautiful week, I'll be showing you flowers from the bee garden every day. I love just sitting there, looking at all the beautiful colors with so many species to find.
I think the most important thing when it comes to living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle is your intention.
Why you’re making the choice to be more conscious of everything you do, eat, and buy etc.
Because without a strong sense of why, it’s going to be difficult to continue, and you won’t be able to the most sustainable life for the benefit of the planet because you won’t understand why you are doing it.
So take the time to assess what that intention truly is, what you’re ‘why’ is and focus on that when you lose your way.
It may also be helpful to tell a friend, or to write it down somewhere where you’ll be able to read it everyday because that will help to keep you accountable.
How can we ensure that we’re living sustainably when we’re out and about?
Often times when I am out for the day I find that I want to buy a coffee, but have forgotten to bring my travel mug with me, in which case I will either drink in or forgo the coffee altogether.
But I’ve found that when these things happen, whether it’s a travel mug or a reusable water bottle or whatever it is, we feel guilty that we’re not doing our bit for the planet.
But in these situations it’s important not to beat yourself up about it, because mistakes happen, just try to do your best, and don’t dwell on situations afterwards.
I remember when I was a kid and come Mother’s Day or Father’s Day my siblings and I would all go into our parents room with our handmade cards and showered them with our personal messages about why our parents were important to us.
We would draw family pictures on the insides and watch as our parents smiled at our artwork attempts.
Sending someone a card is a great way to show them how much you care and how much they mean to you.
And when I decided to start my own business, that was something I wanted to carry on.
To help others send their own personalised message.
That’s why all are cards are blank inside, to allow you to make the message your own.
Indoor air has been found to be five times more toxic than outdoor air.
And we spend much more time indoors than outdoors.
This to me sounds like all the more reason to spend more time outside.
To breathe better quality air and to better connect with the natural world.
