Most of the time it is other people that get in the way of and inhibit living a life with less waste.
BUT there are also the people who encourage you, listen when you are rambling about compost or send you articles they think you’d find interesting.
So in honor of Thanksgiving, I want to thank all those encouragers and listeners in my life.
Thank you to my Mom for being an avid reader, always liking my Facebook posts, and being interested in what I am writing. I will forgive you for brushing it off every time I tell you that I am going to build you a compost bin in your backyard.
Thank you to my Dad who has contributed to a lot of my DIY projects when I need help or materials.
Thank you to my Aunt MM who replies to my posts with great enthusiasm about how she is making changes or how she has been using cloth napkins for ages! Also for teaching me about haggling and getting a great deal at garage sales. Some of our recent purchases together are below:
Thank you to my friend Julie for calling me the other day to tell me she was going to purchase non-toxic nail polish and for sending me new blog ideas.
Thank you to my friend Britni and her husband Eric for appeasing me on a ski trip by picking up trash and always holding myself accountable.
Thank you to my friend Nina for starting her own compost bin in her backyard.
Thank you to K’s friends who read the blog specifically to make fun of K for composting. You’re still talking about composting and I call that a win!
A huge thank you to all my other friends, family, and readers who have sent me articles, comments on my posts, shared a story with me or told me how much you like reading my blog.
