How Sustainable Am I?

I get asked a lot how I am sustainable in my own lifestyle. My answer always is: it’s a process. It’s challenging to be completely sustainable in today’s world with all of the products and lack of knowledge we have about environmental issues.

I try to buy from sustainable brands but without a doubt I stay FAR away from fast fashion. I buy a lot less but I buy more of what I love and less of pieces I’m indifferent to. I’m working to have my wardrobe be 100% sustainable but I will repeat my previous statement: It’s a process.

In other respects, I’m trying my best to make good choices for the planet. For the most part I buy food that is better for the environment and not processed. Of course, I do slip up and go out for junk. I also travel a lot which is not a sustainable option.

Here is my point: I’m not perfect. I’m trying to make the best decisions for myself and for the planet. Sometimes its little things like not using plastic, saving materials that can be used later, and only getting what I need. I do not have the most sustainable lifestyle by any means but I try to do the best I can. Once choice at a time, we can all make a difference. It starts with awareness and baby steps and eventually we can all help the planet.
