Author: Becci Goodall Several years ago, I decided to switch to a minimalist lifestyle. I went from a cottage packed with a lifetime of knick-knacks to a wicker basket of mementos from my kids, a roll of paintings, and a suitcase of clothes.

Author: Becci Goodall Last month as my roommate and I were drilling holes in our compost bin with her kids Lu-Lu and Cedar, I was reminded how children are natural environmentalists.
