Lately, I’ve been thinking a lot about the carbon footprint I leave behind when I travel. I do as much as I can locally by using public transit and biking whenever I can, but sometimes I feel like I undo all that good when I fly cross country to visit my son every few months. So, as I planned my most recent trip from Oregon to Florida I decided to make my trip as eco-friendly as possible while offsetting some of my carbon footprint. Go off Grid The first thing I did bef...

Imagine you’re out to eat a celebration dinner with family and friends. You order a nice cold brew with a salmon filet and settle in for a fun night. After a short time, the waiter brings your table mugs of microplastic beads and plates of plastic trash and sides. Would you take a swig and dig in or would you be horrified? Gross, right? Unfortunately, this scenario isn’t too far from the truth; we are ingesting plastics when we eat certain fish and drink beverages from some areas. F...

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.

Cool, I thought, even though I wasn’t sure what the connection to bamboo toothbrushes was…and I was even more unsure what my wife’s reaction would be. Turns out, I wasn’t being sent to mingle with singles in night clubs and bars, but instead was charged with looking into how single-use plastics are being used across the city.

Whether we realize it or not our daily rituals are important moments that define who we are. They set the tone for how we live, create and rejuvenate. I learned this many years ago as a young single mama and I’ve been paying even more attention lately as I choose to live a more sustainable and mindful life.As a young parent of two children, my morning ritual began when I woke at dawn to sip a cup of coffee and sit in silence with my smooth journal and a fine point pencil. I allowed my mind t...
