None of us are perfect. I try my best to live a sustainable lifestyle, I educate myself on environmental issues, and I share my tips and advice on this blog – however, there’s room for environmental improvement in everyone’s lifestyles. It can seem daunting to know where to start; there are so many different realms of what it means to live an environmentally–friendly life, do I go vegan? do I go waste-free? do I subscribe to an environmental magazine to keep updated on current events? Everyone will choose something different because we all have unique interests and capabilities, but I thought it would be useful to share my top 10 free resources for living a more eco-conscious life.
