My wish for the planet 🌎

My wish for the world

I wrote this 3 years ago.

I had written ‘birth wishes’ for both of my children & had wonderful births which lived up to my wishes.

So I wrote this as I was reflecting on climate summits etc & always feel like there is not a lot happening.

I’ve always had an interest in environmental issues but have felt helpless.

I could have mentioned more in my wish but this is my basic planet wish.

Start where you are quote

Start where you are

I had already started by the point I had written my wish –

💜 I try to live sustainably

💜 Eat local

💜 Minimize household cleaning products & chemicals in general

💜 Trying to move toward zero waste

💜 Support those that are standing up & making their voices heard on the issue

💜 Being mindful about the impact what I’m doing, has on the planet.

💜 Organic skincare & cosmetics

💜 Support sustainable ethical companies.

These last two are what drew me to Miessence and why I continue to choose their products & remain a product partner. They are organic, natural & carbon negative ( one step better than carbon neutral).

So I feel confident supporting such a sustainable ethical company & sharing it with others.

I could go all out on this issue but I’m keeping this post positive, as my wish is, and that’s where I started it.

What is your wish for the planet? Environmental or otherwise. Let me know in the comments below.

Much love

We had a great idea and then made it a reality. Lucky for us the wonderful team at Miessence followed through on their dream for chemical free skincare, cosmetics & nutritional products. Creating the worlds first organically certified nutritional, health and beauty products.

If you want to know more about what they created, check it out their vision here.

What does minimalism have to do with organic food?

Currently there are many people moving toward a simpler minimalist lifestyle. You have people like the minimalists inspiring people to free themselves from the debt, clutter and stress which can come from having to much ‘stuff’.

Many are realising that less is more and happiness isn’t found in buying the latest thing while filling their homes with clutter. ‘Stuffocation’ as James Wallman coined it, has a disastrous ecological impact and can keep us from leading a more fulfilling life.

Think of all the time and money you spend on getting more stuff. Here’s another question for you.

What if you didn’t buy the latest toy and instead put that money toward your groceries?
That money can be better spent buying nutritious food, organic food, superfoods. You can buy bountiful, abundant, nutrient dense food to nourish your family.

By embracing minimalism you are living with quality not quantity. As Nicodemus one of the minimalists said in a recent article about owning less stuff “It’s about what adds value to your life”

So what if you spent that money on something you really value – wholesome nutritious food to fuel your body. It could lead to a healthier happier you, with the freedom of a clutter free environment which you can enjoy with your friends & family.

Do you embrace minimalism in anyway? What has this done to your life? I would love to hear about it in the comments below.
