As a young environmentally-conscious student living in a residential area, it often seems that the world I live in is at complete odds with the one I want to live in.
To be green on a regular basis is a constant struggle-- against peer pressure, city infrastructure, (oh Winnipeg Transit...) mass media, and my own laziness. Convenience and popularity are often things modern environmentalists have to forgo, and it's not easy. I'm not nearly as successful as I'd like to be.
My inadequacy as an environmentalist (and the ensuing guilt) is something that causes me a lot of grief, and it's not just going to go away. This blog will be a documentation of victories and failures in my continuing quest to make sustainability a way of life-- not just a hobby. I'll share helpful tips, strategies, info, and problems I have yet to overcome. I'll also touch on current environmental issues in politics and the media.
Always feel free to comment with tips, experiences and thoughts. I also hope to link up to other bloggers whenever possible. For example, check out Danielle Conolly's post on how to de-clog your drain without all those nasty chemicals.
