I have joined Tennessee Women in Green, or TWIG, a sustainability nonprofit for women here in Nashville. So pumped! My first meeting was yesterday, the 10th, and it was so refreshing to be in a room full of women who also were just as passionate, if not more, about sustainability and helping out Nashville in general. I met with so many strong, smart, dedicated women and I can’t wait to see what I can bring to this group to further the cause.
Becoming a part of this group has just refueled the fire inside me to make a difference. Below is a video I loved watching and it gave me that extra boost of inspiration.
Now it’s just a matter of trying to adapt some of Lauren’s daily habits. I definitely won’t be making my own beauty products/toiletries, but maybe an alternative is figuring out if anything I do normally buy is recyclable or if there is an organic alternative. The most I contribute to plastic waste is definitely by food. Everything I buy is wrapped in plastic it feels like. Especially when I buy anything frozen, or powerbars and quick snacks for work. I will definitely keep you posted on my journey goes into trying to become less wasteful. Also, I am looking into where my recyclables go once I put them in the toter out front.
PS: special shoutout to Hawaii, (click here), for eliminating most plastic bags!
