I’m super eco-friendly, and sort of obsessed with waste turning everything into reusability. At times it looks like I’m a hoarder, but really I just need a thrift store reusable wool cape with 3 R’s on it. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle. I can’t even throw away a plastic twist tie without thinking of how to reuse it, so I put it into my stash of other twist ties till either Pinterest or I comes up with a genius idea of how to use a 100 plastic twist ties, you know the kind that comes with your bread, that you didn’t make from scratch. Shame! Just kidding. That’s also compostable – shame.

vw-tree-loverI strongly believe that whatever we do for our planet, we’re doing for ourselves because we are not separate.  Our planet is us, so I stay awake in being conscious with my every action. But in that doe eyed alertness, I don’t do anything through guilt as I know that doesn’t work. I don’t reuse, things because I feel guilty of loading up a landfill, I reuse them because I like to challenge myself in being creative for plastic has a long life cycle yet we treat it as disposable, through one time use. This breaks my heart, just like when I get a present, I don’t wear my shirt one time and throw it away, that would be silly, so same thing goes with twist ties. Yet, there are times, I have no choice but to throw it away and then I think, I’ll make better choices, like who and what I vote for so I don’t have to be put in this position of being helpless and forced to clean up another’s mess of not being cognizant.

I also sell Norwex, a chemical free cleaning product that only uses water. I’m super nerdy when it comes to being green and clean, I thank my Virgo ascendent for that. So, in summary, Norwex’s star product is the EnviroCloth, which is a highly dense microfiber cloth that has BacLock in it which self purifies. Meaning I get the cloth wet, and you can pick up raw chicken juice with a wipe of the cloth, and then proceed to wipe down other areas deterring cross contamination. I prove this, in my videos, by testing the area with a protein test swab along with other independent laboratory testing videos. Then you rinse and hang to dry and your cloth self purifies by 24hrs, cutting down on the usage of laundry and chemicals. I could go on and on, but instead here’s my website and you can connect with me on Facebook also if you’re interested.

So, to me being ‘crunchier than granola’ isn’t about superiority but instead inclusitivioty. Everyone is doing the best they can, learning from each other which means they do more for the whole understanding how their actions affect everything. My job, as I see it, is to lead by example, never condemn, instead show another the gems uncovered when we think about matter in the form of life cycles. So, I try to share my creative moments in spurring your creative intelligence in looking at items and how to repurpose and even having a trade group of ‘new to you’ gifting. I created a group a while ago with my local community called The Spring Shed. “Shedding what you no longer need and getting what you do.” This project was a lot of fun and can be used in your community, just connect with me and I’ll share with you the details on how to start it up.
Remember, to do what you do, with love and respect, but ultimately it’s for you.  You are everything!

Bio: I am a seafull of mountains always seeking the truth, a mystic-called dragon, a psychic phenomena(l) goddess who births stars and makes wishes on their dust. I just love being me. And you being you.

I live in remote, pristine, Alaska and also the regenerative healing waters of Florida, discovering how life is meant to be loved. My husband and two children are my entire universe in which we frolic about, living out this dream. “Live on purpose”, I say!
