Sometimes college turns kids into tree hugging hippies. Well, I didn't start dreading my hair but I did most definitely become more environmentally conscientious. My English class, centered around the subject of food shed light on many issues I really didn't know existed concerning organic farming and genetically modified food. I always ate what was given to me and never really thought how it got to my table or how it was grown. Being a college student eating in the cafeteria, it is hard to eat organic. Now knowing the facts about the food industry, for the future when I am making my own food I will try to buy as much local and organic food as possible. Not only organic food do I want to buy, but organic and vegan clothing too (which Stella McCartney does a fantastic job at). Accounts of the meat industry are quite disturbing, and although I love chicken too much to become a vegetarian, I feel that buying vegan clothes can act as a little helping hand. Everything goes hand in hand - from organic farming to charity- and it all effects the economy. It is the little habits we can all start to acquire to make a difference in our communities - recycling (its unreal how many plastic products can be recycles), buying vintage/organic, turning off the water when brushing your teeth or washing your face (it can save a few gallons), filling up your own reusable plastic water bottle, turning off the lights when you leave the room - all little, but meaningful steps you can take to help preserve our environment. Pretty soon the "Green Movement" will not be a trend or a new idea, but rather just everyone's way of life.
Stella McCartney clothes and heels - if only I could afford!/Tom's shoes - for every pair bought, a pair is given to a child in need
***there are so many other ways to help the environment - how do you go green?
