About

 

Hello there! I’m Bethany and I strongly believe that it is time for a change…for the world, for our communities, for our families, and for ourselves. We must think more about how we can create more sustainable habits to maintain a future for the next generation.

In 2015, my husband and I moved to Egypt. This is when pollution became a reality for me. On some of the most beautiful beaches I’ve ever seen, we would play a game called “Trash or Treasure?” It was mostly trash, and it really opened my eyes to the severity of the issues surrounding us. Hopefully, you have also become more aware of some of our global issues in the last few years as well.

My goal is not to tell you what the problems are. I think we all know. My goal is to work together to find and share more sustainable (and affordable) options for the everyday person.

Here’s the other issue: the majority of the sites that I find with eco-friendly products are based in the U.S. or the U.K. I don’t live in either of these places, and getting things shipped is…well…not the most sustainable thing.

Since we currently live in Lithuania, I will mainly be posting about products created in Europe. I know that the resources exist, but they can be harder to find. So it’s my goal to help cross the language barrier and make them accessible to expats.

I am by no means an expert at any of this, so let’s help each other out by creating a community of sharing! If you have a favorite sustainable company, business, or product, please comment!
