Starting a life of sustainability can be intimidating, but not to fear! Did you know that even the smallest changes can reduce your carbon footprint? This week, Ed and Rachelle share what they first did to aid in environmental protection, and how environmentalists such as Don Henley and Rachel Carson inspired them to take the leap. They also explain why they had to be squatters before they received LEED certification for their eco-friendly home, and read some advice you sent us about improving environmental issues.
LESSONS FROM THIS EPISODE:
1. Start small. You don’t have to make huge changes.
2. No one is perfectly green. Don’t avoid doing something because you’re afraid you won’t do it perfectly. Don’t let perfection be the enemy.
3. In the words of Don Henley, “Without the environment, we have nothing.”
