DAY 26: My Environmental Goals for 2018 (30-Day Personal Blog Challenge)

Carrots

I've always been passionate about environmental issues, but in the past it was hard to live an environmentally-friendly life without social support. I just didn't have people around me who shared the same enthusiasm over not eating meat or recycling. There was no one to encourage me to keep going or keep me accountable.

My Dream I was going through the many drafts in my blog when I stumbled upon the post below originally entitled "Finding Your Dream". I had written it many years ago before I even became a mum.
