This week has been a doozie. I don’t even think I can even start to explain the emotions I was going through with packing, moving, digestive issues again, physical therapy, counseling, starting a new job….the list could go on.
But as much as it might be relieving to vent about all this, there is something I have been thinking about and bring to your attention: environmental awareness.
My blog has been undergoing changes for the past year as far as its content and while I’m ok with that, it seems like my readers are not; I have lost almost 70%+ of my readership in the past year. It may have been the move to http://tryingtoheal.com that made everything take a big hit, but at the same time I’m not posting about much food anymore….because in reality, I really want everyone in the blog world to realize what is going on outside the foodie world in the environmental world.
For instance, one of the biggest things that I wish foodies would discuss is eating more organic foods. I figure that if you have the opportunity and money why not for the sake of your health, and the environment? It’s one of the easiest things a person can do to help the environment without well, being like me and really getting your hands dirty to save the planet. There are also other things like purchasing from the farmers market, washing with cold water instead of hot, walking instead of driving, making your own food and the popular Meatless Mondays!
With Earth Hour less than two weeks away and Earth Day right around the corner next month, I guess I’m hoping that my foodie friends could be more aware of the simple actions they partake in that could affect the environment.
So in the next month and a half I’m going to spread the word about the simple things that you, my friends, can do to help the environment and make your readers more aware of what is going on in our natural world! I hope you’ll make an effort to spread the word our even post about some of the things I plan to discuss! I would love to see this effort grow stronger!
