New Year's Resolution 2011: Go completely organic by year's end...Ambitious you might say...I say bring it!...Okay, so my 'bring it' has fizzled a bit since January 1, 2011...Due to a recent move to beautiful Hawaii and astronomical prices, I have yet to even come close to realizing this dream.
~The tragic mistake of so many in the environmentalist movement is the belief that the rest of the world can afford to hold itself to our expensive green standards.....~
I saw this quote on a friend's facebook wall and thought, wow I'm getting a lot more than I bargained for on my quest to become 'Green'...it is actually going to take much time, research, and I might possibly have to sell a kidney (okay pun intended)
Well, although I did have a moment of serious disillusionment, I have decided to resume my mission of becoming 'totally organic' by year's end. I think I will most likely forgo the idea of buying all pre-made products and dabble a bit in 'homemade', especially after forking over $160.00 for my little eco-friendly bag full of goodies yesterday at the all-organic vegetarian grocery store.
So now I am on a new mission to see how much of the 'all mighty dollar' I can keep in my little consumer hands! Yes I am so selfish and greedy...I just love keeping those little greenbacks all to myself;) It will most likely entail some serious research and little elbow grease, but I am a 'perpetual optimist' and believe it can be done! So here goes...Let the research begin!
