“The greatest threat to our planet is the belief that someone else will save it.”
– Robert Swan
Hello world! My name is Lilia Lopez. Join me in my journey to a more sustainable lifestyle. This journey started when I moved home from California to Arizona and saw how differently people created waste. Not using reusable grocery bags or straws and instead single use plastics were quite the norm. I wanted my home to be as eco-friendly as possible and thus lit a fire in me to start living more sustainability and build a community of individuals who wanted to do the same. The more I educated myself about the zero waste movement the more I became infuriated with how much excess waste we create every single day. It was time to take the blind fold off and start living a life that didn’t contribute to this epidemic. Join me on this journey to live more sustainably, help me make BYORS ( Bring your own reusable straws) the norm. Lets eliminate trash cans in homes and restaurants and replace them with recycling and compost bins. I promise to be transparent, authentic and engaging with the content I create. Figure out all you need to know, as I learn too, about making the transition from living a life surrounded by waste to one that respects the wonderful planet we inhabit. Read comment and engage and let’s make a change one small step at a time.
