Ways to Become Involved to Create Health for Yourself, 

Your Family and Mother Earth

Even though most people are aware of the issues we face as a planet and a species, they feel overwhelmed about where to start to help make a difference. If everyone does something, it will help ease the burden on Mother Earth. Start at home and in your community. The slogan 'Think Globally and Act Locally’ is like the ripples in a pond and it does make a difference. As mothers and families see the strides they can make at home, they are more likely to venture out to a broader mission. We are all individuals and are called to put our energies in different places. That is why we are compiling a broad list of resources. Start your own local resource list and share it. Keep connecting with like minds because together we are making a difference.



WHERE TO START IN YOUR COMMUNITY –

THINK GLOBALLY AND ACT LOCALLY

  • Only eat organic or food grown biodynamically
  • Shop local healthy grocery stores instead of Whole Foods
  • Read labels very carefully
  • Find places to shop that are organic and free of pesticides
  • Search out organic restaurants
  • Eat an organic, whole food, plant-based diet when possible
  • Learn to cook the basics of a health promoting lifestyle
  • Cook with friends, and share recipes
  • Buy your organic vegetables and fruits from local farmers
  • Sign up for a Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) veggie box
  • Grow your own organic herbs and veggies. You can grow a lot in a little space 
  • Carry your own grocery bags
  • Sew grocery bags and give or sell them to friends
  • Don’t use plastic bags, straws, plastic water bottles, plastic wrap
  • As you walk or hike, take a bag, collect and dispose of litter you find
  • Ask your utility company to switch out your ’smart meter’ for the conventional type
  • Don’t put your cell phone up to your ear or in your pockets. Turn off when not in use. Don’t plug in or put your cell phone near your bed at night
  • Shut down your computer and all wireless devices at night
  • Find organizations that share your values 
  • Find connections either online in social media groups, or local happenings in your community
  • Know your local and state politicians, and support those candidates who will fight for your rights
  • Take care of yourself so you can help take care of Mother Earth
  • Small daily rituals make a big difference and take very little time
  • Take 5 minutes every day to be alone, breathe correctly and deeply
  • Remember to be grateful for what you have
