Make One Change August 2018

August’s Change was to take the one thing that you eat the most off the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen list, and buy it organically from now on. We went on to learn why, gathered further resources, and finished the month with the Clean Fifteen list and some recipes to eat more from this list!

A little off topic for August's change: choose the one fruit or vegetable that you eat the most from @environmentalworkinggroup 's Dirty Dozen, and buy it organic… Until you think of it like this: it is not just one exposure to one pesticide that's going to give you cancer, it's the sheer volume of hundreds toxins assaulting us daily in the food we eat, what we put on our skin, and what we breathe. One exposure is almost certainly "safe" but when we scale our exposure, the same way this meme describes the plastic problem, it is an "a ha" moment for sure… #Repost @the.eco.warrior (@get_repost) • • • Make a difference 💚 #truth #plasticsucks ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #zerowaste #zerowastelifestyle #reuse #nowaste #sustainablelifestyle #plasticfreejuly2018 #zerowastehome #minimalism #zerowastelife #yayforearth #giveashit #packagefree #zerowaste #plasticfreejuly #plasticfree #reuse #noplastic #recycle #upcycle #zerowasteliving #reducereuserecycle #saynotostraws #lesswaste #sustainableliving #earthfriendly #zerowastejourney #plasticfreeliving #zerowastesolutions 📷 @rmandersoncreative )⠀#makeonechangeaugust2018
