When Brian and I first met I was in a bit of a self-revolution. I had just began a shift in my home. I made it a goal to eliminate unnecessary waste and to become more conscious with my dollar. At first it started with monitoring my use of plastics...
... then I learned about how agriculture impacts our land...
... as I got the ball rolling I realized I wanted to stop supporting companies that sold products with excess packaging, mysterious ingredient listings, imported ingredients, synthetics, crops that used too much water, crops that caused cartel activity, then what about the pesticides.. jeeeeezzz... maybe I should just start making things myself?
I began to experiment making homemade beauty, homemade cleaning products and practicing how to traditionally preserve and produce my foods. The beginning of Sam's Wellness blog.
I thought: to keep my home sustainable I want to be less reliant on others to create things FOR me.
How simple were things were before commercialism and industrialism? These thoughts motivate me to try new things & write about it.
While I am passionate about experimenting, I understand others are not. This is why I am compiling our winning recipes and natural homemaking ideas for others to skip right to success.
I love feeling good about my ecological footprint and in control of my own health.
It is my goal for you to enjoy this website because the more curious, the bigger a ripple can grow!
