I wish I could say that I was mindful of the environment when I was younger, but I wasn’t. I honestly didn’t even think about it. However, as I’ve gotten older, I’ve started to think about it a lot and have tried to make some changes. I’ve noticed that the older I’ve gotten, the more minimalistic I have become and the more aware I have become of my impact on this earth. It hasn’t been easy and I’m far from perfect, but I still try to do my part.
