Mariska Nell

We are in July!! July for me usually means Plastic Free July and making sure I change some of my own habits during the month. This year I had a few items that I have not yet found great alternatives for and decided I will take them on for the month and see if I can go without having to purchase cheese, milk, cream or yoghurt packaged in single-use plastic. Halfway through the month and I had already been a failure, but for sure learning out of this.

During this episode, I share with you my struggles and some solutions that I have found. I also share with you some tips that can help you with your own Plastic Free July journey.

In this episode, I am sharing with you some of the questions that I have been getting from you amazing crazy birds and I will be answering them. We had some great questions and please do keep them coming. I talked about feeling like the weight of the world is on your shoulders and how a quote from Jane Goodall (one of my ultimate heroes) is always often stuck in my mind and how this quote has affected many of the choices I make daily.

“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you.⁠ ⁠What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make” – Jane Goodall

I also share a few amazing people and organization’s that inspire me to continue every day. I also take a look at the Amazon fires and what we can do to help out where we are.
