Last week, I was fortunate enough to shoot with Christy Beck of Model Environment, a website dedicated to stewardship of the Earth through environmental awareness. Below is a repost of her blog. Thanks, Christy!
Gia: I try really hard to live my ethics and leave as small a footprint as I can. Like Helen Keller said, “I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something.” I bring my reusable bags–and have used them religiously for the past 10 years–to every store. I buy organic (always for the Dirty Dozen), use a grocery list on my phone to save paper, use digital coupons, and consider a product’s packaging before buying it. My cats use compostable cat litter made from fallen pine needles. My kitchen is meat free, and all my dairy/eggs are organic. I also use organic make-up and hair products. I look out for phantom power, and I also do everything I can to buy used products, especially clothes.
