“Waste” is an anomaly. There is no away in creation; humans are the only species to think up such a thing.
Going zero-waste is an overarching direction in the Coyle-Carr household. We have been working toward sending less to the landfill and decreasing our need for recycling for several years, learning all sorts of creative skills, tips, and crafts along the way.
But as I explored in a recent post, a life that makes “zero” waste in the society in which I live is impossible, which can be disappointing and discouraging if individualistic perfection is what we are after. In the journey toward ecological well-being I have found that perfection is not helpful. Further, it ain’t even the goal.
I want to make less waste and more life!
The goal is to love. And love is the long labor of a lifetime.
Here are some specific ways I hope to press on in love this year.
