Literally, just don’t buy packaged produce.
A simple instruction:
reduce your trash
A complex question:
Why are we here?
Easiest Way to Reduce Your Trash by asking the Hardest Question. Who am I?
An easy, simple, straight forward, tangible act of switching a food shopping habit that can tremendously decrease your trash. Buy free floating produce or in other words don’t buy produce in plastic. Just say no to this tiny wasteful luxury of convenience we call a plastic bag. Next step. Buy more fresh produce, therefore less processed packaged foods. Which (in my humble opinion) equals healthier and simpler lives. But…why should we care? What does this have to do with who I am? Well that’s something us humans will always be searching for. Our purpose. I’ve learned a thing or two over the past few months (I’m not an expert, far from it actually), but it starts with something like this…
God blessed them and said to them, “Be fruitful and increase in number; fill the earth and subdue it. Rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky and over every living creature that moves on the ground.”
Genesis 1:28 NIV
What is our purpose big and small? What is YOUR calling?
Well I urge you to dive right into your soul to search it out. Don’t worry because Jesus is there right beside you rooting you on. We all have an incredible amount of potential, if only we go against what society tells us and let it loose. Is it a treacherous adventure? You bet! But also well worth it.In my short life, I have always had this underlying urge to care for the earth, physically and emotionally as well. I literally care about it and I want to take care of it. Makes sense? So here I am writing a blog and hopefully starting a chain of events in my life that aide in the cry out for change for our now and future home, planet earth. I am not saying that every human should find a career in caring for the earth, heck I don’t even do that right now (I’m a dental hygienist for Heavens sake-see what I did there?-but really.), but I do think that every human should care. And reducing your trash is one way to start. Join the movement with me, caring for the earth and finding a heavenly vocation. Where do you start? Well, to name a few: guidance from Jesus, the scriptures, various identity podcasts, professors, counselors, friends, family, books and more! I would like to give thanks to and also highly recommend the book Garden City by John Mark Comer and to Van City Church’s series on Identity and Calling at Vancity.church/teaching specifically the teaching on Genesis 1v26-28
How did the conversation about trash turn into an identity? That’s my brain in a nutshell! Clear as mud? Thought so. Cya next time Vancouverites. Thrillseekers. blog searchers, internet surfers.
I seem to always try to pitch an Anchorman worthy send off..picture me winking and giving the side body finger point as I say it..one will catch on one of these days…
