Hello, and welcome to our on-line home!
The bit about us bit….
We are an average family with a developed environmental conscious, there’s me Charlie, my partner and our two daughters. My partner is a holistic therapist with a busy practice, the girls are at school, and me? Well I work full time, run my own on-line Vintage store, and look after this website.
This doesn’t leave us much time to be to be at the forefront of eco-change, or whatever the latest term is, but just because we aren’t labelled, and don’t go on protests doesn’t mean we don’t care about, and want to protect our planet. It means we are like a large chunk of the population getting by in post austerity Britain, and doing what we can to work with rather than against the environment, and our bodies.
So what is living gentler all about?
In short living gentler is about finding easy, cost neutral, sustainable ways of reducing our impact on the environment, improving our diet and health. We will use less plastic, shop locally, reduce our carbon footprint, and look for sustainable alternatives while attempting to not spend extra money doing so! To find out more take a look at our ‘About’ page.
We intend to track our journey on here, we welcome comment and suggestions that fit with our philosophy, and ideas for us to try. This site is non-political and is unsponsored, our views are our own. We will comment on environmental stories that we feel matter to us or we think are interesting.
