It’s easy. All you need is things you already have.
One Part – brown sugar
It’s one thing to talk about global warming and saving the planet. But the truth is, it can feel so overwhelming to fix anything. But we must not get stuck in that feeling. And that’s why I love this idea.
The cold truth is, none of us needs to, or can, save the Whole Planet by ourselves. Clearly, this is a group effort. Remember the saying, Think Globally. Act Locally? That may really be a serious key to solving many problems we face on earth.
Rather than waiting for our respective governments to do anything, or for big businesses to fix it – we can, each of us, do small simple things that are pretty much FREE that make a difference.
And then what we get is a ripple effect. Except friendlier. What we can avoid is more storms like that one. Instead …
Each one of us, a tiny piece of a larger whole – acting more mindfully, trying something new, like this enzyme made from kitchen garbage, water and brown sugar.
What we get is a healthier body, household, community, planet.
And yes, the link has a great deal of Chinese in it…don’t let that throw you. There’s enough english and photos to make it pretty clear. And if you have questions – by all means, send them on. I’ll be looking into updating the text some to make the info even more accessible.
Drop us a line about how it goes.
