Why is it that when you become a parent there are so many things you which never previously concerned you that you suddenly begin to consider? For me, I want to care about my health for my child but also the earth so that he has a healthy world that he can grow up in.
The environment has always been something I have taken for granted, it was never my problem, but suddenly I had a child and I realised what a self-centered outlook that is. I have a carbon footprint? I have created that, so why isn’t making things better my responsibility?
April 22nd is Earth Day and I am excited to get outside. Since having a baby, the unimaginable has happened and I have become an ‘outdoorsy’ girl I love taking Rory out on long walks, going to the park and playing in the garden – Earth Day is giving me a great excuse to spend the day in the great outdoors – now fingers crossed for some good weather.
