From transportation to housing to the foods we eat, everything affects our environment.  And if you live the usual “modern” life, chances are just about everything you do has a detrimental effect on Mother Earth.

But each small step we take to change our habits can be like a water droplet that creates ripples that grow into other areas of our lives as well as into the lives of those around us.

In this episode, Marianne and I share a few small changes each of us can make to get started on the path to a more sustainable life.
