Our ABC of Simple, Sustainable Living

Our ABC of Simple Living? It’s about getting back to the basics. At year’s end, most of us tend to look back at what we’ve done. And we look forward, hoping to do better in the coming year. Maybe like us, you are trying to move toward a simpler, more natural life. Only to find you keep getting sidetracked? Or sort of lost along the way? It’s easy to do.

And that’s why we’ve formulated an ABC of Simple Living, as our guide! We look at as simple living baby steps! And by whittling it down to some basic guidelines, we hope it will serve as a reminder to help us try harder. Sometimes it’s just a matter of having guidelines.

Simple concise goals that are easy to remember. And that help us take baby steps. Giant leaps often make a pace that’s hard to keep up with. But baby steps? Well, even babies manage them, don’t they?

Our baby steps? They start with learning the ABCs!
