Green Life Dreams
LIVING LIFE IN CHICAGO WHILE MAKING AN IMPACT ONE LESS STRAW AT A TIME (and other ways).
- Dr. Jane Goodall
I'm Meagan... and I'm glad you're here!
That's me (obviously) and my husband/best friend/the one who keeps me sane (and also drives me crazy?). He's also probably the only one (until now...) who knows how much it bothers me when people on TV use empty cups and pretend there is something in them! But yet, here we are cheesin' with our empty (but CUTE) mugs.
Anyways, I started Green Life Dreams in early 2018 as a community to share ideas about reducing plastic use and making the planet a better place. At first I didn't know where to start. I mean if we are being honest ... its a pretty big and very overwhelming problem. I'm only one person. What difference can I make?
Then I heard about people skipping single use straws and realized that was something I could actually do. I could make a difference! Not only was I going to give up single use straws... but I was also going to convince other people to stop using them.
Once I stopped using single use straws, I started seeing that plastic has always been a big part of my life and I barely even realized it. Its not just my life... but my whole generation grew up like this. Plastic. Is. Everywhere.
Using less plastic and breaking life-long habits can be overwhelming. Don't worry, we can do it together one step at a time! I can't wait to see how much we can accomplish and how many bad plastic habits we can break together. Everyday we get the opportunity to make our community a better place with even the smallest changes.
