Hey, Green Junkie!
The other day I posted this quote on Instagram.
“Don’t feel guilty when you forget your bags or coffee
mug or water bottle or buy something fast fashion.”
In my attempt to help my community feel less guilty about not being perfect in their sustainable lifestyles, I hit a nerve.
I got messages and comments that were appalled at my message and couldn’t believe I wouldn’t WANT people to feel guilt or shame about not making green choices all the time. They couldn’t believe I wouldn’t want to use guilt as a motivator to make people take action.
And sorry, not sorry, this is just NOT how I operate.
I’ve been on both sides of this issue and I truly don’t believe that guilt or shame is an effective tool or motivator for change. It just causes harm.
So in today’s episode I wanted to address this and share my side of the story and encourage you to give up the guilt and shame and be green without all the guilt.
In this episode we will discuss,
You’ll discover that and so much more in this episode.
By the end of this episode, Green Junkie, you’ll be able to confidently live more green without the fear of failure. None of us are perfect, embrace and celebrate what you can do and leave the rest.

Your green bestie,
