Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying "I will try again tomorrow". --Mary Anne Hershey
This month's challenge towards more sustainable living: Travel and Transportation.
We are fortunate that in our small town there is a lot that is within walking distance. And so we usually walk to the library, shopping, church... even our dentist is a short walk away. TJ takes the train to Oslo during the week, and there are good public transportation options here.
Our biggest stumbling block with transportation though, is our trips to the US to visit family. Those air miles are a heavy carbon footprint that we are very much aware of! We have plans to fly over for Christmas. Though, we have had a flight-free year so far...
One thing doesn't always cancel out another, but better intentions and actions are a collective good. Last month's Plastic Free July felt like a failure... it was hard! But we try... So we just try to make the best choices, do good... and keep walking! ;)
Do you have a special project or focus for this month, or for the year? Do you have any tips or ideas to share?!
