Christy is an ‘environmental justice advocate’ who is a full-time student, full-time plant lover, full-time animal fanatic, full-time food lover, and full-time optimist (89% of the time). She lives in Tucson, Arizona with the heat and everything else the Sonoran Desert has to offer.
Okay, I don’t really have a person who narrates everything in my life, I think it just sounds cool to say things in third person (especially when you’re trying to describe yourself).
Basically, I’m passionate about environmental issues and how they intersect with social justice issues. Nature has intrigued me ever since I was young and it continues to do so every single day. I am also interested in learning how our relationships are intertwined with our environment and vice versa.
Since there isn’t a word for “someone who cares about trees, the rainforest, food justice, animal welfare, environmental justice, marginalized communities, and pretty much everything that has to do with the natural world” I just like to call myself an Environmental Social Justice advocate.
I get it. Most people don’t care too much about environmental justice problems, either because 1. It’s too depressing to think about, 2. They don’t have time to read lengthy articles about them, 3. Basic living necessities haven’t been met and worrying about environmental problems would be a privilege, or 4. They just don’t give a damn.
However, I hope here you can learn more about the interconnectedness of us and this planet we call home, explain why these are issues that we all should be aware of, and how we can take action (in a not-so-depressing-easy-to-understand way) or make small changes to live more sustainably. I will also share some of the things I have learned and love such as gardening, some of my plant-based recipes, some books that have inspired me, and some products that have never disappointed. Basically, I will share some of the things I am learning and doing in attempt to be ‘eco logical’.
I believe that being knowledgeable about what is happening around you in the world is more important than knowing what’s happening in the world of celebrities (or anything else that doesn’t have an impact on our well-being). After knowing what is happening around you, being an advocate, or making small changes in our lives, can actually have a great impact in this world — it’s never too late to start giving a fuck. Thank you for visiting my blog and I hope you continue to do so.
