In this blog post, I talk about the not-so-aesthetic side of a sustainable lifestyle, how social media “inspiration” can affect someone first starting out, struggles & confusions for a new low-waster, the influence a lifestyle change can have on friends & family, and accessibility/availability of maintaining a sustainable lifestyle.

Over 60% of food thrown away every year could be avoidable, but our society continues to consume food in an unsustainable manner. Where can we improve? We need to stay educated, understand the importance, and develop ideas to consume food more sustainably.

It should not be taken for granted especially when others around the world struggle from hunger every day.
