green family

Can a family lead a sustainable life?

I recently got into an argument – I had to explain why I ate organic food and why I tried to lead a better life – and the conclusion of the people I was talking with is because I don’t have kids.

They were saying that when you have a family you have to spend a lot more money on food and that it’s complicated to recycle,¬†so for them it seemed impossible to buy organic or to change the way they lived.

Most of the times I try to explain that there are solutions for everyone and at every level Рbut this time though I thought I would waste my time.

Instead, I did a research on blogs that are about families that live sustainable lives, because I was sure it was possible.

Here’s what I found, starting with my favorite blog:

These are just a few of the many many families that chose to live differently, of course.
