I believe we can enjoy the earth without abusing it.
Both in my personal life and with my beloved Earthly Delight Soap, Co. I try and make the best decisions for living a morally conscientious life. While not perfect, being aware of our planet and our interactions with others, I believe, is enough to begin guiding us toward our own inner peace.
WOW! Did I just say that?
There is SOOOOOO much hoopla about living "Green". We are bombarded with it: Recycle this, buy that, do this, don't buy this, don't buy that, don't do this...etc. Everyone seems to know what is best for everyone else to do. There are a few problems, though, to doing all the recommended "green" things.
Information overload is problem #1.
For Example: "Electric stoves use less energy than those fueled by gas but usually cost more to operate due to the high cost of electricity. Stoves that rely on natural gas have an added benefit: natural gas emits only half the carbon of coal, none of the sulfur, and less nitrogen. Using a gas stove instead of one powered by coal-fired electricity does not add significantly to global warming." (Source of information) So, upon careful examination on whether to use Gas or Electric, I get a headache and don't know what to do!
Feasibility is problem #2.
For Example: Composting is Nature's way of turning waste into organic gold. It's a good thing...unless you live in an apartment on the 20th floor of a Chicago highrise.
Almost impossible is problem #3.
For Example: In our household we recycle almost everything! We dutifully carry our Bins of paper, tin, and plastic into the town's local recycle center (we live in the country and there is no pick up service). However, they do not take glass. Why? I don't know just yet. I keep meaning to find out the answer to why they don't take glass, I just haven't had the time. Does this mean I should feel bad when I pitch a glass container in the trash?
I believe everyone should do what they can when they can. Do your best and let go of the "EVERYTHING" that you are bombarded with on the internet and in the media.
We strive here at Earthly Delight to provide you with options for purchasing products that are the least damaging to our environment and you. Will we make a difference on the planet? I don't know, but it makes a difference to me and I believe that is what matters, just as I believe your decisions and lifestyle should matter to you and no one else. Just do what you can when you can - no guilt over that which you can't or choose not to do.
