What is Living Lime?

There’s a lot of hype surrounding the concept of “living green” these days. Living green is a great idea, but Living Lime is more than that. Living Lime is living the best that you can.

The world is sometimes a depressing place. Our leaders are slow to lead, big corporations seem to have all the power, and it’s easy to get discouraged into thinking that nothing that we do matters. The answer? Stop looking at what everyone else is doing wrong and just live the best that you can. With passion. It’s all you can do, really.

For me, Living Lime means growing my own food and learning to preserve it. It means buying local. It means making clothing and items out of repurposed materials so I consume less. It means contributing to my community, through arts and other activities. This blog is a place to find ideas and inspiration for Living Lime. Gardening advice, seasonal recipes, craft ideas, and community initiatives. There are a lot of reasons to be inspired.

    I just watched this – I think you should to. It’s hard to watch some of it – but I think EVERYONE should. It’s not all bad. It’s a beautiful and terrifying documentary about how bad things have gotten with our way of life.

    It just focused my thinking on some things, and strengthened my desire to live better and more sustainably.

    Dear Living Lime,

    It is so great to see an informative blog such as yours that falls in line so closely with the values The David Suzuki Foundation holds. I find your website so perfect. When there is so much information out there on “green living” it can get quite confusing. I am so glad to be able to have a one stop informative site such as yours on my list!!

    Kind Regards,
    Christine Bracaglia

      If they’ve taken it down, I’m afraid you’ll have to try to find it yourself 😦 Try your local library.
