About Me

Quite simply, this blog documents my road to becoming a good human. It’s not easy being green. If you’re like me, you feel guilty all the time (or if you’re lucky, you’ll also feel really proud when you know you’re doing a good thing). I am constantly learning better ways of doing things, making better choices, changing old habits and questioning everything I do. If I can help even one person become a better human then I’m happy. If you would like to join me on my daily/monthly/lifetime challenges check out my weekly challenges and choose one (at a time) to follow. Baby steps.

I hope you enjoy reading this blog and take something with you!

Note: This blog was first started in 2011 but in 2017 I decided to wipe the slate clean and start again.

  1. Hello!

    I was absolutely delighted when I stumbled across your blog – it’s very informative and was the beacon of light I was looking for in Perth! I am moving from Austin, Texas (which is probably one of the most hippy/environmental cities in the US) to Perth and was scared I would not be able to find my green haven there. I have been to Perth in the past but have not experience the green side of it although I do know it’s present. Do you have any advice on what places/organizations to see? I will also be starting my job hunt so I would love to know of any green networking events that occur throughout the year. Thank you so much and keep up the great work! 🙂

    1. Glad you found the blog Portia!

      If you wanted to get into some green networking I would recommend: Living Smarties (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Living-Smarties-Fremantle/159461747432326), Perth Green Drinks (http://www.greendrinks.org//Perth), Perth Green Events (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Perth-Green-Events/169611719728687?ref=pb) or The Green Network (http://www.greennetwork.com.au/about).

      I also find that ‘liking’ local Perth companies on Facebook is a great start (they all support each other so you’ll hear about more and more companies eventually!) – check out my Facebook page and go to my ‘likes’ for a big list of great companies and places in Perth to visit! https://www.facebook.com/EcoEmpire

      Fremantle is definitely the mecca of green in Perth – heaps of great cafes and associations. Start with some raw pizza from the Raw Cafe at the Fremantle Markets and you’ll soon find more!

      1. Hello Kat,

        Thank you so much for your reply! Those links were very helpful – I can’t wait to get to Perth and start experiencing the eco-community! I would love to learn more about how you got interested in environmental issues (it’s always fascinating to hear how it all started for people) and what inspired you to write this blog! Do you have a preferred email list I can contact you by? Also, I see you are gluten free? I just recently started a gluten free lifestyle and am loving it!

        Cheers

  2. I love this, I’ve just launched my blog on wordpress and found yours. I think we have a similar approach to ethical fashion, and I wish you all the best with your blog 🙂
