So this is a voyage a little into the unknown...
I'm starting out as a single mum of five kids in a post-industrial town in north east England. My life is pretty green - I work for an environmental charity, I'm a partner in an organic salad business and I do some 'tread lightly' gardening. And on the whole, I live pretty sustainably by most people's standards. But it doesn't feel like enough. There are so many changes I'd like to make, taking little steps forward towards, ultimately, off grid, minimal impact living.
I guess if I can get there, against the odds, then there are others who can take what I learn along the way and travel with me. So this is an adventure that I hope you'll share. Learn from my mistakes, gain spirit from my successes, and above all, join me on the journey.
Treading Lightly is simple living, within your means and the means of the planet, and making a minimal impact on the Earth. Find out more here about Catherine, of Barefoot Solutions, does this from day to day.
