Hi, I’m Andrea; a kindergarten/first grade teacher living in sunny California, married, with two boys. I love to spend time with my family, enjoy nature, and travel as much as possible.
And as of late…
My 2015 New Year’s resolution was to live “zero waste”, but as soon as I began making changes, I was like, This should be called *Near*-O waste because ZERO is pretty much impossible!
Our family of four has undergone a major year-long transition full of trial-and-error, and we’re finally living very close to “zero”. We’ve adopted minimalism along the way, and have simplified our life, taking away the obsession with stuff, and focusing on family and enjoying the precious time we have together. We hope our lifestyle will teach our children how to be healthy, how to take care of the planet, and how to value love and adventure over material possessions.
I’m completely passionate about our lifestyle and all its amazing benefits, both for our family and the earth. I started small, then I couldn’t stop! I love to write about our adventures, and I invite you to read about them on my blog and Facebook page. You can also contact me via email at email@example.com.
3, 2, 1, Near-O!
