Sustainable living boasts no boundaries. You don’t need massive amounts of acreage or even a fenced-in backyard. We may not be 100 percent sustainable in our lifestyle, but we can become more in-tune with our environment and conscientious of our actions. Like all aspects of life, it’s about balance, finding ways to live a greener, cleaner life within the parameters of your current lifestyle. Top blogger for country living, Rural Mom, shows us the (actually very easy) way to live a sustainable lifestyle without making ourselves crazy in the process. Why does even Jennifer Aniston raise chickens in the Hollywood Hills? Easy answer, it is extremely cool to raise your own hens, eat the organic eggs and lie back on feather beds from your own brood. And what about you? What initially drew you to the idea of raising chickens, organic gardening, and incorporating more sustainable living practices into your lifestyle? Are you interested in saving money, eating a more healthy diet, being on trend, going more "green,” or saving the planet one plant at a time? Whatever the reason, the good news is all of the above motivators are real, tangible end-results of sustainable living.
