You can enjoy life to the fullest

There is no doubt that scientists, doctors and wellness practitioners alike will tell you that if you want to be happy, you have to go outside. The benefits of spending time outdoors are infinite for your mind, body and soul.

You can grow your own food


As the price of food goes through the roof, greenies enjoy getting their hands a little dirty and planting their own little gardens at home. Even if they fill pots with soil and seeds, they get immense joy in harvesting their own fresh food. Oh ya- it’s organic and it costs next to nothing.

You can pick out ethically sourced products and eco-fabrics


There is so much hype now over the chemicals used to both produce and dye fabrics that we use in our day lives. Our clothes, our bedding, our accessories. Greenies enjoy healthier fabrics that were made from sustainable sources in safe non-sweatshop environments.

You can learn about nature


How often do you take the time to go outside and look around you at all of the little creatures that live near you. In the park by your house do you even know what kind of animals go there? There is so much to learn within your own little neighborhood.

You can recycle, reduce, reuse!
