tears of green – a blog with the purpose of creating awareness on sustainable living and mindfulness
My name is Louisa Tonna. I’m a mum of two young boys and the founder of tears of green.
For as far back as I can remember, I have worried about the earth and its people and have become increasingly concerned by the environmental state of our planet. Watching David Attenborough’s documentary in 2020: ‘A Life on Our Planet’, was a wakeup call for me to really increase my efforts towards living more sustainably. It opened my eyes to what’s to come...a reality which we are already seeing unfold, but perhaps are unconsciously (or consciously) choosing not to see.
I believe that each and every one of us can make a difference, and the more we work together, the better the results will be. Education is key and by learning and increasing our understanding of the risks being posed, the better informed we’ll be and can take the right action. We can’t just sit still and wait for governments and policy makers to make change; it has to be a collective effort.
I know that we are running out of time and that much of the damage we’ve caused is irreparable, but I still have hope that we can slow down climate change and reduce the damage going forward. This is why I created tears of green. I use my time to learn as much as I can and communicate these findings to my readers, making changes in my own life as I go along. I am also getting to know some amazing people in the sustainable community and collaborating with them on little projects for change.
Mindfulness forms the core of my principles. tears of green explores living mindfully and the way in which it leads to living sustainably. Mindfulness is mainly about being in the present moment, self-care, enhancing our connection with nature, taking in our surroundings and appreciating what we already have: the world around us, our loved ones, and even our materialistic belongings. It is about living a slower, more conscious life. These things, among others, form the basis of leading a sustainable life...this is why I believe that mindfulness and sustainability go hand in hand. One intrinsically leads to the other.Visit tears of green at: www.tearsofgreen.com
