WHAT WE DO, AT A SNIFF
We each wield power in everyday choices, but most choices are second nature: which often means we’re putting nature second, or third... The Sustainable Fox empowers making more decisions consciously using an intersectional lens, and connects folks with desire to operate more sustainably with tools to do so.
Over the past years, I've been on a journey learning to live (my ever evolving version of) a sustainable life. These days, this way of living frequently brings me joy and satisfaction! Getting here, I experienced frustration, disappointment, shame, and hopelessness.
My eco-obsession started with reducing my garbage waste. This began in earnest when my fox-brother challenged me to the Glass Jar Challenge: one month of putting all our trash in a jar. I won the challenge, but we both gained something greater. Since then, the way I see and think, and why I make the choices I do has changed drastically - along with the size of my trash bin.
Living a low waste life is easy! Switching to a low waste life takes practice, the right resources, and a fox hole full of positivity... I'm here to help you navigate that path!
Sadie, The Sustainable Fox
Most obstacles to sustainable living are expectations and systems we live with: chosen or not. So...
We work with businesses to make sustainable actions easier in common spaces, connect with individuals to empower sustainable choices day to day, and provide community education on the intersectionality of environmentalism.
When we change: society changes.
To prioritize environmental wellbeing through an intersectional lens and destigmatize interacting with our waste (thinking/talking about, as well as handling waste) by: removing entry point stigma (respecting where folks are at), spreading environmental and waste awareness (sharing language), connecting folks to local resources (building access), and connecting community (social support).
