I am instituting a change in the camp today. If there are less than 15 people to cook for, we will use regular bowls, plates and cups. I was getting concerned about the fact that a case of paper plates that were non recycled were being burned every day. It means more work for me as the cook but I stand behind what I believe. And want to walk the talk.
I want to be a part of a shift in how we express and appreciate beauty. For example, growing up, I was taught that being thin was really important. It has been amazing to look at this as a grown up - the impact it has had on me has been tremendous. But thinness is not the only weird thing we strive for impossibly. That's why I love the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty, not only because it is a huge initiative by a skin care cosmetics company, but because the people behind it seem to genuinely want to shift the way we see beauty.
