Welcome to Eco Misfits
We are Kaya, Will and Matilda-Niamh. We’re a normal family from the UK who decided to take a journey towards sustainable living!
Having a baby can change the way you think about life. For instance, when Matilda-Niamh was born, we began thinking about the world beyond our own lifetimes. As a species, we create an incredible amount of waste and pump a lot of pollution into the air. We also exploit the privilege of having access to our planet’s natural resources. In short, we consume too much, and our appetites are taking a toll on our home.
- You know about climate change and the destruction of habitats.
- You’ve seen the protests from Greta Thunberg and groups like Extinction Rebellion.
- Unnecessary packaging and your own energy consumption have bothered you.
It can feel like sustainable living is a big commitment that requires a huge lifestyle change. Surely, those protestors you see on TV are all outsiders living an alternative lifestyle, right? WRONG!
The reality is that there are countless little changes you can make. Moreover, they aren’t life-changing, and you don’t have to make them all. But every change you make is a contribution to the cause. For this reason, we have created Eco Misfits as a way of helping ordinary folk identify changes they can make.
Follow our journey and we’ll tell you about the things we’ve tried. We’ll let you know what’s easy to implement into your life and what isn’t. You’ll see how the changes we’ve made have brought us joy, frustration or something in between. Above all, our journey is not radical or hugely alternative – it’s simple, fun and rewarding!
