Jordan Smith is a designer working to bring sustainability into each aspect of life. Smith's New Year's resolution in 2018 was to reduce her carbon footprint and live a zero-waste lifestyle, which set the ball rolling to many other realizations and discoveries.
Her current goal is to form an intersectional community through meetups focused on a low waste lifestyle, travel, and interiors while supporting local businesses and creatives.
"I want to create a space where people can come together and reconnect with the real world. I think our society has created this warped view on convenience - which is important, but it has taken priority in all realms and that is where we see the issue," says Jordan, "the beauty in convenience is that it comes from an idea of luxury, which takes time."
No person is perfect, this world is not perfect, there will always be flaws and life isn't always convenient. Try something more environmentally friendly today. Every bit counts. Your first step, twentieth step, or millionth step could help someone else take a step too. We are all in this together, whether we wanna be or not, so let's do this. Hold your friends accountable (in constructive ways) and ask them to do the same for you. We are all learning!
