green with inspiration

I first heard of Artist As Family on a day that had completely gotten me down in the dumps with well, pretty much everything.  Mass consumption, global environment woes, and a lengthy list of 100 other kinds of thoughts. I certainly had the ‘green blues’ that day.

Then up popped this amazing blog that had me breathing in hope, light and general excitement. I was so delightfully happy I couldn’t help but tell anyone and everyone that crossed my path that day, of this amazing journey this family I had just ‘found’ was embarking on.

In January this year they finished their epic journey riding from Daylesford, Victoria to Cape York, Queensland and back again. Living on mostly free foraged food, they cycled with two kids on the back, the cutest little dog on the front and countless people like me following along online with their story.

Later on in the year their book will come out, and I seriously. Can. Not. Wait.

(I dare you not to be inspired by reading their blog.)

Here’s a list of a few other people that combine their day to day workings with a rockin’ blog as well. All green tinged, and all inspiring for so many different reasons. Sit down, have a read. You’ll be so glad you did.

Kirsten, Nick and the Milkwood crew- inspiring people with their knowledge sharing and courses that encourage life skills.

Mel from Coal Valley View– watch this space as their amazing farm transforms.

Tricia from Little Eco Footprints– honesty and shared knowledge, that there is a beautiful combination.

James from The Upcyclist– upcycled furniture and tiny houses…all so damn good!

Pip from Meet Me At Mikes– Ethical Fashion pledge…everyone should be doing this. Everyone.

How about you, want to share in the comments a green tinged blog that you love?

  1. What a fantastic experience for everyone in that family. I love how they foraged their own food (couldn’t do it myself; would probably starve) and the fact they took the dog is just adorable xx
