Welcome to Climate 52

I have a lot of feelings about the climate crisis, and my role in it. This is my attempt to turn those feelings into action.

Climate 52 is one Midwestern mom’s attempt to make lifestyle choices that, if widely adopted, can help heal our planet. I’ve made a lot of changes over the past year to reduce my family’s environmental impact, but wanted to do something a bit more structured and deliberate to hold myself accountable.

Why am I doing this?

  • Because I want my kids to inherit a planet that is still habitable well past their lifetimes.
  • Because I’ve been feeling like nothing I do as an individual will make a difference.
  • Because I want to get out of my comfort zone and do something hard.
  • Because I want to inspire others to do the same.

Each week, I will focus on one change that is believed to positively impact the planet. Through the process, I will find out how difficult or easy of a change it is to make, and whether it’s something I can commit to for the long-term.

That’s really it. Follow along, and let me know what you think I should do next week at climate52challenge@gmail.com.
