Crunchy Peace Peace Hippy Chick

Peace Family!

I have been off from work for 2 days now, I still have 2 more days to go. I managed to screw up my sleeping patterns to the degree where I have a lot of time in the middle of the night to search the net. As of late my chosen distraction is self sustainable/frugal blogs. Basically white folks who are handling their business saving money on simple, ordinary, daily things.

The reason these things appealed to me is because there are somethings I never considered making, and I like the idea of having control over the things in my cipher. Meaning I avoid processed and packaged items (not just food). You just don't know what's in them. Let me give you an example....

I don't eat swine. I don't think its cool to have any kind of relationship with swine. So I stopped acquiring new leather (leather isn't necessarily cow skin), I don't use a boar bristle brush nor do I use regular soap. I'm a vegetarian and righteous so I don't think I have to tell you that I don't eat it either. But what of washing powder? It cool to avoid on every level but wash your clothes in it? Hmmm... Until now, it was the one thing I was clueless on how to remedy.

Not anymore. I have found blogs that tell you how to make homemade laundry soap. And you can make it vegan. WTF? Oh, I'm excited.

Not only excited but pumped up to do more to become more self sustainable. Original people especially in this wilderness of North America have become a group of consumers. We will spend our gold on a lot of obvious stuff ignoring the high prices of little things that keep us in bondage. Well, not this Earth.

I already have another blog here at blogspot that deals with my efforts to lower my carbon footprint. It's called Righteous Urban Crunch. While searching the various blogs, I noticed that there weren't any that I came across of Original people being self sustainable. If I have to go 1st, so be it. I ain't scurred. I know from personal experience that Original people have been self sufficient for years. I sew, I can, I tried the garden thing; this I can handle. I'd appreciate some company in the journey, though.

See you there!
