Through the transition from child onto the teenage years and becoming an adult, the word ECO was so foreign and I could have guessed it was French. I figured out there was nothing more healthier than my less planned lifestyle and trying to really eat a balanced diet of the 7 nutrients a day. The older I got, I realized the people I felt most comfortable with, those that had access to my inner circle of friends were somewhat different.
I started questioning myself what exactly connected us because one thing was for sure, it could not have been religion. Baptized and raised as a christian, my faith had always been strong, but I was never one of those ready to pounce on others and win converts. My inner circle was one without prejudice towards any religion or spiritual beliefs and we were different in the way we dressed, spoke and thought about life.
Then one day someone asked me if I was Eco-conscious and this word again came back to me. Who was this Eco? Was he friendly? Where would I find him? The answers only started coming back with the learning and the awareness opened a new door to something much more than just the food choices and clothes I wore.
