Welcome to Mossy Life

What is Mossy Life and who am I? I am an average UK raised woman in her mid (OK late!) 30s who has a passion for the natural world and tries to balance looking after the environment with the needs of my family in an ever changing world. Until recently family consisted of my two loving dogs Molly and Lilly plus a supportive husband, as well as a wonderful network of parents, in-laws, grandparents and friends. Recently our family has extended to include a beautiful little baby boy who has given me a nudge into re-evaluating priorities in life and ask myself questions about what I can do to make his future generation have a better world to live in.

Having worked for over 15 years in environmental education, I have had the pleasure of being surrounded by like minded colleagues who care for our natural world. But since branching out into new employment away from this core focus, and starting our own wonderful family I am surprised at how many people don’t know how easy it is to make simple lifestyle changes that help our environment – without breaking the bank, or changing our complete way of living.

Awareness of environmental issues is increasing with the emergence of some amazing young people who are succeeding at getting press coverage and political interest. Yet even if the interest is there, many of us struggle to know how can we as individuals can make a difference day to day.

Join me on a journey to love our environment and learn how we can all help. I don’t promise we will be perfectly green in every aspect of life, but we can certainly make a difference by making small easy changes along the way.

Moss up your life and help our beautiful planet thrive for future generations.
