THE LIGHTER LIVING GUIDE

Resources for Elevated  Eco-Living in Asheville, NC

[Browse by Category]

 

These mountains are home. And since I am in the business of home-optimization, I wanted to create a list of my favorite businesses and organizations who contribute to my mission of simplicity  and sustainability.

Think globally, act locally! Together we can impact positive social change by promoting creativity over consumption, mindfulness over matter, and progress over perfection. Let's commit to put our money (and time) where it matters so that we can create a community of conscious, compassionate citizens who will serve and lead the way in serving the greater good and protecting the planet for generations to come.

Simplicity. Sustainability. Sensibility. These are the foundations of community, a happier you, and healthier planet!
