It started with me being just absolutely disgusted when I found out for myself that all these big words you can't pronounce on ingredient labels turned out to be all just poison and drugs. It took a long time to research the chemicals, one by one, and cross referencing each one a few times to make sure, and then finding out what they do to us as humans. After that, it was actually pretty easy to give everything up cause I was so mad at these companies and the government For allowing that to happen.
i would suggest to start an outdoor garden, first and foremost, and get used to growing vegetables and fruits. ( and talk about it a lot, it's easy to do and believe it or not, gardening is contagious) since I started my gardens, my neighbours on both sides of me have installed them as well. Then if you have the money to get a few lights for growing, they are relatively cheap. I went with aquaponics because it's a mix between aquaculture and hydroponics. The good thing about aquaponics is its a closed sustainable system, meaning all you need is the initial start up cost and after that, all you should spend money on after that is seed varieties, which you won't need to buy after a few years because you will learn to harvest your seeds. If you look up aquaponics, it may seem difficult, it's really not. Start a fish tank , add the fish, let them sit in the fish tank for about a month , and then that fish tank water is basically used to feed your growing plants. You will need to know a few things about crude construction, but it's easy, really.
Get rid of all your cleaning supplies, laundry detergent, shampoos, soaps, bounce sheets, All of them! They are poison..... all of them. Bare minimum, vinegar and water is a great cleaner. And find a good body soap and hand soap. "Live clean " is a brand that seems to be very good, but slightly expensive. I even gave up using deodorant, I use fresh lime juice instead. The acid in the lime may be sensitive to some. It's a deodorant, not an antiperspirant, so it doesn't get rid of the sweating. ( I think anything that suppresses sweat probably isn't good anyways. Deodorant contains a form of aluminum, that you then rub right by your lympnodes....everyday..... and we wonder why we get weird diseases.)
It sounds like a lot, and I'm still not done, I'm constantly educating myself on new chemicals, and what they do and how persistent they are in the environment. My next move is to start moving off the grid, so in my 10 year plan (if we have 10 years left) I want a windmill and solar panels hard wired in my house and an old school wood stove. I have a pretty massive storage of carbs, and in the last year I've started pickling beets, cucumbers etc. And bottling them.
Just do things step by step. cant do everything overnight.
