At Insteading, sustainability is one of our core values. It is always in the back of our minds with everything we do. Whether we’re gardening, shopping for new kitchen and garden supplies, or taking care of our chickens, everything we do is with a sustainability mindset. By taking advantage of composting, recycling, and upcycling we reduce our waste and bring new life to things that would otherwise end up in a landfill.
We like to encourage our readers to garden and raise chickens in a way that is not destructive but rather encourages healthy soil and plants. Eliminating the use of pesticides, practicing no-till, and implementing crop rotations are just a few sustainable practices we can implement in our gardening. As for daily life, only buying things we really need and are that of sustainable materials reduces our waste and saves money.
