Donald-McLeman Nature Holds the Key

Only the lucky few can live a fully natural life. For the rest of us it’s a journey, and I know I’ve still got a long way to go. Most of us live in towns and cities, surrounded by artificial environments and traffic congestion. Our lives are laid out under layers of electronics. As we become more and more dependent on the internet we risk becoming disconnected from nature and a natural pace of life.

Nature Holds the Key was developed to help you reach a more natural and greener life – a better way of living.

It starts with the simple choices we make in our daily life. Do we choose natural textiles or man-made fibre? Wooden bowls or plastic dishes? It’s these sorts of basic choices that bring us closer to a natural way of living.

Sea - Nature Holds the KeyI made a big choice. It took me a few decades but I left the London smog for the north of Scotland and a more natural way of life. From my window I can see the sea! Not everyone can make that leap but there are baby steps each of us can take wherever we are.

Nature Holds the Key is a place to find answers to the little questions (and maybe some of the bigger ones too). It’s for people striving to lead a more natural and eco-friendly life. Please check out our (very new) Facebook group too: Eco Ideascape.

Does that sound like you?

Please take a look around. Thank you for being interested!

I almost forgot – if you’re interested in the subject of blogging then I might mention it here, but very rarely!
