Welcome to Healthy People, Healthy Planet. If you are interesting in leading a healthy, sustainable life and saving money while doing it, you have come to the right place. The primary focus here is to achieve exactly what is in the title: a healthy planet, populated by healthy people. Personal and planetary health are intimately linked; many actions that are better for the planet, are also healthier for you, and vice versa.
While it may seem like a daunting task to move from a conventional life to a healthier, more sustainable lifestyle, you will soon find that with the right resources, it can be incredibly easy. Join me as we replace hygiene supplies and cleaners with homemade versions, reduce waste, learn about food sensitivities, and in general try to live better. It is easier than you think!
I will also occasionally focus on money saving and budget tips. Doing all of this doesn’t have to be expensive, and in some ways it can even save money. I hope this part of my blog will help with any hesitations start up costs may cause.

My name is Chloe and I am a 22-year-old college student. I am majoring in biology and Latin and plan to continue on to pharmacy school. I am engaged to a wonderful man named Will, who you will see me reference occasionally. In the summer of 2012, I became very interested in living “green,” and once I got the ball rolling, it just kinda snowballed from there. When I’m not at school, I live with my parents in an average house in an average, Midwestern suburb. I want to show people that anyone can make small changes to not only save the planet, but to also improve your personal health.
