Welcome to Cream City Green!

There are BIG things happening in our little city.  So many companies, individuals, and NGOs are making waves and making Milwaukee a little greener, a little kinder, a little saner.  With SO many great things happening, it can be hard to keep track, let alone try to figure out where you fit in to the big picture!  

Here at Cream City Green, we'll discuss some of the BIG things happening here in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and our world.

We all want to lead a greener, simpler, kinder, saner life, and to make our mark on the world.  We're envious of those people who can do the BIG things: buy and run an organic farm... join the peace corps... adopt a child from a third world country... quit the corporate world for a non-profit job, or to stay home with the kids... live off the grid... donate half their salary to charity... live in a 500 square foot eco-home... backpack through Mongolia... there are people out there doing such amazing and big things, its easy to feel inadequate.

Instead of being intimidated by the BIG things others are doing, let's strive toward accomplishing the daily little things.  Like the butterfly effect, if we each flap our wings, however small, that breeze can turn into the winds of change and purpose.
In coming posts, I'll be writing about some of these little things that we can all do to lead us toward a life of purpose.  I'll share personal struggles (and accomplishments!).  I'll discuss the ideas of others, and some of the BIG things going on right here in Milwaukee.  Most of all, with you, we'll create a community to support each other on our journey... to lead a greener, simpler, kinder, saner life with meaning.
