Factors that can undermine your low-footprint efforts

Over the years, I’ve noticed several factors that can obstruct even the most determined effort to reduce one’s footprint. A few examples:

  • Debt
  • Health issues (either mental or physical)
  • Relationship troubles
  • A job that’s making you miserable
  • Family members who aren’t interested in this path, or are even outright opposed
  • Housemates, same

What would you add to this list?

I say “CAN” obstruct. With creativity and planning, and support from likeminded people, you can get around the obstacles or even turn them into assets. I share some tips in my book, and also on this blog. And will continue to do so.

Coming up soon, posts on finances and health as they relate to low-footprint living.
