Helping someone else

I have had the opportunity to meet a lot of different people through the different positions I have had. One individual who stands out was a young mother who had gotten herself out of an abusive relationship. She was going back to school when I met her. Working extremely hard to learn what she needed to get a career that would sustain her family. She was also living in a women’s shelter. Thinking of her gave me my idea for how I could help someone else be more sustainable.
I received new dishes for Christmas, the old ones have been sitting in my basement. I took them to a women’s shelter this week. They will hopefully help someone else get out of a very unsustainable situation and move on. Only then can they think about being sustainable socially and environmentally.

About Peyto

I am passionate about making science, sustainability, and sport accessible through engaging information and activities. Peyto is a reference to Bill Peyto who was an outfitter, trapper, and eventually a park warden in Banff National Park. Peyto Lake and Peyto Glacier are both named after him. He is also a distant relative of mine.
