Voluntary Simplicity

Christine Martin, 54, is a practitioner of "Voluntary Simplicity," which means that she makes her lifestyle as eco-friendly as possible. Martin particularly focuses on re-using as much as she can, including only furnishing her home with items from thrift stores as well buying locally. Since last January, she has participated in a family share with Terry's Berries so that she receives local and organic fruit and produce weekly. Alison Yin/The News Tribune
