Welcome! My name is Chelsea, and I live in the U.S state of Michigan with my fiancé Logan and our two dogs, Mia and Chala. Her Life Adventures was created in 2017 as a way to capture all my travel adventures. Like a digital scrapbook. I graduated from Oakland University with honors holding a Bachelor’s in Science Occupational Health & Safety degree. After graduation, I started my career and was working full-time with a car company. Over the years I held many different roles taking on more responsibilities. Which is how a business trip landed me in Japan for my very first international trip.
Since my visit to Japan, I’ve had an insatiable urge to explore as much of the world as I can. After that trip to Japan, I dedicated all my free time to traveling, planning adventures, and meeting up with my girlfriends in different cities across the country for weekend getaways. My favorite adventures quickly became exploring national parks and hiking!
During my adventures around the world, I began seeing the effects of climate change and how it is affecting the communities we visited. It’s heartbreaking to see. Villages in such severe droughts that you could see the lack of moisture in their cracked skin and dry red eyes. Dust whirled around in the air and small pebbles nipped at my face and arms. I won’t ever forget about that small, dried-up community. National parks ecosystems and animals that call them home are dying, with species becoming extinct at an alarming rate.
Today, the world is running out of time as the severity of climate change remains unaddressed by our world leaders. Their lack of action has put the communities they have sworn to protect in grave danger. I began researching how I can help and do my part to help save the planet with so much more to explore. Sustainability and zero waste practices soon became routine and are easier than people realize. Be sure to check out all my tips and favorite zero waste products to begin taking that first step towards a sustainable future.
