Oregon is DEFINITELY the "Land of Plenty"

I meant to share this back in June, but time got away from me, so here we are now.  The state of Oregon made the June issue of Martha Stewart Living and was labeled the "Land of Plenty."  I found that title and name very fitting for Oregon totally!  From the small businesses that offer more than you expect, like micro beer, to the handmade, local, and sustainable fruit, berry, and soap stands along the roads going north or south.  There is also little off-roads from the main highway were many go bicycling, mountain biking, four-wheeling, and even deep into the woods to streams where fisherman catch the biggest and best salmon.

The story talked of how great certain areas of Oregon are and what the state businesses have to offer and it went into detail about what cities off there best of the state's "Land of Plenty."  If you missed the June issue with this story, you can back order here.

Oregon is definitely the land of plenty when it comes to food and handmade/homemade goods.  Since moving up from Arkansas I have learned so much more about taking care of the planet, my family, and myself.  I try my best to pass on what I have learned by living here and I try to get my family and friends to live by the standard of a better quality of life.


From the salmon, berries, fruit, and waters, Oregon is definitely a great place to live, or even visit.  




There's so much to see and do here.  Oregon offers so much for those that want to get in touch with nature, or just to learn have to live a more pure, earth-friendly life to take back home with them.  

This almost sounds like an advertisement to visit Oregon, but I can't stress enough about how great this area of the United States is.  I've lived here for almost 9 years and I wouldn't change a thing that I've learned while living here.  When I do make the move back down south, I will truly, truly miss this area of the world and I am so very pleased that Martha Stewart Living covered the greatest parts that Oregon has to offer. 

 Oregon is like the best kept secret, and knowing the little areas and nooks and crannies where the goods are, is the best secret to take with me when I leave.

Eco-Tip:  The specialty drinks from places like Starbuck's and Dunkin' Donuts are costing you a fortune.  Why not take the money back and make your own specialty drink with fresh fruits, a splash of organic milk and a dash of sugar in the blender, or organic coffee with vanilla or other flavors.  The process of making things yourself will save you money and trim you waste line in the process.  Give it a try!  For this and other tips on living more green visit, The Earth and Me Go Green.
