My name is Devin and you have found the blog for the little green cleaning product company I started, The Optimist Co. 

When it comes to green living, we have a lot to be optimistic about. We can all learn from each other and, with a few small lifestyle changes, green up our lives. I believe green living can be easy and fun when we have a format to share ideas, talk about frustrations and hopefully inspire others to follow our green steps.

Become an Optimist! I am not perfect and sure don't expect anyone else to be. I went "green" by making my own cleaning products and turning that inspiration into a company to make that a little easier for everyone else. I am still trying to figure out a way to take both my kids grocery shopping and not forget the reusable bags! There are so many great products and ideas out there and this blog is my outlet to share these and also connect with others who share this passion. 

My company and this blog all got started when I began making my own cleaning products but I have learned so much more in the process. Green living has taught me to appreciate the little things in life more, be less wasteful, be more frugal, reduce clutter, eat more fresh food and build community. 

I hope you enjoy this blog - the good news and great tips there are to live more green. Have an idea, product or tip that inspires you? Please share and you just might end up featured in an upcoming post.

With JOY!
