One Planet Life (OPL) is a socially conscious enterprise dedicated to bringing human centered tools to individuals to live better lives connected to nature. We aim to be your trusted source, no ads, only information, inspiration, and tools to assist in joyful actions.
The actions we take today have a significant impact on our future.
Every small change we make can add up over time, creating a ripple effect that can influence the world around us. When we choose to live sustainably and in harmony with the planet, we are choosing to create a better tomorrow for ourselves and for future generations.
One of the most impactful actions we can take is to reduce our carbon footprint. It is the reason we developed the One Planet Life app — to give you a tool to measure your actions to reduce your carbon footprint one metric ton at a time.
Reducing your carbon footprint is easier than you may think. This can be achieved through simple changes such as using public transportation, walking or biking instead of driving, or using energy-efficient appliances. We can also reduce our waste by choosing reusable products and recycling whenever possible.
Another way we can make a difference is by supporting sustainable practices in our communities. This can be done by buying locally produced goods, supporting businesses that prioritize sustainability, and participating in local initiatives focused on environmental conservation.
It’s important to remember that every action we take, no matter how small, has an impact. By making conscious choices and encouraging others to do the same, we can create a more sustainable and harmonious future for ourselves and for generations to come. Let’s take action today and create a brighter tomorrow.

One Planet life was born to join us together to make a difference for you, me, we, and the living planet
The idea for One Planet Life started over 20 years ago. My name is Lorie Buckingham. I am the founder of One Planet Life, LLC. While busy living my life (wife, mother, and executive), I had a growing sense that the world was off-center. At my core, I love people and the planet. Our lives and the living planet are connected, but so many activities do not take this into account. I started to wonder, could my experience be leveraged to make the world better?
As humans, we all share the same dreams, struggles, and connections to people and the planet.
Let me share a bit about myself with you, professionally and personally. My professional experience consists of 30+ years in technology leadership roles for Fortune 100 companies. I have been fortunate to work for impressive companies in many sectors along with fabulous people around the world. It was incredible to be a part of teams of people working together to achieve lofty goals. I developed a deep appreciation for the diversity of ideas and the similarities of all people.
On the personal front, I love my family, friends, science, and reading. Learning has helped me see through our noisy, commercial world. Starting by exploring the journey of our food, I read labels and research. It led to an understanding of the chemicals in our food and how they might harm my family.

It was shocking to me. It was hard to get accurate information.
There was an obtuseness to information and lots of dubious information to drive purchases. I was asking simple questions.
Where was this tomato grown? What chemicals were sprayed on it?
It was almost impossible to get any information. But as my children know (and they did not always like it), I focused on fresh food, local food, and unprocessed food. The journey for information continued because knowledge is power. At the same time, I continued to read about the environment and the impact on people. I also love our planet and want it protected for all of us, but I did not know what to do. Over time, I began to work to reduce my carbon footprint. Starting small, I have been decreasing it more each year. I continue to work on my journey to live a sustainable lifestyle.
