Favorite green websites/publications:

Green Options of course but also... Grist, Inhabitat, Inhabitots, freshome, ecofabulous, The Alternative Consumer, Light Green Stairs, and way too many more to list. See the following link for a list of all my current reads: http://www.growingagreenfamily.co...

I think the most important environmental issue is:

I'm partial to issues that affect families as a whole, green architecture and design, eco weddings, green beauty, healthy living and getting kids outside. Mainly I'm interested in getting people on board with green living in ways that work for them. Small steps add up.

The greenest thing I do is:

Raise my son Cedar green. One of the smartest things we can do is inform the next generation.

Why am I passionate about being green?

Anyone can go green with just a little support. It's so easy nowadays to get that support, why not go green?

About Me

I'm a freelance writer / problogger, mainly in the eco-genere, mama to a killer nine-year old son (Cedar), and unschooling and free school advocate. In my free time I like road trips (NOT so eco-friendly so it's a downfall), music, books, Frisbee, and I drink far more coffee than should be allowed by law.
