Moving Along…

25 Mar

Hello friends. Thanks so much for supporting this blog over the last couple years. It’s been a LONG time since I’ve written here and I haven’t felt right about posting here for much longer than that. Within a year my thinking evolved a lot around the topics of consumerism, especially responsible/conscious consumerism, so the old content and title of this site are no longer relevant, and are even slightly offensive to my new perspective.

So I’m retiring it. Check out my new digs over at http://www.ASustainableMind.com where I’m allowing myself a lot of room to grow (literally & figuratively). A Sustainable Mind is primarily a space to discuss the mindset of sustainability. I’ve been considered (by others) to be a tree hugger for years and it was only when I reflected on my principles and realized that I truly AM passionate about the environment that I started taking conscious action to be eco-friendly. Before that it was just recycling because it was the right thing to do but I was still somehow disconnected. Now I believe that true & consistent sustainability starts with core beliefs and not just with individual actions.

I will also be interviewing sustainability enthusiasts on a regular basis starting in April. Writing at ASM is an exciting challenge and I hope you will join me. See you on the flip side!
