What are you searching for? A new wrinkle cream, a better veggie burger or even a kitchen remodel? Yep, I get it. I’m always looking for something. I want it to be great, and it also has to be a good choice for the planet. So I do a lot of research. After years of searching for the best earth-conscious stuff, I started EarthyB.com so I can share what I’ve learned. I believe you want to make the best choices for your family and our planet. I do too. I’m here to make it a little easier for you.
I’d like to introduce you to the next green thing. The stuff you’ll love in the long run, the Ginger Rogers of green products. It has to dance backwards in high heels because if it doesn’t, why buy it at all? We don’t need more stuff. We need the things we buy to be better.
There’s a way to do most things “earthier.” If you’re remodeling anyway, I’d love to show you some methods developed by LEED to make your house more comfortable and efficient. If you’re looking to upgrade your office, I’ll show you some ideas from the Living Future Organization that’ll brighten up your workspace.
If you’re like me, you’ve heard enough about environmental problems and want to know what to do about them instead. There are people all over the world working on making things and growing food more efficiently than ever before. The leader’s section is about those people. I’d like to give you a glimpse into the lives of the quiet leaders we don’t hear much about because they’re busy innovating and re-inventing the things we’ll use tomorrow.
This section is also about the public leaders who have developed reliable, data-driven paths forward for the environmental movement. Some of them are Paul Hawken of Drawdown.org; Bill Gates (the one and only) now working on the Breakthrough Energy Coalition; Katharine Hayhoe, the climate scientist tirelessly breaking difficult concepts into simple nuggets of wisdom; Bjorn Lomborg, the economist who wants to solve climate change based on economic data.
I’m a journalist and marketer. I graduated from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism at Arizona State University if you’re looking for some credentials. But most of my work has been in online marketing. I also took a break from getting a paycheck for a few years to raise our two children. Now they are old enough to spend a good chunk of their days in school, so I’m back to writing and marketing. This time around, my job is helping you find the best stuff for you, your family and our planet.
