Get Your Green On – The Renewable Planet
If you've resolved to do more for the environment, good on you. We Nomadik Fanatiks think there's no better cause, except maybe converting your cubicle buddy to a smoke-free lifestyle. If you want to lighten your footprint but haven't a clue where to start, our guest blogger this week can help. Katy, editor of The Renewable Planet, has a whackload of tips to get started. Here's what she's all about:
Katy developed a close tie with nature early on after being repeatedly left up in a tree by her brothers while they ran home for supper. From that inauspicious beginning, her experience has grown to include zoo keeper, tree planter, stream restorer, social activist, government committee member, journalist and green business manager. She has learned along the way that the environment is an integral part of the natural, social and economic aspects of our lives.
Armed with a degree in environmental studies, Katy expanded her knowledge and understanding of the scope of environmental issues working at the peer reviewed publication; Alternatives Journal. Katy has been responsible for government funded focus groups and surveys whose goal was to understand consumer knowledge and opinions regarding environmental issues. This research experience has been instrumental in developing the educational and solutions based focus of The Renewable Planet.
Welcome to Nomadik, Katy!
