Earth911’s Mitch Ratcliffe chats with Good Girl Gone Green creator and green living mentor Stephanie Moram, looking at the choices for entertaining sustainably this summer. Stephanie’s been exploring the many ways we can reduce our environmental impact with an emphasis on making our lives unique and enjoyable. “There is no right or wrong way to become more green,” she says, and we agree. She offers an online learning program, Find Your Green, for women who want to understand the sustainability questions they should consider when making choices at the store and home.
About Earth911 (text from their website…)
Earth911.com started its life in the early ’90s as an Arizona-centric recycling database, even before the World Wide Web came along. After almost 20 years, it remains the largest recycling database in the nation — probably the world. We work every day to help you make small, simple changes that will reduce the environmental impact of your life, work, and shopping. No one is perfect, and everyone can make progress, so we focus on what you can do today by sharing insights into how to measure the carbon footprint of products, services, and lifestyles that need to change for humanity to thrive.
We believe humans can successfully reduce their impact by using less, reusing more, and constantly making small improvements through their daily decisions. Earth911 works to make that complex story something you can understand and help to realize through your everyday actions. Big companies and governments need to change, but they will follow citizens who act and communicate what they value. Your progress requires growing awareness of the consequences of workplace and shopping decisions. These actions most directly shape the human carbon footprint, and small changes by many of us do add up to huge improvements in environmental impacts.
