The Convenience-Environmentalist: An Introduction

Why does the internet need another source of green, environmentally-friendly, healthy living information? What makes me different? Here’s my story, I hope you’ll follow along with me.

I’m on my 2nd maternity leave from my career as a green building consultant. I am a Professional Engineer who has spent 8 years helping people build and operate green buildings, and am very proud of the work I do. I realized one day that I’ve got into a rut at home and could do more to have a smaller environmental footprint. So I decided to start paying attention. And in the spirit of knowledge sharing, I decided I would take to social media to help others who might be feeling like me. My mission is simple:

Consume responsibly for me, my family, and the planet.

As much as I would love to live off-grid and make everything myself, that just isn’t going to happen. But I can try to get the most bang for my eco- and health-conscious buck.

As I started brainstorming where I wanted to start, and what I wanted to re-evaluate in my routine, I discovered that many environmental/health-conscious resources use click-bait headlines based on exaggeration, shock-value, and shame. Nobody needs that when they’re just trying to create a happy, healthy home for their family. I’m hoping the information I share here and on social media is more inspiring and helps others meet their goals.

A few areas I have in mind:

  • Auditing my personal care and baby products (using @ThinkDirty and/or EWG’s @SkinDeep)
  • Energy reduction
  • Waste reduction
  • Groceries – spend less, get more
