This blog is the happy pairing of two personal passions–introducing people to the wonders of nature that await right outside their own door, and writing creative nonfiction. It’s a sincere labor of love.
But for far too long, in my humble opinion, people have placed a higher value on products and pastimes that come with a price tag than on the natural systems that support our consumer-based economy and culture. People doing the hard work of protecting the planet and it’s citizens–human and non-human–go begging for funds while millions of dollars are spent on manufactured goods that will end up at the landfill in record time (but will take those same ecosystem services we grossly undervalue decades to repurpose).
What we need are examples of self-supporting green actions. But here’s the rub: I want to keep these pages free of ads.
There’s no need to sign up for a PayPal account if you don’t have one–just use any credit or debit card. If you aren’t based in the U.S. I hope to have an option for you soon, but for now words of support (email@example.com) will be accepted in lieu of cash.
