I'm so happy that chose EcoGrrl for our feature this week ... she's one smart, environmentally-conscious woman! I've followed her blog for a long time and it's always been great. But in the last couple of years, she has kicked up her efforts even further and created a site full of interesting, pertinent information. For example, the EcoGrrl Interviews feature people from all over the world who share a passion for living green. EcoGrrl's questions aren't run of the mill ... she asks thoughtful, and thought-provoking, questions like "What do you turn to when you need strength?" and "In what environment(s) do you feel most in your element?" Across the top of the blog, readers will find various topics like Books I Adore, Wellness and In My Garden. Each collection of articles is well written with an honesty that readers have come to expect from EcoGrrl. She questions everything and challenges us to consider all sides of an issue, never assuming that the accepted or popular thoughts on a subject are correct. There's one section of EcoGrrl's blog entitled "9-to-5" ... the posts in this section are all about careers. So how does that work into green living? Well, EcoGrrl started her own business, about 14 months ago, as a recruiting consultant. She takes her passion for sustainability and applies it to her work, building relationships with (and for) her clients ... relationships which contribute to a strong community ... and as we all know, a strong community is a key factor to helping our earth. Stop by and visit EcoGrrl ... it's definitely worth your time!
