Health knowledge made personal
I've been blogging, speaking and writing about consumer activism for several years, along with my daughter Sadie. We talk about taking the reigns of power from the corporations that are plundering our environment, laborers, animals, & the future of our fragile planet. We report on sustainable agriculture and sustainable use of our remaining natural resources. Sadie and I have written two books together, both of which are on amazon.com and at fulcrum-books.com. The books are Veggie Revolution: Smart Choices for a Healthy Body and a Healthy Planet (2005) and Going Green: A Wise Consumer's Guide to a Shrinking Planet (2008).
Our books and blog are guides to green consumers. What is sustainably produced food? Does that mean local, or does it mean eating low on the food chain? What are the greenest choices in heating and cooling our homes? What's the most eco-friendly type of transportation? Is some clothing more earth-friendly than others? Organic cotton? Hemp? Bamboo? Vintage?
We write a lot about wildlife and wildlife habitat, too, and how to visit some of the wildest places on Earth, while supporting indigenous cultures who are trying to transition to sustainable livelihoods based on eco-tourism. One of our favorite topics! We'll tell you how to offset the emissions from your airline travel, too.
Read our blog and learn more about all these topics. I have a new WordPress website that'll be up and running by mid-July at sallykneidel.com. Keep reading our posts on veggierevolution.blogspot.com too.
