For This Green Life Subscribers…

It’s been a pleasure writing for you and hearing from you these many years!

current-1409-finalAs you may already know, I am wrapping up my This Green Life column for NRDC after more than a decade. If you didn’t know, read my farewell column here.

As of now, I am not sure what I’ll do next. It may be more of the same in a different format or maybe something altogether new. If you’d like to hear when I figure it out — and stay in touch — join my mailing list.

      Best wishes on your new journey ! We all need a change,like our bodies change every 7 years 🙂 My sis is a vet tech & told me about cat litter from recycled pine trees which is what we use.One 40 LB bag (of the name brand last year) lasted us almost 1 year with the specific designed cat pan. I just tried the store brand, will never purchase again. (FYI)

    So glad for an opportunity to stay in touch. I have learned so much from you & always with the implied “hug” of a friend. Many thanks, and looking forward to future contact.

    Well done!…and yes, worker’s rights, especially the migrant workers who are integral to our food production is an issue that must be brought to greater light. The truth is that a “green lifestyle” is out of reach to the struggling poor and lower middle/middle class. These dis-empowered neighbors see their homes become dumping grounds for unchecked polluters because their well-being is not on the agenda. It is time we all adopt a more wholistic view that invites everyone to the table.

    Thanks for your tireless efforts to share and to educate others about how we can all help heal the world. Now that I am a grandparent I am even more concerned about how we pass the world on to the next generation(s). You have done much to help in that regard. Best wishes in any and all your future endeavors!

    You make your child read books on a Kindle? Jeez.

    • Sheryl September 25, 2014 at 10:45 am #

      Have no fear, she’s a young adult and chose herself. We also have many old books on our shelves for her to choose from — and when I say many, I mean close to 2000. We are great book lovers.

    Several years ago, I took on the role of Environmental Club sponsor for our school. As I searched the internet for information to share with my students, I came across your site. I’m so glad I signed up to receive the newsletters! Thank you for sharing your knowledge and for making us aware of our choices. May God bless you as you move on to the next chapter.

    Thank you Sheryl for your wonderful monthly newsletter- they were always so informative, well-researched and easily to understand/implement. I’m in the sustainability field and used your articles to to help educate myself and others. Good luck and keep spreading your amazing gift – I look forward to hearing from you!

    I can sympathize with your desire to get more active in labor issues. I had a local green column for about three years and you could see the shift from tree-hugging to Congress-bashing. I felt, and still feel, that the public gets it on most issues, provided they get accurate, honest information, but they are thwarted by the very government that they elected to represent them. So I dropped the green column and established a political site and facebook blog. Granted, not very effective in moving Washington, but at least I can feel like I’m addressing the real problem. Job well done on your previous column and best of luck with the new venture. Dr. Bob Ross
