The environment is the lens through which I see my life. Growing up in the San Francisco Bay Area — surrounded on three sides by water, in the county with the highest concentration of organic farms in the country, knowing the people who grew our food and stewarded the earth, on the very mountain where mountain biking was born — I had grassroots organizing and climate action hardwired into my DNA. A public health crisis in that very place is what sent me down the road of activism — to co-found our non-profit Turning Green in 2005 (with my mom!) focusing on eco education with high school and college students. Change one part of your life today and more will follow. Explore, learn, share, take action, amplify! Here's to transitioning from conventional to conscious… with body care, food, fashion, zero waste, all!
