Introduction Growing up in the city, I was very fortunate in being able to also spend a great deal of time on our family farm in rural Alabama. My grandfather, a retired farmer (even then), took the time to teach me and my younger siblings how to manage and care for our land. We learned how to fully utilize everything and waste as little as possible. I decided to draw upon my "rurban" (rural-urban hybrid) upbringing to share green tips for the everyday person that also save money. Two of my articles were published in "The Community Reinvestor," an Alabama business magazine. I believe that while we all may not desire to be vegan or live off the grid, most of us are willing to at least do our own small part in taking better care of our planet. Many of us are just unsure of exactly what we should do in order to be "green." My goal is to help take green mainstream by showing you how. I am also the Corporate Sustainability Coordinator for my employer.
