I am passionate about enjoying a full and sustainable lifestyle. I am also curious by nature and a researcher at heart. Over the course of my sustainability journey I have read and read and read, built houses, researched materials and machinery, traveled, taught, acquired degrees and certifications and have learned a lot of very useful and a lot of pretty useless stuff. What I have found is that it is all interconnected AND I realized that there is way too much information out there for most people to even care about. I started GreenBeams so that I can share all of that knowledge with you and to answer the question: what can I, one little person, do in the face of an avalanche of dire environmental predictions and spiking energy costs?
