Editor’s Letter: Urban Design September 2019

 

Editor's Letter

As we were working on this issue, I had a mental checklist going in my mind… eco-friendly products for the home? Check. Xeriscaped yard? Check. Using recycled materials in my home? Check. 

Surrounding ourselves with sustainable and eco-friendly products, building materials and design in our homes and offices sets the stage for how we approach sustainability in the rest of our lives, and how we care for the earth. I’m happy to say it’s something I’ve always incorporated into my life, but working with Green Living Magazine has opened my eyes to just how much more I can do and change.

We have so many great articles in this issue

Check out what they are doing at Los Olivos Park. I love the farm idea! And I almost pulled out my kids’ art supplies after reading the story on upcycled art—I was ready to create and decorate!

This month, Ric Coggins talks about stress. I think that’s something that pretty much every one of us can relate to.

We also have some photos from last month’s eco-event, which we hosted at our office. More than 100 people stopped by for a fun evening with vendors, prizes and networking. Our next event showcases electric vehicles (EVs). Don’t forget to subscribe to our eco-events for more information and to RSVP for this fun one. I hope to see you there! And, read John S Martinson’s story on them and learn what to watch out for when you transition to an EV. Oops!

Have a wonderful month and enjoy the issue! We will see you in October and at our upcoming Eco Events in Scottsdale and Tucson!

Best,

Michelle
