By the time February rolls around, we’re all settling into the new year, shifting from turkey and holiday lights to red roses and boxes of chocolate. Many of us are probably also working to get our budgets and waistlines back on track after the holiday overindulgences. You might even be busy researching and planning your next opportunity to get away – spring break is just around the corner! This month’s issue covers it all, and more.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of the Grand Canyon, and you’ll learn about the
park’s incredible history and current sustainability efforts in David Brown’s educational and enlightening cover story. In our digital edition, you’ll also find a list of centennial events, including a Founder’s Day Centennial Celebration at the South Rim of the park.
Sustainability efforts are becoming increasingly important for individuals and businesses, and this month you’ll learn about the ways living, working, and playing green can have a positive impact on our environment and on your wallet. From sustainable banking and home building to working to reduce your own footprint, living responsibly and efficiently is a journey we’re all on together, and more and more people and organizations are getting on board.
Finally, it’s February, so we couldn’t forget to write about Valentine’s Day, and how you can
show your special someone(s) and the environment some love. Get some green ideas about celebrating by collecting memories and moments instead of giving stuff. Learn to make a Juniper Rose Valentine’s cocktail for a special occasion, or check out some sustainable fashions that are made with love, for love.
As always, thank you for reading. I hope you enjoy it!
