Like many today, I wear many "hats." In addition to being an on-going learner, I have an unbelievably patient and encouraging husband (Ted) who supports all my crazy ideas and ventures. I am a mother of four adult sons, one of which is non-verbal with autism (Tim), and I am blessed to be able to secure incredible opportunities through the concept of a shared economy and independent contracting. I enjoy working remotely as a recruiter, blogger, Air BnB host, and affiliate marketer. Most of what I do is from the comfort of my home. However, I also love meeting people from all walks of life as an occasional rideshare driver. All these things allow me the freedom to earn, explore, and grow as a person and professional.
My favorite activities are hiking, camping, and reading non-fiction. I believe in the importance of composting, water capture, and this year I will be attempting organic gardening! Finally, I am all about the concepts of reducing, reusing, repurposing, and recycling to the point I drive Ted crazy. However, this has become a significant challenge as we relocated to a rural area without a recycling program, leading to my consumer consciousness and creativity continually expanding.
I will never claim to have all the answers, but I will objectively (and passionately) share my viewpoints on many issues that impact our environment while providing you with the resources that helped me to come to my conclusions, when available and applicable. Additionally, I will often share my thoughts about various products and services that I have found along the way that I feel are helping me to achieve my carbon-reducing, green-living goals.
Green Choice Matters is and will always be a reflection that I am pro-renewable energy, eco-friendly products, support Certified Benefit Corporations ("B" Corps), and love helping others “go green.” I also acknowledge that I am a human being, automatically making me an imperfect consumer. Because our individual consumer choices do matter in the big scheme, my goal is to create a cleaner and greener world one blog at a time.
All this said; I look forward to connecting with you in even a small way and thank you for your interest in Green Choice Matters. ~ Tracy Peterson
