Linsay's green creds = She recycles! Composts (which, in Phoenix, is more like a science experiment)! Brings her own bags to the store! Attended a super-crunchy liberal arts university! Drives a hybrid! (OK, full disclosure, the other family car is a massive, gas-guzzling Canyonero that is utterly necessary to pull the pop-up camper)! From the green, green PNW! Plus, she has written about topics like solar panels, solar ovens, pet-safe weed killers, soil and water conservation, geothermal energy, water-wise gardening, eco-friendly real estate remodels and eating/cooking/gardening with organic foods.
