Things crunchy and green tend to take a backseat when someone is going through a major life crisis. (I don’t want to even think about the carbon and waste generated by my night in the hospital. All that gauze! All those tubes, needles, and chucks!) I’m feeling more like myself these days, so much so [...]

Readers will remember that I temporarily left Facebook at the beginning of this month. At the time, quite honestly, I wondered how I would fare. As someone who works from a home office Facebook was my water cooler. It was my link to the world. I figured I would missing hearing all about what my [...]

My house is pretty much a plastic-free zone. We’ve eliminated all Tupperware and plastic storage containers. I don’t use any Zip-Lock-type bags. I have reusable grocery bags. We don’t use plastic wrap, opting instead for glass containers with lids. We don’t have a single plastic cup. I even got rid of all the plastic utensils [...]

It’s totally crazy. I live a short train ride from New York City and I still haven’t secured BlogHer tickets. For those who are unfamiliar: BlogHer is a conference for women all about blogging. It’s a chance for a few thousand women to get together, talk about the business and craft of blogging. And maybe [...]

I started my career writing about technology and business. I was on staff at several computer pubs including PC Magazine where I wrote one or two product reviews daily. When I left to finish my master’s and freelance (on October 16, 1999) I was extremely lucky. I continued writing reviews and product-related stories, seeing my [...]

I have a big problem with plastic. It’s everywhere. Everything we buy — even at environmentally-conscious stores — is wrapped in it. Bread comes in plastic bags. Cereal is in a box. Inside the box: a plastic bag. Most cheese is wrapped in plastic. Even the paper milk cartons we use are lined with plastic. [...]
