A journalist specializing in personal and environmental health and helping consumers identify truly, verifiably green products, I'm currently writing a book full of pleasure- and health-boosting, money- and resource-saving,tips for daily life. For 11 years, I was editor-in-chief of THE GREEN GUIDE and co-founder of thegreenguide.com); I've also been editor-in-chief of Honolulu Weekly, and a senior editor at Plenty and This Old House magazines. Got my start in magazines at Glamour. My writing has appeared in The New York Times, The Atlantic Monthly, Sierra, The Nation,Worldwatch,Sprig.com and elsewhere.
Married (to the irrepressible Green Man) and a mom, I divide my time between my home base of New York City, birthplace Hawaii, and a small wild island off the coast of Brittany, France.
