Im Jeff and I write at Sustainable Life Blog. I started writing Sustainable Life Blog in 2009, to share my journey towards becoming a more sustainable person in my finances, the environment and my health. Even though all of these topics alone are difficult to deal with, I’ve found that you can often kill a few birds with one stone (For example, if you wanted to get healthy, help the planet and save money, just ride your bike to work. It will save you money on gas – and you may even be able to get rid of your car insurance – you’ll reduce pollution from your cars tailpipe and you’ll get some exercise!)
I’ll openly say that even though I’ve been blogging for a few years, I’m not exactly what you’d call an expert – I’m just a regular guy trying to lower my impact, save some money and stay healthy, all while trying to keep up with a regular life. If you feel like you want to improve in any one of these areas, I’m glad you’re here and hope that my journey will help you out. I’m sure there’s plenty of mistakes that I’ve made and hopefully you can avoid and help you get on the path that you’re looking to be on. Before I got started with this blog, I got an undergraduate degree in environmental studies, and jacked up my finances pretty hard in the process (which is why I started writing this site in the first place). Hopefully, if you read my story and turn it around, you’ll realize you can turn your situation around as well. It will take work and it’s not always easy, but it’s worth it.
If you’ve got a question about sustainability, finances, health or something that I’ve tried that you’re curious about or interested in, feel free to drop me an email at info [at] sustainablelifeblog [dot] com. Just make the necessary replacements, and I’d love to help you out!
