Wendy Gabriel created My Green Side in September of 2007 as a way to remind herself, while hoping to educate others, on how to live thoughtfully and responsibly for our children, ourselves and our planet. The journey she is on has opened her eyes to many simple things we can do to make a big difference in the world around us and in our own homes.
Wendy is a freelance eco-writer now based in Fresno, California. Wendy and her work has been featured in numerous publications and websites including the Chicago Sun-Times, Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Fox Business News and Mashable.com. For nearly six years, she was a weekly contributor on a popular radio talk show in the Upper Midwest with a segment titled “Simple Tips for Green Living.” Wendy is an avid recycler, rainwater harvester, composter, thrifter and was instrumental in coordinating the planning and creation of a large mural made with recycled materials at a local elementary school in Fargo, North Dakota. She was also a part of the driving force behind starting a school garden program implemented at several Fargo schools.
Wendy has gone from the freezer (Fargo) to the furnace (Fresno) and could not be happier exploring California with the loves of her life, her husband and two daughters.
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow. The important thing is not to stop questioning. ~Albert Einstein
