My guest this week is Stacey Warlich, who is also the President of the Melton Sustainable Living Group, and she could be classified as a green renter. I invited Stacey on the show today to talk about green renting as she lives a sustainable lifestyle in the same town as me, but in rental accommodation here in the suburbs.
Over the years I have had many blog readers comment that they find it difficult to live a greener lifestyle because they rent. During the show Stacey busts all these myths and much, much more. She talks about how she manages to grow lots of her own fresh fruit and vegetables, and lowers her energy use with a few simple techniques. There is even a rocket heater involved! Talk about green renting on steroids.
I really enjoyed this interview because it was full of practical tips from someone who has lived this way for many years. I love her parting words of advice for people wanting to embrace this lifestyle, but who are living in rental accommodation. It is all about your mindset.
Please thank Stacey via comment for being my guest on the show. It was lovely to bring her into the studio at TGoG headquarters!
