I am humbled to announce that my green transformation story features in another national magazine this month in an article titled Everyday Green Hero. The publication is Green Lifestyle Magazine, and is a profile written as part of the 2013 Green Lifestyle Awards.
Not one to blow my trumpet (much), I am very pleased with the two page article written by Tierri Abraham, which featured in the May/June issue. She captured the essence of our journey to date.
I conducted the interview a few months back via email, and answered the questions sent to me to the best of my ability. Not a bad way of conducting an interview by the way, because I could really think about the message I wanted people to read. Hopefully it comes across okay.
I have purposefully cut off the story in the image due to copyright, so if you would like to read the story, I am sure it will surface on their website soon, www.greenlifestylemag.com.au, or better still, visit your local newsagent and buy a copy or subscribe online.
If you are worried about the paper and the carbon emissions from the magazine’s production, rest assured that the text pages are printed on 100% post-consumer recycled stock, and the cover is 45% FSC certified fibre and 55% recycled post consumer waste. All manufactured Process Chlorine free! Additionally, Green Lifestyle purchases carbon credits to offset the magazine’s greenhouse gas footprint.
While we are talking about carbon credits, there is a really good article in the magazine about Carbon Offset Basics, written by my buddy, Greg Foyster of Changing Gears fame. The article is well written and is now my go-to reference for carbon credits.
In fact the entire issue is well-rounded and very informative. Worth a read, if I do say so myself.
While we are on the subject of Green Lifestyle Awards, the 2014 Awards are now open for nominations. If you think this blog The Greening of Gavin is worthy for an award nomination again this year, please pop over to the nomination page to submit your nomination. Select the Nominate a business, producer or service that I have used button and may I suggest the Online Eco Info Site category if you are struggling to select one?
If not, no problem at all, but take some time to nominate your favourite green business or person while you are there. There are so many to choose from that are doing great work. Just by submitting a nomination you could WIN a four-night stay at Paperbark Camp, valued at over $3,000! Sounds like a very cool prize.
Anyway, I am a firm believer that if you don’t ask, you don’t get.
As always, thanks for reading. I appreciate each and every one of you for dropping by the blog, day after day, year after year. You are my inspiration!
