Repeat after me: “Nothing is too small to make a difference.” That’s the mantra of Wanda Urbanska, who shows us that there are many ways to simplify life in her PBS television series, Simple Living with Wanda Urbanska. Now in its fourth season, Simple Living offers sustainable living ideas to help viewers eliminate the clutter that consumes our 21st century lives. The half-hour segments produced by Urbanska and her partner, writer Frank Levering, focus on four themes: environmental stewardship, thoughtful consumption, community involvement and financial responsibility. This season, keep an eye out for segments about wiser living featuring MOTHER EARTH NEWS Editor in Chief Cheryl Long, as well as a few colleagues from our sister publications, Grit and Herb Companion.
