My husband and I are proudest of teaching our two children how to live environmentally friendly lives, and of showing them how we can reduce our environmental footprint as a family. We try to lead by example: We have a rain barrel and a garden, shop at the local farmers market, drive a hybrid car, and much more.

We believe that showing our children models of environmentally conscious living is the most important step we can take toward a more sustainable future.
