And just like that, we’re three months into the New Year and Phoenicians are trading in their scarves and boots for flip flops and shorts. Spring is here!
In addition to the warmer weather, I’m celebrating my one-year anniversary as the Associate Editor of Green Living magazine. Our awesome social media intern had the idea to spread out the 12 issues I’ve worked on and have me pose with them for a post about my anniversary. It was strange seeing all the issues laid out and recalling memories from each: interviewing green pioneers and celebrities; eating Thai food on press night while tirelessly reviewing the final pages; the feeling of joy when a new issue arrives and I see it put together for the first time…I was feeling a lot of emotions, but the main one was pride. I’m so proud to work for Green Living magazine, to be a part of its process, and to play a role in spreading the word on making our world a better place. Is it a lot of work? Of course. Is it sometimes stressful? You betcha! But seeing a whole year’s worth of work divided into 12 gorgeous magazine issues is very thrilling. I can honestly say I love my job, and I’m excited to see what these next 12 issues will bring.
But enough about me! I need to tell you what’s so great about this issue. For our Family and Kids issue, we have an article on eco parenting tips; an update on the Kid Against Chemo’s inspirational battle; young yogis at the Sedona Yoga Festival; a spotlight on a local family-run business that focuses on recycling and reusing glass; the First Lady of Kenya’s trip to Arizona; our annual environmental camp guide; recipes for the upcoming March holidays; and much more! March is also National Nutrition Month and we have an article from a holistic nutritionist on ways you can spruce up the healthy food in your kitchen this spring break, in addition to an article from the Cancer Treatment Centers of America on conflicting health advice.
I hope you enjoy reading this issue of Green Living as much as I enjoyed putting it together!
