Introducing… the Lazy Green Girl

Ever felt a little lost when it comes to the world of Green Living and overwhelmed by scary messages of climate change? Do you feel passionately about looking after our planet, but simply feel you haven’t the time, energy or talents to get going? You’re not alone!

My name is Trudi, I’m 29 years old, and I’m lazy…! Not in the sense that I sit around all day and relax (I wish!). But when it comes to going green, it always seems a bit too much like hard work!

So I’m setting myself a challenge. If lazy old me can transform my idealistic and passionate beliefs about a healthier planet into physical action; maybe there’s hope for us after all!

Join me, as I try to find my way through the jungle of going green the easy way; sharing my discoveries, ideas and advice for making a difference without breaking the bank or your  back!
