My name is Becky Striepe (pronounced “stree-pee,” like “sleepy”), and I am a crafts and food writer from Atlanta, Georgia with a passion for making our planet a healthier, happier, kinder place to live. My life’s mission is to make green crafting and vegan food accessible to everyone!
I believe in the power of little changes: using cloth napkins instead of paper, a reusable bag instead of a plastic one, and eating vegan, even if you’re just starting with a few meatless meals each week. Things like this add up to make a big impact! Even the act of cooking is so much greener than takeout when you consider all of the packaging and whatnot involved in ordering that Chinese delivery.
I also believe that cooking and crafting go hand-in-hand. I mean, what’s craftier than whipping up a delicious meal or tasty treats to share with your friends and family, right?
In November 2012, I released my very first book: 40 Days of Green Smoothies! It’s a six week plan to help you start a green smoothie habit, and it includes a recipe for each day along with weekly tips and shopping lists.
Thanks so much for popping in! I hope you’ll take some time to poke around and see what this place is all about.
Starting on December 1, 2009, the FTC required that bloggers fully disclose if we’re making money from mentions of products on our sites and when we receive freebies for review. I try to be up front and honest whenever I write something, but just in case anything isn’t clear, here we go:
- I get paid a small percentage if you purchase something through the Amazon links on my site. If you start your shopping on Amazon by clicking one of my links, I get an even smaller percentage. I never link to anything on Amazon unless I was going to include that item in my post anyway.
- I get paid a small percentage if you purchase something through the Greenerprinter links on my site. Greenerprinter is a company that I believe strongly in, and I use their services for a lot of my own printed materials.
- If you buy Lunchbags! directly through the site, I make a small profit on it.
- When you purchase my fabric designs at Spoonflower, I get a 10% commission.
- I’d never review a freebie without mentioning that the company sent me a sample. Any time I do review freebies, I promise to be totally honest about my experience.
If you’ve got any questions about my policies or want anything clarified, you can hit my up by sending an email through the Contact page!
