    Editors Note

    This is farewell. When I took this job as Green Livings editor-in-chief more than a year ago, I had no idea what to expect. The depth and breadth of the world of sustainability and eco-conscious living here in Arizona continues to amaze me. To say I learned a lot would be a gross understatement. What I have experienced is truly transformative. There is a robust community of intelligent, generous, passionate souls who are committed to better living and a better planet not just for themselves, but for everyone. I have had the pleasure of meeting many people who are effecting change. I will forever be appreciative to all who are working for the good of our community and our planet. Thank you for your insight, your contributions and all that you do.

    It has been an honor working with the staff here at Green Livingthe freelancers, photographers, writers, interns, editors, designers, administrators and sales team who work together to bring a new issue to you each month. Id like to thank our advertisers who make it all possible and, of course, our readers who support them. Together we are all making strides in spreading the green word.

    In this issue, we introduce you to some ladies who have minimized their impact on the planet by developing sustainable style through secondhand shopping. Youll learn about innovators gardening with aquaponics and scientists studying the ocean-desert connection. We take a look at the healthcare industry, and give tips for improving your own health through nutrition. For home improvements, explore natural lighting by way of skylights and enjoy a special section dedicated to green home products.

    Big changes are happening in the transportation world. In Tucson, getting around just got easier with the launch of Sun Link Tucson Streetcar. Throughout the state, electric car owners also will discover traveling ease with the release of the Offi ce of Tourisms Electric Vehicle Travel Guide. The guide provides charging station locations in a travel itinerary format that encourages exploration of northern, southern and central Arizona.

    As with every issue of Green Living, the pages are packed with information and ideas to explore.

    During my time at Green Living, I did learn that all is not always as it seems. I encourage you to keep doing your own research. Question, challenge and discover. Natural and organic are not the same, nor are compostable and biodegradable. Know why you are making the choices you make, seek out the experts and embrace the old adage knowledge is power. At Green Living, we want you to be empowered as we travel together on this eco-conscious journey.

    While my time at Green Living is coming to an end, my personal journey to live green has only just begun. I will happily and proudly take what I have learned with me on my next adventure.

    With gratitude,

    Cheryl HurdEditor-in-Chief
