Introducing Lisa Joy Rosing

I am going to be writing a guest blog series for Urban
Habitat Chicago. My environmental focus is on
reducing trash, returning to the methods used before
disposable products were invented, “reusables” and
diet.

In this blog series I will focus on a variety of
ways to eliminate disposable products in the home and
in the community. Some of you may know me because I
teach “How and Why to Cloth Diaper Your Baby” here in
Chicago. I also am building a consulting practice on
“greening” your home. Mostly what I teach and speak
about around Chicago is nothing revolutionary, but
rather uses common sense and a commitment to break the
chain of dependence on convenience products and return
back to the past through reuse. The impact is mostly
seen in our landfills, and together we can all make
a difference by making small changes to our daily
routines. Often there are other benefits to reducing
trash that I will talk about. Eliminating toxins,
health benefits and saving money will be discussed. I
hope you will follow my blog series, add comments,
suggestions as well as your own feelings. Please make
sure to let others interested in this subject know
about my blog.

I am glad to be here!

Wow, I’m very excited to read your blog series! This sounds like it will offer ideas that are very do-able and that are right up our (garbage-picking) alley here at UHC. Thank you for writing.
