Hi, my name is Jill, and I love literature, nature and the idea of conservation in general. When I was a little girl, I read many books by Mark Twain, and I fell in love with the idea of large rivers and the promise created by clean, open and natural spaces. As I developed into an adult, I began to integrate those ideals into my reality. In particular, I begin to look at how I could increase recycling efforts and decrease waste production in ways that helped to protect the planet. Over the years, I have collected a lot of tips around this issue – some of them are as old as Mark Twain's novels while others are more cutting edge. In this blog, I plan to share these ideas with you, and I hope you like what you read and learn. Take care!
