The right person at the right time
But, as it turned out, she REALLY became the RIGHT person to interview for this article, because she happened to mention she was now a part of a grassroots campaign on downshifting (http://www.downshiftingweek.com/). I checked out her site and was elated to see that National Downshifting Week hadn't come and gone just yet. Actually, it was due up on April 21st to the 27th. PERFECT! I was practically bouncing in my seat when I realized how nicely that would fit into the E-zine. It would give readers a chance to participate, as well! And I do have readers based in the UK; they might be able to do something even more, like contacting Tracey or promoting NDW in their part of the country. Tracey has not been able to get NDW going in the U.S. just yet, but she still has faith -- and so do I!
I'm happy I found out about her eco-friendly campaign. I'm all for doing something good for the environment. Plus, it's one of those things where we take a good hard look at what we have, and comparing it to what we REALLY have (and what we REALLY need). I'm not one for materialistic living, and I believe in living in harmony with the planet. So I'm happy to put her banner on my site and spread the word about her campaign. Just as happy to include her, and her information, in the April E-zine, as well.
