Hi. I’m Nick, and I’m not an environmental scientist, expert vegan chef, survivalist, or a zero waste guru that’s spent the last three decades on a fully self-sustaining farm in the country. No. I’m just a regular dude trying to learn and do what he can for a greener future, and present.
Actually, that’s not entirely true. I am a professional writer with a whole lot of experience researching complex topics and issues. That’s why I’ve decided to document my own journey toward sustainability and provide real practical advice for anyone else looking to lessen their impact on the environment.
I live in the US, so naturally, a lot of what I cover is tailored to life in this country. I can imagine, though, that a fair amount of it will work just as well in other regions of the world.
On a similar note, I’m coming at this from a male perspective, thus the “Dude” part of the name. Originally, that wasn’t my plan, but I noticed that there are relatively few other blogs doing the same. Unfortunately, it’s been my experience that too many men, including younger generations, aren’t taking climate change seriously. I’m not entirely sure why that is, but if I had to guess, I’d say many of them think it’s somehow uncool or not “manly.” So, I decided to take a different approach, by showing guys how simple being eco-conscious can be, even without sacrificing the things they enjoy.
