This week was especially big for us. We passed the 9,000 mark on Facebook by about 100 ‘likes!’ We are amazed at the rapid growth of our little site, and know that we couldn’t have ever done it without you: our wonderful community! Thank you for being so active in social conversations and sharing our articles. It’s the only thing we ever ask of you, after all! :) We look forward to hitting 10k soon, and it will be quite an event. Have a great weekend!

Don’t forget that Kristen Conner Pardue is our March Everyday Eco Star, because her story is AMAZING. Have you read it yet? You can also follow her on Twitter.
