Meet the Author

Sustainable Stevie is just an ordinary person that's gotten quite fed-up with chemicals in the products we buy, the food we eat, the nonchalant attitude of corporations that continue to exploit the earth's natural resources, the overall toll it has taken and continues to take on our planet and precious eco system; and anything that contributes to ruining our environment. She's passionate about bringing awareness in as many ways as possible to how each person can individually do a little something to contribute to a cleaner environment which is beneficial not only to humans; but other living things that we share this planet with. Getting the most out of our sun through solar power is an awesome way to feel closer to nature and cut expenses. If you're in a position to take advantage of that, it's less grid congestion and cleaner for everyone.
