Welcome to Earth and Money!
I know what you’re thinking…yet another personal finance/lifestyle blog! Isn’t the market saturated with those by now? What makes this blog worth reading over all the others out there?
Let me begin by answering those questions. The market probably is saturated, or if not, its getting pretty close. And whether or not you think this blog is worth reading is completely, totally, up to you. But I think its worth writing – in fact, I should have started writing this years ago. To understand how I got to where I am today, why don’t you read about me…
This blog is about two things that are near and dear to my heart – personal finance, and living a low-impact, sustainable, green lifestyle. Wow, that was a lot of buzz words! Seriously though, what really excites me even more is writing about how to combine the two. This blog is my journey towards financial security while minimizing my impact on the world we live in. And no, I don’t believe those two concepts are mutually exclusive. To get you excited, here are a few topics I’m planning to be cover in the near future:
- Is Budgeting Necessary or is Awareness Enough? How tracking my finances allows me to live without a budget (a multi-part series).
- Ethical Investing – What practices does your money support?
- How to Save Your Money and the Environment at the Same Time – a multi-part series exploring things like taking advantages of common resources, eating real food without breaking the bank, DIY ways to lower your impact, and more.
- What’s In My Food? Did you know that microwave popcorn is carcinogenic? And that for a fraction of the cost, you can make healthier popcorn in the same amount of time? This will be an ongoing series.

Thanks so much for stopping by our site today EAM.
I could not agree with you more about the plethora of topics available to folks who care about sustainability / eco-friendly things and the financial systems that, as folks say “make the world turn”. Ironic, huh?
I will be subscribing and reading. Drop us an email if you are interesting in working with some other like minded sites. But those of us in Canada and friends in the U.S. – perhaps beyond. Or, if you need a sounding board I am an email (and perhaps a day or 2) away.
