Hello, my name is Kat, I am 36 years old and I want to be a Super Hero!

You read that right, I want to be a Super Hero; unfortunately, I don’t have any super powers and haven’t encountered any radioactive pests or critters. But I’m working on it.

I haven’t rescued any damsels in distress yet, but that’s just small potatoes. A real Super Hero has one overall goal: save the planet from impending doom.

So that’s all I have to do: save the planet … no biggie.

Well, all right, it is kind of a big deal, so how am I going to do it?

Kat Schmidt: Super Hero

Before I tell you that, let me tell you a little about my background.

I am currently a part-time student, full-time corporate employee, part-time blogger. I also enjoy trading in the forex market. When you throw friend’s and family into the mix, well, you might say I’m a little busy sometimes.

My original education was in skin care. I attended the Aveda Institute in Minneapolis, MN, way back in 2001. After a number of years working full-time in different office jobs (and usually part-time with some cosmetics gig), while trying to get a business as a makeup artist off the ground, I decided to go back to school.

Now I have completed my Associate of Science in Environmental Project Management, and I am working to complete my BA as well. And I am soooo close to being done!

That brings us up-to-date, so let’s get back to saving the planet.

All through my adult life, I have strived to be eco-friendly, green, environmentally responsible … whatever you want to call it. That’s why I chose Environmental Project Management as the major for my A.S. degree program.

The problem is, I am just one person, with limited time and limited income. So what can I really do to make a difference?

TONS of stuff, that’s what! And that is what I am here to talk about.

I will use this site to:

  • Blog about environmental issues, to bring awareness to them
  • Investigate and review home and personal care products to see just how “green” they are (and when I say save “green” I mean $$ and the Earth)
  • Give tips on small changes you can make in your everyday habits that can add up to a big difference.

You don’t have to live in the woods or grow your own food to make a difference in the world. I’ll help you find realistic and affordable solutions that can be worked into your life.

I am one person, and I make a difference.

Please note that advertisements may vary, and will not always be hand selected by me, so if you see any products advertised that you feel are out-of-line with the values of my website (i.e. saving the planet) please leave a comment or shoot me an email so that I can look into it and see about avoiding it in the future!
