Hello, my name is Kat, I’m 37 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.

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 my Bachelor of Art in Communication for Social & Environmental Change with a minor in Technical Communication and a minor in Economics. *Pats self on back*

I recently moved to beautiful Boise, Idaho. Now that I’m settled, I can’t wait to get back to my blogs – which have been sadly neglected in all the hubub.

Ok, I think we’re up to date, so let’s get back to saving the planet.

All through my adult life, I’ve striven 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 and Communication for Social & Environmental Change as my major for my BA.

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.

I strive to keep my site free of advertisements — I hate ads on sites I visit, so why would I do that to you! But, I do hope to someday earn a living at this, so some of the links on my site may result in a commission for me if you click on them and complete a transaction.

That said, I will choose products based on quality, value and efficacy. If I don’t like something, or think it’s not worth the cost, I’ll let you know.
