Living green and living frugally are also about living well. Choosing sustainable and kind-to-the-environment isn't always the cheapest option but it's the one that pays a fair price.

As the child of parents who grew up in the depression I learned to value what I had, conserve it, mend it and look after it.

As a baby boomer I have lived with excess, an excess of possessions and an excess of waste.

In the late afternoon of life I'm choosing more wisely, choosing less and passing on skills. The greatest legacy is not in what we have but in our collective memory.
