Syndicated Column: EcoHealthy Living

By Patricia Dines

The new syndicated column EcoHealthy Living makes it easy for readers to accurately and quickly understand current ecological issues, then take constructive actions to help protect the planet. With independent thinking and a helpful inspiring voice, EcoHealthy Living offers people environmental "how to," with a heart.

EcoHealthy Living is written by Patricia Dines, Author of The Organic Guide to Sonoma, Napa, and Mendocino Counties, and Editor and Lead Writer for The Next STEP newsletter, which gently educates readers about toxics and alternatives.
