Happy Christmas! I didn’t think I’d have time to post to the website this week but I managed to get a bit more college work done than planned so I celebrated by putting together this newsletter. I doubt many of you will read this article on the actual day of Christmas. You probably have much better things to do but it’ll be sitting in your inbox whenever you get around to checking your emails again.

A huge thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my articles over the year, and share them. You’d be surprised just how much impact you can have by showing others what you’re interested in. I really do appreciate you spreading the word and slowly but surely we’ll make sustainability mainstream and then we won’t need this website!
A special mention to all my patrons who show their appreciation for my work with a once-off or regular donation. With so much information being free online, knowledge has really been devalued and I really cherish you guys taking the time to show how much you value what I do. All the money I get goes towards running the website, speaking expenses, attending paid conferences or events, hopefully making the website better for everyone!
