My name is Dawn and I am 46 years young. I have a wonderful husband and two boys, ages 23 and 19. I have been a concerned environmentalist since childhood. Besides recycling, I do my best to make environmentally friendly choices when shopping. Examples include purchasing items that are made locally to reduce the cost to the environment of shipping, purchasing organic items whenever possible, and choosing to purchase items from companies that have environmentally friendly policies and practices, do not test their products on animals, and use ingredients in their products that have the least amount of negative impact on the environment as possible.
I have been a vegetarian since I was 16 years old, and both of my boys have been vegetarians since birth.
I worked in the computer systems field for 20 years before "retiring" to spend more time with my family and do what work that I can at home. Currently, I create web sites on an independent basis for clients (typically small and start-up businesses) and for informational purposes based on my hobbies and interests.
