Hello there!

Becky StriepeMy name is Becky Striepe (pronounced “stree-pee,” like “sleepy”), and I am a freelance writer and vegan crafter living in Atlanta, Georgia. My life’s mission is to make green crafting and vegan food accessible to everyone!

I believe in the power of little changes: using cloth napkins instead of paper, a reusable bag instead of a plastic one, and eating vegan, even if you’re just starting with a few meatless meals each week. Things like this add up to make a big impact! Even the act of cooking is so much greener than takeout when you consider all of the packaging and whatnot involved in ordering that Chinese delivery.

I also believe that cooking and crafting go hand-in-hand. I mean, what’s craftier than whipping up a delicious meal or tasty treats to share with your friends and family, right?

In November 2012, I released my very first book: 40 Days of Green Smoothies! It’s a six week plan to help you start a green smoothie habit, and it includes a recipe for each day along with weekly tips and shopping lists.

You can check out some of my freelance writing work at Crafting a Green World, Eat Drink Better, greenUPGRADER, and Feelgood Style. You can also find my work at Care2 and How Stuff Works.

Thanks so much for popping in! I hope you’ll take some time to poke around and see what this place is all about.
