We have a winner on our "Living Green: The Missing Manual" giveaway

We had a giveaway of "Living Green: The Missing Manual", which we reviewed here on September 12, and we have a winner!

We asked you to share with u how your green journey begin and what was the first green step you took. We got replies with great stories and the winner is Danika, who wrote us the following:

I can't say exactly when I started becoming green. It was a process for me. It started in Marin County, CA seeing small ponds with signs that warned people not to swim because the water was toxic while birds stood in the water. Then, watching the local rock quarry grow and grow and realizing what a violent thing it is to rip the earth apart like that.

The final step was a friend's wife having breast cancer at about the same time as the first Green Festival was held in SF. I became militant about keeping myself and my family away from toxins and the Green Festival inspired me with so many ways to do so. Now I have an ecofriendly business and am producing a local ecofestival.

Congrats, Danika! You won a copy of "Living Green: The Missing Manual". We will also plant a tree for it with our planting partners and add to the book our "One tree planted for this book" sticker.

Thank you also to all the other participants in the giveaway! We enjoyed reading your stories and invite you to keep checking our blog, as we have some more great giveaways coming up.
