Green Living Magazine Hosts Simple Solutions Summit

A Message From Dorie Morales, Publisher of Green Living Magazine:


My name is Dorie Morales, and I would like to invite you to the Simple Solutions Summit. I am the Publisher and Editor in Chief of Green Living magazine, a local, environmentally focused publication. In partnership with VerdeXchange, we are coming together as a central force to encourage and help the Valley go permanently green, with the Simple Solutions Summit.

From a young age, I knew being conscious of the environment was vitally important. When I was a young child I loved the home garden we had in New Jersey, known as the “Garden State.” It was fun to pick and eat all the delicious fruits and vegetables. During a high school exchange program to rural Espelette, France, I connected to nature and farming after watching the birth of a baby cow. From then on it became my dedication to protect the earth, and made it my mission to inspire, empower, and educate the world on what we all can do to make eco-conscious decisions for a healthier life and a healthier planet.

I have combined my passions for an environmentally friendly lifestyle and educating others not only into a monthly magazine, but also a 1.5 day Simple Solutions Summit, focused on how YOU can make quick, easy changes day to day to live a more sustainable life. The Summit focuses on 6 pillars of sustainability: Air, Education, Energy, Food, Water, Waste. We will have a panel of local speakers discussing their simple solutions on the 6 pillars, as well as 50 interactive booths, an Eco Tank for budding entrepreneurs, a fun and educational kids’ area and much more. We anticipate 500 attendees, including international change-makers committed to taking action and the general community who want to learn more.

Whether you’re passionate about sustainable action, purchasing local food and goods, groundwater concerns, saving energy, reducing the amount of waste you produce, living healthier, or simply exploring more ways to live an eco-conscious life, the Simple Solutions Summit is the optimal event to continue educating you and your family.

Please join us in an effort to preserve not only your home, but our state, and learn all the simple solutions you can utilize to keep our planet beautiful for years to come.
