Welcome

Bienvenidos!

That’s “Welcome!” in Spanish.  GRACIAS for visiting Eco-Rico. My mission is to help you help the earth by making simple, inexpensive changes that create a global difference – and have fun while you’re at it! Cooking a yummilicous meal might do wonders too. Get you all Eco-Sexy…

I often hear friends, family and complete strangers say being “eco” is difficult, expensive, time-consuming, a waste of time. Nothing could be further from the truth. My motto “Change Yourself, Change the World” works both ways. You can become more conscious starting from the inside or the outside. The planet doesn’t much care how you change. But one thing’s for sure, you will change. Might as well make yourself and those around you happier and healthier if it’s gonna happen, right?

It starts small. One day your kid has a can collection project in school. You separate trash and, for the first time, understand how much recyclable stuff ends up in a landfill. Then you buy a pack of organic berries or some peaches cause you heard the pesticides on the non-organic varieties cause cancer. And you burn your hand when a little bleach splashes your palm while cleaning the toilet. You watch the bleach flush down the drain and wonder if it later ends up in your kid’s bath water. Next thing you know you’ve spent 5 bucks on an earth friendly cleaner, just in case. Simple.

Or maybe you drive a Prius, practice the three R’s – reduce, reuse, recycle – and have a quote for solar panels, but don’t know what else to do. Surf Eco-Rico! You’ll find answers, converse with like-minded peers and link to earth-friendly companies and products you never knew existed.

Or horror of horrors, you’re stuck in a dead end job or no job and KNOW you’re meant for something bigger, something that serves people and planet, and you have no clue how to find your purpose or if you’ll be passionate about it when you do! I. Can. Help. You.

I love what I do and want to share it with you! I want you to be a beacon of light for others to mirror. I want you to be the best you. And part of that commitment is to be good to the planet that feeds, waters and shelters you. You cannot be the best you in a dirty environment, eating toxic food and washing with chemically treated water. You can’t care about the planet when you don’t care about yourself.

Help me help you help our planet.

Watch the show, surf the site and chat with me. Let’s make this journey a joyous one. Let’s cook, dance and play in an earth-friendly way. Let’s use our dollars to support consciously-produced products. We’ll be better people for it.

Raise Your Eco-tegrity baby! That’s Eco-Sexy!

In love, passion and purpose.

Giselle
