About Hannah and Rachel
Hannah MacBride grew up playing in the woods, fields, and waters of New Hampshire. She was an early environmentalist, picking up trash and putting leaf “band-aids” on ailing trees, but only really started to grasp global issues like climate change in college. As a young adult, Hannah focused her energy on improving her own lifestyle to reflect her values. When Hannah became a mother, she realized living a sustainable lifestyle was not enough to protect the Earth for her children. She would need to convince others to do the same. After several inspiring conversations with Rachel, GreenLifeNH was born.
Rachel Sandweiss Gourvitz was born and raised in NYC during the 1980s and 90s. She specifically remembers when the city stopped using residential incinerators and introduced recycling. A true city girl, Rachel used to be afraid of nature and walks in the woods. However once Rachel started regularly visiting the Berkshires in her 20s, and visiting transfer stations, she began thinking about man’s effect on the climate. Rachel moved to NH with her family in 2013, and has since watched the temperatures hit 60+ in January. She is therefore working to improve her personal habits by making one small change at a time (often inspired by Hannah!), in hopes of protecting our Earth.
