Why does New Hampshire’sContinue reading “Five Questions with New Hampshire State Senator David Watters”

Five Questions with Alison Murphy of Concord Handmade

It can be tough to align holiday gift giving with eco-goals. While I often strive to buy used, or give perishables, sometimes you don’t know what a person likes/allergies etc, or you just want to buy new for social reasons. For example, while I’d definitely hand Hannah a high-quality used sweater or homemade gluten-free cookies,Continue reading “Five Questions with Alison Murphy of Concord Handmade”

Five Questions With Jenny Humphries of Mr Fox Composting

If you’ve been a longtime reader of GreenLifeNH, then you know I’m a strong believer in composting. Food waste accounts for a large part of landfill space and composting is a free/cheap and easy way to avoid this trash. However sometimes composting just isn’t possible due to various factors. For example, much to my dismay,Continue reading “Five Questions With Jenny Humphries of Mr Fox Composting”

Five Questions with Estée Cuddihy of Stitch Witch Tailoring and Alterations

Estée and I met each other through our kids and shared school community. I’ve always been interested in clothes but not great at taking proper care of them.

I was first introduced to Micro Mama’s products via the Hot Bar at the Concord CO-OP. My younger daughter and I would go weekly and fill our plates with her various delicacies.

Last month, Stephanie and I both commentedContinue reading “Five Questions With Stephanie Zydenbos of Micro Mama’s”
