Welcome to Impact Northwest!

This blog's purpose is to help you discover ways to impact your life and your environment positively by becoming informed about the latest green news and trends and by making small changes that lead to a more sustainable lifestyle.

I am an Oregon State University student heralding from north Idaho, and since my transition I've learned that the best ways to be green in the Northwest is to keep my eyes open to all of the opportunities that surround me. So not only will I offer stories about news and events, but also I hope to share my own experiences in applying sustainability to my own life.

While I intend on sharing news and ideas that I find interesting, I'd love to also focus on things that interest you! Do you like hearing about electric or hybrid cars? Do you want to learn how to make a worm compost bin? Let me know what interests you in the comments!

Thanks for reading, and I hope you enjoy!


  1. Hi Julie - I am a stitching friend of your mom's from Illinois. I'll be following you :-)

  2. Hi, Mary! I'm so glad you're here. Let me know if there are any topics you are particularly interested in and I'll try to write something neat for you.

  3. You should check out the documentary 'No Impact Man' - it's on Netflix

  4. Nice lookin' blog Jodie! I hope to hear some ideas about green sustainable baking and cooking, cause every time you bring food to the news meetings its awesome. Oh! And happy Earth Day in 2 days. I should be blogging about that one too...
