Hello. My name is Jennie Lyon, it’s nice to meet you. I am a professional green lifestyle writer and the founder and editor of Sweet Greens. I also write sustainable living posts for Cascadian Farm and Applegate Farms and green parenting, children’s how-to projects and green design posts for Inhabitots. I am also a member of the Target Inner Circle where I share an insider’s look at the ways Target is committed to environmental sustainability, education, community safety, and healthy living. I am helping to educate others and improve the eating habits of families across the country via my partnership with Stonyfield. I am an expert contributor at Green Child Magazine with a focus on recycled projects for kids and I write several posts a month on green living at Ecocentric Mom.
I am also the founder and owner of Jennie Lyon | Virtual Assistant Services where I provide small business owners and self-employed entrepreneurs with social media, marketing, administrative, and customer support.
We have one amazing teenager named Eben who is 18 years old. Eben is a fantastic, creative and funny child who makes being a mother a pure delight – he is my EVERYTHING. Eben is constantly coming up with fabulous ideas for Sweet Greens – and inspires me with his photography, passion for the environment and his fearless approach to life and the ocean.
I started Sweet Greens as a birthday gift to myself in January 2009. At the time, my family was spending a lot of time researching and implementing green ideas into our home and lifestyle. I wanted a way to be creative everyday while sharing my green ideas with others – this is how Sweet Greens came to be. I never thought that it would grow as quickly as it has or that it would turn into a career. I really enjoy writing, taking photographs and creating do-it-yourself projects – I am very grateful that I am able to do what I love everyday as a career.
Well, that is a little bit about me. Thank you so much for visiting Sweet Greens. I would love to hear from you. If you have questions, comments, likes or dislikes, you can always reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org
