My interview for Mint.com

mintlogoI was recently asked to participate in an interview for Mint.com’s personal finance series, which might be of interest to some of my readers here:

For Derek Markham, going green extends beyond recycling a few cans or turning down the thermostat in the winter. He and his family have incorporated natural living into all facets of their lives and they’ve found it’s not only better for the environment, but it’s also helped them grow as a family, not to mention helping them save money.

“So much of who we are as adults comes from the ideas and experiences we are exposed to as children, and while I know that our kids will grow up and make their own choices, I want them to have these types of ideals as their foundation,” he says. “I strongly believe that in order to build a more peaceful and more sustainable world, our children will need to make different choices that favor connection, community and the natural world.”
