Hi all! Welcome to Waste Not Want Not! My name is Marguerite and I am a millennial who just moved back to Chicago from DC.
For a while now I had been thinking of putting my love of environment/sustainability/eco-friendliness together with my other love of writing, and thus Waste Not Want Not was born!
I have known for a long time that being eco-conscious was not something I wanted to do just as a lifestyle, but also as a career. I studied Environmental Management at Indiana University, then went on to get my Master of Public Affairs with a concentration in Sustainable Development.
Since graduating, I had the awesome opportunity to work out in DC, but now I am back in the Midwest and living in Chicago for the first time.
This blog will mostly cover my adventures of being an environmentalist in the city. From apartment composting and city farmers markets, to upcycling and active transportation, I hope to cover it all.
Whether it is through my blog, career, or many side activities, my main goal is to help make a difference and inspire change. Want to join?
