Interview with Julie Benz
BOTR: Social media is a vital tool for communicating in 2012. Is green social networking useful, and how important is it for people in the public eye to use their voice to spread its message? JB: Yes! Green social networking gives everyone an opportunity to learn more about advances in all areas of green-living. I think everyone who has a voice- especially those in the public eye- has an obligation to educate not only themselves but others as well. Some people find green living an overwhelming concept as they think they'll have to make expensive or time consuming efforts to rearrange their entire life - but making small changes to a greener way of living can be easy, right? It’s all about the small changes. For example, through Ozoshare I became aware of a growing movement called "meatless mondays" - by eating vegan one day a week, I not only help improve my health but I also reduce my carbon footprint, minimize my water usage and help reduce fossil fuel dependence. Imagine if everyone in the world made that small change in their life!!
