Adria Vasil: Reporting Green Solutions

I think my mission as a Green Hero is really to take the guess work out of going
green for people and to root out the every day chemicals that are hidden in outlives…to hopefully encourage people to go, “yes i can do this, go green, live more sustainably”

– Adria Vasil


Since the spring of 2004, Adria Vasil has been spreading her message to the masses through the weekly Ecoholic column in NOW magazine. The column’s success has spawned a line of Ecoholic books that offer insight on how to better treat our homes and bodies, one page at a time. When Adria was a teenager she began to question the obscure names printed in the ingredient lists of everyday consumer products. Horrified at what she discovered, she put her journalism skills to work to tell us what is really in the products we buy off the shelf and offers simple and environmental alternatives to our everyday chemically abundant household products.
