3. Follow Friday: Zoe Morrison of @EcoThrifty

Let's get real: as wonderful as they are, Teslas and organic foods don't come cheap, and yet these frequently represent the face of sustainability, excluding some from embracing it. There's a belief you have to either choose between living an environmentally friendly lifestyle and having enough money to, well, live at all. That's why this week, I'd like to introduce you to Zoe Morrison, whose work proves that that's not always true. Morrison tweets, blogs, and has even written a book about living a "thrifty" eco-conscious life from her own personal experiences, making sustainability accessible to all. She covers a range of topics, like eco-thrifty gardening, recipes, frugal sustainable fashion tips, how to save money on your energy bills, reducing your kitchen waste, and more. You can check out Morrison's Twitter and blog here, or join her eco-conscious "thrifty" community on Facebook.
