marina's corner \\ 

Hi! My name is Marina

and I am the creator of

the Earth Year Project.

I am a millennial and a scientist,

a student and a sailor,
an aspiring change-maker 

and a lover of the great outdoors.

Welcome to my corner of the internet, where I'll show you my

journey of going green.

why I'm here \ The phrase, "stop doing nothing because you can't do everything," hit me hard the first time I read it. I've always been a perfectionist, so when I know I can't do something perfectly then I generally never take the first step.

\ The earth is our home, though, and a lot needs to change before we fully destroy it. But there is so much to change, it's overwhelming. Where to begin?

\ That's the whole point of the Earth Year Project. Finding a place to start and actually following through.  

\ I hope you'll join me, in taking a good look at our lives to see what we can live without in order to reduce our impact on the planet.

my blog \ I'm a scientist more than a writer, so I can't promise any written masterpieces, but I can promise to be real. I'm far from perfect but I'm trying to do my part to treat our planet with the respect it deserves. Let's see how far I get...

don't be a stranger \ Whether you know me personally or stumbled across my corner of the internet, I would love to know who you are and what your goals are. If you have any questions for me, any suggestions for my page, or just want to chat, please say hi!
