Thanks for visiting! I’m Abby Quillen. I’m a writer, and I live in Eugene, Oregon with my husband and two sons.
Are you looking for ways to live a healthier and more sustainable life? I’m right there with you. For many years, I’ve been on the hunt for outside-the-box thinkers, research, and knowledge to help people create healthier and more sustainable lives. I’ve written hundreds of blog posts and articles on these topics. My writing has been featured in dozens of publications and on popular websites, including The Christian Science Monitor, YES! Magazine, Prevention, Common Dreams, Nation of Change, Reader Supported News, The Daily Good, Truthout. I also write for forward-thinking businesses and organizations. I’ve written about topics ranging from conservation agriculture to conscientious business practices to family-friendly prison reforms.
We face huge personal challenges and monumental environmental and societal problems. But every time I research and write about a topic, I’m amazed by how simple the solutions usually are. Eating local and seasonal food. Walking. Connecting with nature. Building and nourishing strong families. Simple habits have a huge effect on our lives, our communities, and our ecosystems.
I love to hang out where healthy and sustainable meet simple. I enjoy exploring the places where traditional knowledge, cutting-edge research, and practical solutions come together. Did I mention I love simple? Translating complex ideas and confusing jargon are some of my favorite past times.
