Well this year, we did have a winter! It was short (thankfully! That’s why I moved here from snow-laden New York), but the temps dipped and the mountains were actually capped with snow. I don’t know about you, but I’m so glad it’s warming up again and spring is in the air.

Birds are chirping, flowers are blooming, and I’m loving that it’s no longer getting dark at 5:30 p.m.

This month at Chandler Lifestyle, we bring you our Eco issue in honor of Earth Day on April 22. Inspired by the infinite beauty of the earth—and our desire to preserve and protect it—we compiled an array of eco-conscious and eco-friendly items and destinations. From eco-minded businesses to luxury cars with environmentally friendly features, this issue is a celebration of all things Mother Nature.

Throughout this issue, you’ll find simple ways to be more eco-friendly, from the food you eat to eco-conscious clothing and accessories. Whether or not you have a green thumb, we hope the stories in these pages invoke feelings of gratitude for the wonderful world we live in—and the wonderful people in our community who strive to sustain it. Not sure where to start? When you’ve finished enjoying this issue, we encourage you to recycle it so it can be turned into future magazines. After all, that’s what makes the world go ’round!

Happy spring, Chandler!

Yours,

Michelle Glicksman, Editor
