Our Story (short version), by Michaela Thomas:
I was born and raised in Prague and, like many mothers, after having children I started to be concerned about all forms of pollution and its effect on the health of my children. This lead to concern about energy, the children of the world and the people in lesser-developed nations, and the role my consumption plays in all that. The more I learned the more I felt how few options we have to change how we live without giving everything up. I wanted to find a way to consume more intelligently. Starting Live Love & Prosper was my way sharing the options I have found.
