The Roots of An Ecoholic: Adria Vasil Didn't Grow Up "Green" [VIDEO]
Everything seems to have snowballed from there, she said. She started regularly watching the news with her father and became aware of the things going on in the world around her. Talk of acid rain and rising pollution rates eventually inspired Vasil to do something to make a difference. As a pre-teen, however, there weren't many radical things she could do, so she instead focused on making little changes toward eating and living more sustainably. Eventually, she said, she became more deeply involved in environmental activism. She now appears regularly on CBC News and CTV's Canada AM and has authored a series of books providing readers with practical ways to eat and live better. In her popular columns and lectures, Vasil doesn't preach. Rather, she is, "pro-awareness" and her fun and informative talks focus on making smarter choices that help not only your health and pocketbook, but the planet as well.
