Sage McGreen is the earthy alter ego of Teri White-Griffin, a recovery Marketing Manager. Brainwashed and beaten by the biggest of big boxes, Teri decided to shift her traumatized talents toward a new green attitude. As Teri’s inner consumer psyche started to heal she heard old fashion advice from a fun loving character named Sage McGreen. Admit it, we all hear snarky voices in our head while navigating the new green age of information. Teri’s blended family of 6 children, and 3 grandchildren benefit from a healthy new approach to a sustainable lifestyle.
The Sage McGreen Blog has links to all Teri’s online endeaveors and participating forums. Always remember the Sage McGreen motto, “Happiness is a recycled something.”
