Congratulation to Jaymi Heimbuch – this week's Climate Community Citizen of the Week.
We met Jaymi thru her exceptional reporting at Treehugger. Jaymi is one of Treehuggers excellent young writers – with a focus on energy tech. (And she is the second writer – the first being Emma Grady – from Treehugger that we have been lucky enough to get to know and have as one of our weekly winners.)
Jaymi's interest in the environment can be traced back to the age of eight when she wrote to the Smithsonian Institute with questions about why her acid rain detection kit's pH strips were turning orange instead of a shade of green as the charts indicated they should. While she never received a reply, her concern for the environment continued to grow, as did her passions for the written word, social activism, and technology as a tool for social and environmental change. She received her degree in English from California Polytechnic State University, San Luis Obispo in 2004, and married her loves of writing and green technology while working as Managing Editor for EcoGeek.org. She is now dedicated to covering all things techy, gadgety and green for TreeHugger.
Once again congratulations to Jaymi and keep up the great work!
