Thank you for your interest! Simplify, Live, Love is a PR friendly blog that enjoys showcasing brands that help our audience achieve their green and eco-friendly life choices.

Simplify Live Love is written/edited by Michelle Marine, a bilingual, semi-crunchy mom of four living on five acres in Eastern Iowa. Michelle has a snarky sense of humor, an MA in English Linguistics, and a BA in German. Twelve years abroad in Europe and Asia fueled her passion for greener living, Great Pyrenees dogs, backyard chickens, solar power, and passive houses.

In an ideal world, Michelle would live like Barbara Kingsolver and eat only locally produced food. Her blog, Simplify Live Love, encourages busy families to slow down, make healthy changes, and enjoy life.
