”Going Green” Gains Momentum with Organizers

Nov. 28, 2006 – Trostli and Kersh, both professional organizers, lead an interactive discussion on how to reuse, repurpose, recycle and renew everyday items.

“There were so many great ideas shared by both organizers and visitors. I’m always looking for ways to save money for my clients and repurposing items in their homes is economical and ecological”, remarked Ann Jagger, Vice President of NAPO-NC. Other organizers agreed.

Trostil often works with individuals going through life transitions and being able to reuse or repurpose sentimental items helps her clients through these transitions and is good for the environment. Kersh is committed to eco-friendly organizing, and is personally in the midst of a “consumer-free” experiment. Her family of four is attempting to purchase nothing other than absolute necessities for six months. Kersh is recording this experience through her Blog entitled “Enough is Enough” (http://neatfreak.wordpress.com).

The mission of NAPO-NC (the National Association of Professional Organizers, North Carolina chapter) is to provide education, develop relationships among professional organizers, and promote recognition within our local communities. For more information, please visit www.naponc.org.
