TreeHugger Welcomes Roberta Cruger

Roberta Cruger, a freelance journalist, has covered the red carpet and green rooms, green cards and green housing, writing for publications including Salon, Smithsonian, Soma, The Believer, LA Times magazine, and MSNBC websites, among others. Her beats cover the arts and culture, media, design, travel, the quirky, and the environment, and she's edited and contributed to "insider" travel guides, such as a walking tour project for National Geographic Traveler.

When living in the Pacific Northwest, Cruger started writing on the environment for Seattle Weekly and Rescue Magazine's sustainable landscaping column. After moving to Miami Beach, she did a round-up of green celebrity news for Plenty Magazine's "Lifestyles of the Green and Famous" blog. Now based in Los Angeles again, where she previously worked in the entertainment business, she's covering the greening of the Southland – and beyond.
