Never Too Small


I’ve noted before one of my fave little quotes, collected while doing some work for Greenpeace: "If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping in a closed room with a mosquito." Apparently it’s an African proverb, but I think it equally applies to TreeHugger. Nearly two and half years ago, Graham Hill launched a modest little website. Very much the mosquito in the vast big blog room. I was lucky enough to be one of the original writers. We were tiny, no-one knew we were there, but Graham had a vision and wasn’t going to give up on it easily. And now, with almost 9,000 posts in the bag, we receive millions of page views a month, and sometimes rate in the top 50 of all blogs on the web. Amazing. Thanks to you, our ever expanding wave of readers keen to improve the quality of your lives, and the quality of the planet that gives you life. As I pass the 1,000th post milestone, with a outdoor apparel post that takes me back to my roots in eco-design, I want to tip my hat to Graham for his passion and leadership. And also to the inspiring team he has assembled, from Buenos Aires, to Beijing, Tel Aviv to Toronto. It is an honoured privilege to be aboard, with a such dedicated bunch of people. A special 'Hi' to Meg and Kevin, for fond memories of those embryonic days, when it was just us, reading each others posts!
