My Story

Live Simple Eco  is a blog focused on a green and eco-friendly lifestyle. My name Joann Schermerhorn and I created Live Simple Eco, and I have helped hundreds of earth-friendly and conscious thinkers all over the world better understand how their lifestyle choices impact the earth and how every step counts. 

I used to be a pretty hardcore environmentalist.  I sold my car and most of my belongings, lived in cohousing, used a composting toilet, and built community gardens. 

I am a little more your average Jo now. I live in a small apartment with my husband and cat and we use an actual toilet these days. But I am still dedicated to living a clean, green and eco-friendly lifestyle.

Bill Mollison

WE ARE NATURE. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, we’ve lost our connection to ourselves.

I know it may seem small and insignificant, but it’s not about what it is, it’s about what it can become.
