  1. Hi Sarah, thanks for the recognition.

    We started building Hello Eco Living for Laura and Chris back in Summer ’09; several BuddyPress upgrades later the full release of the site has now gone live.

    It’s been a real labour of love for us, and your article is a wonderful ‘icing on the cake’.
