Welcome! Since August 2012, the “Making Ripples” column that continues to be published in the Fayetteville Free Weekly paper has tried to promote awareness of sustainable living and making a difference (“making ripples”) in the world.  There are currently over 200 columns (and growing!) available for free in these archives, which are updated about once a month. A click on any of the categories will expand to a list of columns, with the most recent columns at the bottom of each list.  You can also visit the People Making Ripples page to learn about local heroes making a difference in their communities.  Thank you so much for reading, and commenting!
