***Thank you for your interest in Going Green DC. The site is currently on hiatus. The information below is archived from when the site was active.***
Over the past few years the DC green and sustainability community has blossomed. We launched in 2008 because there was a void in local, online green information and resources. We’re not die-hard treehuggers–just eco-aware people trying to live a greener life. We write about the things that interest us the most including organic restaurants, the local food movement, urban farming, natural health and beauty, green events, sustainable communities, and local eco-friendly businesses.
Sacha Cohen created Going Green DC in 2008 to support DC’s burgeoning sustainability and green community. A former journalist who wrote for such publications as the Washington Post, Kiplinger.com, Washingtonian and many other print and online publications, Sacha saw a demand for information about how to live a greener, more environmentally conscious life in the Nation’s Capital.
Sacha is also the founder and President of Grassfed Media, a boutique communications firm that creates intelligent, engaging content and strategic PR and social media marketing campaigns for companies and organizations that are in the business of making the world a better place.
A long-time DC resident (born in the UK; raised here since age 7), Sacha spent her formative years on the mean streets of Cleveland Park and attended Maret High School. After stints in New Orleans, Madison, WI, and Chicago, she returned to DC in 1995. She is a long-time yoga practitioner, organic food lover, arts advocate, and counts Alice Waters, the Dalai Lama, and her mom among her heroes. Sacha lives in Arlington with her husband, Jason and their pit bull Polly. She can be reached at email@example.com.
