Unlike Starre Vartan, the subject of today’s In the Spotlight interview I was not raised in a very eco-friendly household. To be fair I grew up in Manhattan in the 80′s; consumption and consumerism were all the rage. Growing up we went through paper towels and bottled water like they were going out of style (actually they were!) We used tons of plastic and cleaned our house with incredibly toxic chemicals. We never thought about where our food came from or concerned ourselves with eating in season. Pineapple in NYC in February? Great!
