About

This blog is  a place to share and explore the inspiring, useful and fun ideas and examples of the choices, questions, tools, and actions we make as we navigate how to live “everyday sustainable.”

==========

I’m drawn to the everyday things in life.

When I was 16, I had the fortune of spending three weeks in India (on a Girls Scout program, no less!) and I believe that immersion into a country and country so vividly distinct from my own Midwest suburban childhood catalyzed the incipient anthropologist in me, and a lifelong interest in observing and learning how people navigate their worlds in their everyday lives.

I find myself filtering the everyday through this lens of “everyday sustainable” as I explore broad interests in personal health, caregiving and aging, quantified self (QS), energy efficiency and sustainability, and delightful user experience and design.

I’ve worked in a variety of roles–user researcher, product manager, marketing strategist, ad account manager, health and wellness practitioner and coach–with agencies, startups and Fortune 100 companies. I studied Social Anthropology (BA, Harvard; MA, Stanford), and have had additional training in Acupressure/Traditional Chinese Medicine and Environmental Leadership.

Two previous blogs focus “everyday sustainable” in health and wellness (WakoWa Salon: Everyday Wellness) and sustainability (everyday sustainable, v.1).

Please join me in this exploration by sharing your perspective!

    Dear Wako,
    I can’t find any other contact option on your website, so I try my luck via this comment option. I’m a photographer and I have an ongoing project called EveryDaySustainable, you can find it on IG for example @everydaysustainable . I was looking into buying this domain and found that it is already taken by you. But looking at your website it seems you haven’t been blogging since 2013. I was wondering if I could buy the domain from you and if yes what would be your conditions? You can reach me on info@claudiawiens.com
    Kind regards,

    Claudia
