About This Kind Planet
At This Kind Planet, we believe in the cumulative power of small, everyday changes. At the same time, we understand that the amount of available information can be overwhelming. That’s why we’ve reached out to experts in the environmental field to summarize information to help consumers make better choices. Topics range from sustainable clothing to reef-safe sunscreens and the benefits of a more plant-based diet. We’ll provide you with EcoBits–100 words that summarize preeminent scientific research—as well as updates on the work of environmental innovators, small victories in legislation or science and simple steps that you can take to reduce your own environmental footprint. Together with experts from around the world, we hope to make it a little easier to be kinder to our planet.

While Glenview, IL is where Katherine calls home, her heart can be found in many places around the world. Some of those places include a farm in Door County, WI, under the shady trees of Villa Borghese in Rome, alongside the snails on a Spanish dirt road called the Camino de Santiago, and among the mountains in Alaska. No matter where she goes, Katherine seeks out nature. Her most recent quest led her back to Alaska where she found herself commercial salmon fishing in a village called Bethel. As Katherine has fallen in love with the various inhabitants she has encountered in her travels, she has become passionate about protecting biodiversity. Whether it is a towering redwood tree or a tiny bumblebee, Katherine hopes we can come together to protect all species and peacefully coexist on our wild, beautiful planet.
