Greentumble was founded in 2015 by Sara and Ovi with the goal to inspire people throughout the world to open their minds, and change their attitudes and behaviors towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
We believe that big changes require us to work together. As one global community, we need to keep learning about the environment around us and raise our children to environmental empathy, because that is the only way to enjoy unlimited benefits of nature.
We are international couple in early thirties, living somewhere in Europe. Sara comes originally from a small town in Czech Republic and Ovi from a rural area in Romania. But in the past five years we have been living in different locations around Europe–mostly exploring mountainous areas 😊. We even lived for more than one year in a tiny off-grid cabin, but that’s a story for another time…
We met in Austria when taking environmental science classes at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences in Vienna. We fell in love and that’s how our great journey towards creating Greentumble started.
The idea to speak for the environment and do what we like was born couple years later, when we realized how difficult it is to understand what impact our actions have on the environment. Many resources were written in a difficult language that was often too scientific and heavy in terminology. We were aware that it requires lot of research to obtain relevant information, making it time consuming and difficult for many of us to get the answers we seek.
That is how our main goal started to take shape. We decided that we will stand up to the challenge and try to create a comprehensive source of information about current environmental problems, their solutions and success stories.
During our final semester at the university, we got more and more passionate about developing the project. We would sit in the library for hours, researching environmental topics and talking only about our blog, brainstorming names and article ideas every day. And then…
