Business: The Envirolution Club talks trash, Life Coach Fanny Muller offers services
Living a created and successful life
Fanny Muller was born in Paris, France and has lived in the U.S. for the last 26 years. As she has traveled in the world, Muller has been dedicated to her own spiritual paths of transformational healing and now offers her services as a qualified Life Coach.
During her life she has traveled a wealth of singular and interlocking paths of learning, healing, expression and metamorphosis, while moving from Paris, New York City, the Hawaiian islands, and now Tahoe. There is knowledge gained from navigating the currents of such change. The art of transitioning is often the most vital part of fulfilling one’s life goals. A quarter century of continued personal growth that allows Muller the understanding to be a successful Life Coach. She is certified thru CTI and Transformational Coaches Center and additional educational programs.
She believes in continuous evolution through her own education. This keeps her abreast of the latest information, while maintaining knowledge of ancient healing.
Muller is dedicated to helping others transform their lives. The restrictions that many of us mistakenly place on ourselves can be lifted, so that which is truly desired may be achieved. She gives you tools to enable you to release the negativity that keeps you bound to a limited life in a safe, caring environment. By activating these teachings we may all lead a created and successful life.

This year, SWEP is partnering with Envirolution, a non-profit organization that works to facilitate the expansion of the sustainability movement.
The Truckee High School Envirolution club is starting off with an energy audit of the THS campus with the help of Alex Gamboa (Executive Director of Envirolution) and Peter Mayfield (Executive Director of Gateway Mountain Center). Their mission is to develop collaborative platforms that advance sustainability, grow the green economy, and empower the next generation of leaders (envirolution.org).
Currently there are about a dozen active members in Envirolution that are also working on a Service Learning Project called “Create Your Change,” with support from SWEP Project Director Missy Mohler and Executive Director Christine McMorrow. There are two parts to this project: The Trashion Show and Entre Cycle, a green recycling entrepreneurship.
Both of these projects will incorporate the partnership of many other schools and will culminate at Earth Day this year on April 19, 2009, in Squaw Valley.
“Create Your Change” Green Gift Boxes: Right now, as the holidays approach, Envirolution club members are showing up at gift fairs and creating gift boxes from old calendars and magazine covers. These boxes create no waste; each one is unique and beautiful.
“They recently used old Christmas cards to create gift boxes, and figured a way to fold them so the message shows,” said Mohler. Learn from these gifted students at First Friday’s in Brickelltown, Dec. 5 and 19, from 4 to 8 p.m., right next to LuLu and Drakes. They will show you how to fold post cards, magazines, calendars into bows, boxes and perhaps, a snowflake ornament.
Earth Divas: Students are finding many ways to recreate trash products into usable items such as backpacks, purses, wallets and more. Their plan is to employ the help of all students in the school district by having them help in collecting the trash items they need to make their products. Envirolution club members are getting their assembly presentation together now and hope to get to all of the schools in January to make them a part of the Create Your Change service learning project.
High Trashion at Earth Day
Lastly, club members are planning a Trashion show for Earth Day 2009! That’s right, they are designing fashions from trash to debut at Earth Day. As one of the Envirolution students put it: “The outfits are not that functional, but high fashion isn’t supposed to be functional. It is supposed to allow you to see what could be.”
Students will be selling their earth diva wares at the Earth Day Festival. The Envirolution club members hope that these many projects will help raise local awareness about the eco chic ways trash (that would otherwise sit in a landfill) can be created into something usable and fashionable. Being truly “green” is about conserving. The money they raise will go toward projects that reduce the carbon footprint of Truckee High and other environmental endeavors.
