Once again this year, many Cascaders responded to the Eco-Heroes Contest, and most of them nominated a colleague who really shine for their eco-friendly habits. Meet your 2013 Eco-Hero!

Valérie Cusson is, without a doubt, one of the most ecologically responsible people you’ll ever meet. As her colleague Julie Loyer puts it, “She’s ecological through and through!” Even as a child, our winner had a symbiotic relationship with nature: she collected leaves in the fall, loved insects and never missed a chance to swim in lakes and rivers. Although she hasn’t changed one iota, she says her awareness became more focused after attending a conference on sustainable design in 2005. “It changed my life, and the way I consume,” she explained.
