How We Got Started
Your Daily Thread was created by high school best friends Tracy Hepler and Lauren Johanson. After graduating from college (Tracy @ UC Santa Barbara and Lauren @ University of Richmond), both women spent a year abroad to learn more about themselves and the world. Tracy taught English in Europe; Lauren volunteered at an Indian Orphanage and on organic farms in Thailand and New Zealand.

After moving back to the city they knew as kids, they searched for a source to learn about what there was to do as adults. Their experiences in college and abroad had sparked a growing interest in green living and social good. This prompted them to seek out people and places living out these ideals through out Los Angeles.

Not satisfied with what was available at the time, they decided to create their own guide to explore, connect and traverse the city.

This is how Your Daily Thread came to be, a project from the heart of two best friends.
