Terri Bennett is the heart and soul of the Do Your Part team. Officially, she’s the founder of Do Your Part and President of Content and Production. Behind the scenes, she’s involved in all of the content we produce, she’s the face of our Do Your Part feature videos and she uses her scientific background to make sure we deliver information you can trust. Before launching Do Your Part, Terri was the Chief Meteorologist at the NBC affiliate in Charlotte, NC. She spent more than 16 years providing weather forecasts in Charlotte and was actually the first (and only) female Chief Meteorologist in the market. Her work only fueled her passion for protecting the planet. While providing nightly weather reports and covering major weather events, Terri branched out into producing television segments about protecting our water supply in a series named “WaterWise” and hosted another segment on natural gardening techniques known as “Terri’s Garden”. Her work on television earned her the title of “Best Weathercaster in the Carolinas” numerous times, two prestigious Emmy awards, and the “Excellence in Science
Reporting” from the American Meteorological Society. After leaving the television business in 2007, Terri’s passion for the environment created the Do Your Part idea and its core mission.
Terri wants the world to know that going green is easy, economical, and important. Her practical, eco-friendly, and economical Do Your Part tips and solutions can be found online, on television and in print across the United States. She authors a weekly Do Your Part syndicated newspaper column for McClatchy-Tribune Information Services and her first book “Do Your Part: A practical guide to everyday green living” was published in 2011. She is a regular green contributor to HuffingtonPost.com and her weekly Do Your Part video segments can be seen on various cable and digital television networks.
Terri has three children and a smart, beautiful daughter-in-law. She spends her spare time in her garden or with one of her four-legged friends.
