Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. Imagine getting up every morning and going to work, but discovering on payday that you have to pay your boss for being there… Sounds silly, right? Consider then that of the roughly 8 million tonnes of coffee […]

The talk was called, “Biomimicry in Action: Using Nature-Based Principals to Promote Sustainable […]

Being Green - Thanksgiving

Hi Folks: It’s Thursday as I write this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post, even though you won’t get to read it until tomorrow. It’s just that tomorrow also happens to be the birthday of someone very special to me, and, well, we have other plans.

Today is also Thanksgiving for our […]

Being Green - Greenbuild 2010

Hi Folks:

A short ‘Being Green‘ post this week, and a day late it is, too. T’is now November 20, and that means the Greenbuild International Expo is winding down for this year; people are taking down their booths and taking in their final tours of the ‘Windy City’. I […]

Being Green - 'Biophilic Design'
