Being Green - 'Green' Fuel?

Hi Folks:

I came across both of the articles below on the same day, and both outline similar ideas. If you’re interested in environmental topics you’re likely aware of the process for converting used fry oil into biodiesel, and the process of creating fuel oil using bacteria. But this is […]

Being Green - Another Look at Solar

Hi Folks:

Normally I do my ‘Being Green‘ posts on Fridays, but this one’s been bumped a day. I’ve written two previous posts on energy from the sun: “Going Solar” and “Bottling Sunshine“, but this week I wanted to highlight a couple of ongoing projects that are really addressing this […]

Being Green - Going Beyond Design

Hi Folks: Been a little quiet here on the ‘Being Green‘ side of our blog for a while, but I wanted to take a moment to highlight a couple of articles I came across recently. Actually, in starting this I remembered a somewhat similar post I had written, which as fate would […]

Being Green - Finding Inspiration

Hi Folks:

One of the amazing things about the internet is the ability to connect people in ways that simply wasn’t possible before. The ‘net of course isn’t a ‘place’ in itself, but an international network that showcases information on every subject imaginable. I often turn to specific sites as […]

Much of the cosmetics industry seems to revolve around the […]

Being Green: The Value of Conservation

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post! In last week’s post I referenced an article titled, “World’s ‘Greenest’ Home? It Depends on What You Mean by Green“. One of the homes mentioned in the article includes:

A California couple, whom The Atlantic magazine has […]

Being Green - Fair Trade

Hi Folks:

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 […]

Being Green: Green Consumers

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. The title for this post was inspired by a couple of articles I read this week. The first was, “It’s not easy being a green consumer“, and it begins with:

Green consumerism has the ring of being […]

Being Green - Celebrating Abundance

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. I usually decide on a weekly topic based on something I pick up during the week past, and for this week’s post I had a few ideas… all of which evaporated when I received a note from […]
