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 - Carrot Mobs

Hi Folks:

Been a little quiet here on our ‘Being Green‘ site for the past few weeks, but life has been keeping us busy. I wanted to share an idea I only heard about a few weeks back; the idea started in San Francisco in 2008 but has since spread […]

Being Green: Interconnection

Hi Folks:

A week has come and gone and it’s time for this week’s ‘Being Green’ post. It’s going to be a short post this week; the afternoon sunshine is calling me outside!

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 - Bottling Sunshine

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. Of all of the world’s current ills, one of the largest and most well known is global warming – sometimes called the ‘greenhouse effect’. There are essentially two strands to this problem: one is that plants like […]

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 - 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 […]
