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 something […]

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 more […]

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 have […]

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 a […]

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 to […]

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!

The biggest items on the news of late is the after-effects of the earthquake and tsunami […]

Being Green - The Future of Education

Hi Folks:

Saturday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. It’s usually posted on Fridays, but not always… 😉

Anyway, while my blog posts are, by definition, my thoughts and ideas, this week I’m going to dust off the old soap box on a topic that […]

Being Green: Turning Back the Clock

Hi Folks:

Friday once again, and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post. Before I get to that, however, I wanted to add in the following link: How to say “peace” in 100 languages. Always a good idea…

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

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 featured […]

Being Green - Sustainable Prisons

Hi Folks:

I usually start these with, “Friday once again and time for this week’s ‘Being Green‘ post.”

This post started out the same way… I had one idea for a topic, then completely changed my mind and went off in a different direction, started doing research on that, […]
