The Twelve Days of sustainablog: Biofuels, Preachers, and Echinacea
May Day, Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and even Cinco de Mayo… lots to celebrate in May. We had lots to celebrate at sustainablog, also… especially a bevvy of new voices who joined us during the month.
Those new writers got us over our Spring fever slump, and took sustainablog in some very interesting new directions…
- Keith Rockmael reviewed the film A Convenient Truth: Urban Solutions from Curitiba.
- Our friends at Low Impact Living suggested five eco-smart ways to spend your tax rebate.
- GO editorial intern Oscar Cardenas explored the environmental impact of using echinacea to fight colds.
- Guest poster Max Gladwell argued that social media can change the world.
- Product designer Aaron Symanski wondered why every product can’t be sustainable.
- Chad Crawford took note of three “green” religious figures who’d been included in the “TIME 100.”
- Bill Chameides distinguished good biofuels from bad biofuels.
- Justin van Kleek discussed some myths of environmentalism.
- Caroline Savery gave an overview of the fine art of dumpster diving.
- And Sheryl Canter of Environmental Defense Fund explored some green business innovations.
