EcoChi: Ideas for Green Nesting this Winter

The Sleeping Naked is Green segment: Buy Only Fair Trade Tea launched a conversation on fair trade everything! We talked about what fair trade means and how we can get educated about where to find out about fair trade products. Listen to this week’s 5-min segment on fair trade.

Green Diva Lisa’s Take Two segment offered even more detail on great ideas for eco-resolutions for the New Year and ways to keep it simple and succeed.

Our feature interview guest was Debra Duneier, author of EcoChi: Designing the Human Experience. DARN, now it’s recorded for evidence – I got caught up in all the talk about de-cluttering and some of her inspiring ideas for getting ready for winter nesting, and I kind of made a commitment to de-clutter my house! Too many witnesses. Oh No. Fortunately, I have her book, which does have some great ideas. And, I’ve got Green Diva Lisa in my home/office every day and she is a de-cluttering task-master, so I guess I’ll be getting busy with that now! Stay tuned for updates on my progress . . .

We also announced the winner of last week’s Eco Friendly Printer KNOW YOUR GREEN Quiz - Chenoa Ashawasegai, who won a $100 gift certificate to Tekserve! In preparation for next week’s show, which will focus on the latest in green car technology as our favorite green car dude, John Voelcker reports in from the Detroit Auto Show, this week’s Eco Friendly Printer KNOW YOUR GREEN Quiz will be about green cars. The winner of this week’s quiz will get organic t-shirts and a $50 gift certificate. Please go to our facebook page and find this week’s quiz and play to win!
