Black is the New Green

Hi Meltingpot Readers,

I'm on deadline today, writing a story about African-Americans going green for a local sustainability magazine here in Philly called, Grid.

I am having a great time reporting the story, finding new ways to go green, talking to people who are making significant changes in their communities and in the city at large, and talking to people like author Dianne D. Glave, who argues in her new book, Rooted in the Earth, that African Americans have been green, "long before the birth of the modern environmental movement."

So, I don't have time for a full post here, but I wanted to leave you with a video about the coolest, most innovative way to tackle our carbon footprint and live in harmony with the earth. Be prepared to be inspired.



FYI, Earthships are coming to Philly, and I plan on living in one, some day. Seriously, I'm going totally green!
