It’s a beautiful morning here in Marin and Adrian and I are getting ready for a school field trip. I’m not sure how we lucked out but our co-op is going to Slide Ranch on the coast near Muir Beach.

Last year at Slide Ranch we talked about nature, soil, plants, milked goats, pet the baby sheep, cradled chickens and nibbled on organic edible flowers.

If you’re ever in the area, bring your family. It’s a great place to spend some time and get down with nature.

Enjoy your Earth Day and if you get to this post before May 31st, you can continue to use an Earth Day discount coupon for our tees. ‘EARTHDAY20’.



Go EPA!

April 15th was not only Tax Day here in the USA, but Go Day for the EPA!

They announced $600 million in new funding through Obama’s American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. What does this mean? Finally, some money to do something for the environment.

They will be putting this fund solely towards the cleanup of hazardous waste. This means faster cleanup and the creation of jobs.

It doesn’t hurt that it got some press too. The environment needs more of that. All we talk about these days is global warming and carbon credits and melting glaciers. It’ll be nice to see things get a little greener around the country for once. So much pollution and risks to our health…

On another note. I just read an article where some Republicans are bringing in shady religious “leaders” as expert witnesses in congressional environmental/energy committee meetings. The basic argument is that God wants the environment to be as it is and we need to stop trying to change the course of things. Please stop wasting our time and tax money with this crap. Just the facts, eh!

We’re celebrating Earth Day at the Oakland Zoo tomorrow – Sunday, April 19th. If you’re in the area, swing by. They have quite an amazing program on hand that’s free with regular admission.

We’ll be at the Playground Stylings booth selling our organic tees. We’ve added some additional youth sizes as well as tees for Dad too — only available the day of our event.

See you there!

Big shout out to Judith Gorgone of Planetpals for the head’s up on this event. Text taken from WWF.

Turn out. Take action. Be part of this historic event. March 29, 2009, 8:30pm local time. World Wildlife Fund is asking us to turn off our lights for one hour — EARTH HOUR — to make a global statement about climate change and to demonstrate commitment to finding solutions.

Great site! And I love the kids’ section too.

Well done and count me in!



Linked-In as a Green Tool

I have used Linkedin as a business tool for FlashBrigade for over a year. It’s a fabulous way to build community around my business profile… albeit, one that’s ever evolving!

Lately, I’ve joined an awful lot of Green groups through LinkedIn and am meeting a lot of interesting people ‘virtually’ and learning a good deal about what’s going on in the World when it comes to sustainability and eco-business. Check out some of the groups I belong to:

Bright Green, CleanTech, Climate Change – I care, Green, Greentech Media, GreenTek, Opportunity Green….

To all those members: Thanks for the information and education!



Genius Tool for Energy Savings

Just found out what the creators of Flash are up to these days and I’m hoping it will be a ‘killer’ technology that changes our lives.

Check out greenbox, a home energy management platform… based on the success of Flash and the smart factor of the founders of both technologies, it’s bound to find traction in the energy marketplace and become a ‘must have’ for us all.

Guess you can count me as a fan already… but then they had me at FutureSplash.
