Living Green!

gerg is totally living greener!

David Foureyes
and I talked about the Living Green Expo this morning, and I want to say to everyone, "Check it out!"

I haven't hyped it too much because I won't be able to make it (on account of my stats presentation for grad school in Wisconsin on Saturday), but you bet I'd be there were I in the area this weekend.

What is living green all about?

Check out the earth friendly fashion show. Look, I'm not sacrificing fashion for sustainability, so they best figure out how to make gorgeous sustainable garments.

Watch a demo of a Grease Car kit.

Being a sustainable agriculture gal, I wouldn't miss the food and agriculture area. We work with several of the crucial groups listed as resources. And let me tell you, these folks are bustin their butts. And no, they aren't all a bunch of hippies.

Could my lifestyle be more sustainable? You betcha. Sustainability is a evolving topic, and for most of us, it's a pretty big shift in mentality. Sure, I grew up growing an organic garden, composting, recycling (before it was picked up curbside), and reusing my lunch bags (pretty embarassing in the 80s), but I'm not an sustainability expert, and it's my fulltime job. At times, I'm downright UNsustainable.

But I care, and I'm trying.
