Ann Arbor, Michigan has a saying and it is repeated all year long, "Go Blue". While I still think its great to be blue it's also really really great to be GREEN as well in Ann Arbor.

- green awareness 2008: We were green when green wasn't cool. - 03/13/08 09:37 AM
It seems that, today, green is all the rage. It's hot, hot, HOT! Suddenly, in every magazine, newspaper, online forum, "green" is on everyone's lips (or fingertips). It's an overnight sensation! However, like most overnight sensations, that's not the whole story. Like the movie star who worked as a carpenter to ... (1 comments)

After reading janeAnne's post yesterday about the 'Green is red hot' contest, I thought to myself how fitting her words for a title depicting a contest about what is happening in the world today. Not specifically THE world, but more specifically the developed world. Then on further thought, I realized those ... (2 comments)

Philadelphia is the home of the EAGLES. Green is our favorite color. ( atleast for most of us ) I hope even those who are not EAGLES' fans like the color of money.

- green awareness 2008: The Mean Green Machine - 03/12/08 09:06 PM
For many years I thought being in the green was way more important than being green. I also was under the misconception that you couldn't do both.

- green awareness 2008: "Going Green" without Spending a lot of "Green" - 03/12/08 05:24 PM
It seems like every time we hear "going green" it seems to entail spending a lot of "green" to get there. Many of these new and innovative ideas are great, but do you have thousands of dollars stuffed under your mattress to pay for them? So you don't have the "green" to "go green?"
Then this is ... (9 comments)
