Treegloo strives to make their entire line of tablet and eReader cases as eco-friendly as possible. They use sustainably harvested pine, grown here in the United States, and the frames are sealed with a natural resin to create a smooth finish that seals in the wood’s natural moisture to prevent cracking or splitting. The multi-piece frame design cuts down on the amount of wood wasted — many other companies create one-piece frames that waste a monumental amount of wood and require far more energy to produce. The corners are joined with traditional carpentry techniques that make the frame extremely strong, yet flexible if dropped or bumped, reducing the risk of breakage. Each step is done by hand to ensure the highest quality.

All of the paper used to create the liners is Green Seal Certified, Forest Stewardship Council Certified and certified Carbon Neutral Plus. The liners are applied with low-VOC or water based adhesives, and the covers are made with UV resistant, animal-friendly faux leather that has been made in the USA.

    EBT/Food Stamps and Food Access in Greenmarkets This story is near and dear to my heart since I lost my job recently. After some time, it was necessary that I go on Food Stamps. I was sad to think that my health would somehow be affected because of my lower economic status and inability to buy local fresh fruits and vegetables. Boy, was I wrong! I soon learned about the EBT/ Greenmarket Program and the growing list of markets that now accept food stamps! More and more New York City green markets are accepting EBT (Food Stamps)! At Greenmarket locations, customers can now swipe their EBT card at the Greenmarket Info Table in exchange for wooden market tokens. Customers can then shop at the farmers stands using these tokens. This program enables New Yorkers of all economic levels to to buy local fresh fruits, vegetables and other products. Not only does the program increase New Yorkers ability to buy fresh produce but it positively impacts family and community wellness as well as increase revenue for local farmers and vendors.

    I found this project awhile ago and now there future plans to bring a similar project to NYC if the west coast model is successful. This is about a project to take all the garbage floating in our oceans and compile them into a LIVABLE ISLAND. HOW AMAZING IS THAT?!?! The island even plans to have its own food and energy sources! It is just proof that there is still time for us to make masterpieces out of our messes! A few Links- Why I want an Ipad- I have wanted an ipad for a LONG time in order to cut down on my paper and energy consumption in my office. Plus, let us admit, they are pretty dang cool!

    I bounce around from Greensboro and Winston Salem, but one of my favorites is a place about 37 minutes from winston in booneville called Sanders Ridge Organic Farm. They have a winery/vinyard and restaurant. Everything is organic and grown there as you would imagine it would be on a far. Beautiful place, a must to check out.

    I don't know a design story because I am only young but I believe my future local green story would be if my whole street purchased and used solar panels and not as much driving as they do now. I'm very sorry if his is no you entirely wanted as a local green design story but I did try my best 

    Howdy people, I would r e a l l y like to share this link with you ! What is it all about? A movement of people who are ready for action - to make real changes in our regions, our countries, our world, in ourselves. First by mapping and cleaning up the illegal waste littering our countryside. Then by delving deeper into the problems why we are wasting so much. Join us and lots of love from Estonia, KV.

    "Moveable Feast: Fresh Produce and the NYC Green Cart Program" Museum of the City of New York, Ending: Sun Jul 10 10am 1220 Fifth Ave (between 103rd and 104th Sts) (212) Photographers LaToya Ruby Frazier, Thomas Holton, Gabriele Stabile, Will Steacy and Shen Wei were commissioned by the Aperture Foundation to document NYC's Green Cart Program, designed to expand access to fresh fruit and vegetables. The resulting work, on display at MCNY, gives a varied view of the city across all five boroughs. This sounds like a fantastic idea to get the word out to people. If you search articles for the NY Green Cart program, you will be astounded how little access certain ny neighborhoods have to fresh fruits and veggies ~BorninBKLYN

    I subscribe to for fresh, local organic produce for my family. It gets delivered weekly right to my building in NYC from local farms in Westchester, NY and the flavor of the fruits and veggies can't be beat! Its amazing! I highly recommend it! They also can deliver eggs! Another favorite local. organic business of mine is They deliver fresh, local organic milk to your door in NYC! It arrives cold and in glass bottles to boot! I think both these businesses are amazing and help me be greener! And also provide my kids with healthier food to consume!! XOXO, NYCmama
  20. japaranian May 4, 2011 at 1:45 pm This lovely place has started a program in which they will be delivering organic produce to our workplace every week for the summer months!!
