a mixed bag of green news


Share it: for sustainable reading


Time for some green synergy – Raz of has created a holiday gift guide to great green books for this season. She asked 10 eco friendly bloggers for book reviews and recommendations, and compiled the list of suggestions into a 10-part series. You can link to all of the reviews, including the latest one which happens to be mine — A Hot Planet Needs Cool Kids – here.

organic dessert – Christmas or anytime

Found my solution to the “What to prepare for Christmas dessert” quasi-dilemma. Thanks to Team Organic NYC, here’s a simple way to create a refreshing, light and nutritious treat.

All it takes is a few scoops of certified organic acai berry sorbet, vegan whipped cream and a sprig of organic mint. Power up your antioxidant quotient with the acai berry, indulge in a flourish of soy whip and cleanse the palette with a bit of fresh mint.

Look for Soyatoo’s Soy Whip (dairy free, gluten free and cholesterol free) at Whole Foods or veganessentials. Scope out Soyatoo’s Soy Whip ingredients and take a tip from a first-time Soy Whip user before giving it a whirl.

Visit Sambazon, the makers of acai, strawberry and mango sorbet, as well as other acai products, and check out their mission to help preserve the Rain Forest.

Thanks to TeamOrganic, I’ll sleep better tonight.
