Friday 5: Green Friday

Everywhere you turn, green is in the limelight. Thomas Friedman, of the New York Times and A World is Flat
fame, has authored a new green article for the NYT Sunday Magazine,
Vanity Fair has devoted its entire April issue to environmental topics,
and my local papers, the Chicago Tribune and the Chicago Sun-Times,
both have turned out several articles that have caught my attention. Is
this a fad or are people really getting serious about our environment?
Only time will tell, but I am certainly more interested in learning
about what I can personally do to make this world a better place. This
week’s list consists of sites that I’ve found in my online
explorations… a little late for Earth Day, but I suppose every day is
Earth Day now.

Take care,

Lucy Gray
