A message from TreeHugger HQ: "TreeHugger is trying to track down a designer in the general New York area that is working on an innovative eco invention or design. They would need to be available to be interviewed/shot/followed over the next couple of weeks. There would be a small stipend and the possibility of ending up being the core character in a half-hour television program and getting to pitch the idea to a larger corporation. Sound like you or someone you know? If so, please send a short, descriptive email to jessica at treehugger dot com asap."
About the picture: You can either read deep symbolism into it or decide that we simply didn't know what to put there. Both are valid.
