One year ago in TreeHugger: 'Twas the week before Christmas, and all through the site, we were celebrating TreeHugger 2.0 to everyone's delight. Though there was at least one lump of coal, fueling B-52 aircraft, but most everybody was in the holiday spirit. Thomas Friedman declared "green" to be the word of the year, so we got into the festive holiday spirit by reviewing TreeHuggerTV's eco-party tips, showcasing the efficiency of LEDs with a festive bike-powered reindeer billboard, found a last minute tree-replacement idea using recycled computer parts and reminded you to wrap your presents with care. We even had time to swing by Gorgeous & Green, Global Green USA's party for some eco-celeb watching. Whew! Wait, was that a solar-bikini sighting?
Fast forward to this year: lumps of King Coal still power our transport, but there's plenty of good greenness to go around this Christmas. We've got tips on a green Christmas menu and found some green stocking stuffers for last-minute gifts. We've moved on from bicycle-powered LEDs to bicycle-powered supercomputers and, rather than recycled trees, we shone the spotlight on green-built gingerbread houses and merry flat-packed Christmas cards. And we even made it back to Gorgeous & Green for a second year. See everything on our radar last year in ::The Archives.
