    Vanity Fair Green Issue II: Bigger, Better, Longer Lasting

    April 11, 8:24 PM by Kyeann Sayer in Culture

    It's Vanity Fair, people. We could wax poetic about RFK Jr.'s two articles (one on the Bush administration's environmental decision-maker appointments, another on falconing) or E.O. Wilson's report on the state of the planet. Really, though, we don't

    Burt's Chips During London Fashion Week

    February 27, 4:08 PM by Kyeann Sayer in Green Food

    As the Size 0 row raged on at London Fashion Week, we stuffed our faces. (How fun it is to use the TreeHugger Imperial We when writing about England!) That's right. At London's version of Whole Foods, Burt's Chips stood out as a cute, lightweight and

    An Inconvenient Truth: Oscar Winner

    February 26, 1:18 AM by Kyeann Sayer in Culture

    AP Photo Like nearly every Grey's Anatomy episode, the Oscars generally make me cry and laugh out loud at least twice. This year of feel-good internationalism and "every nominee is a winner" egalitarianism was no exception. However, a brand new, twist

    Ok. There was a lot of criticism of non-film-related marketing at the Sundance this year. It's super easy to approach eco-SWAG and marketing with cynicism. But, guess what? In an all-around optimistic frame of mind, I found myself feeling like that
