Blogger "Dragged Kicking and Screaming" into Green Life


For the month of July, "SUV-driving, multipack-smoking and big-meat-eating blogger" Josh May, 32, will shelve his non-green lifestyle and shack up in an all-green East Hampton house, as part of an initiative dubbed Project GreenHouse Hamptons. May is the mind behind Plum Hamptons, which offers local information on the region, ranging from grilling tips to traffic reports.

"I'm terrified," says May. "I'm nervous about quitting smoking and not having any cheeseburgers and having to bike myself to the store and thinking about what can I get at the store."

As part of the project, May will be punished for straying from his new eco path--for each fall off the wagon (one puff of a cigarette, for example) he must dig a hole and plant a tree.

Owned and designed by architect Edvin Karl Stromsten, the house is 90-percent sustainable and filled to the brim with eco-friendly furnishings. via ::Newsday ::Plum Hamptons More information on eco living: ::Interview with Danny Seo: Eco-Living Consultant to the Stars ::Eco-Living in NYC at The Solaire ::Lifegate: Eco-Living Italian Style
