A new green blog has come to town: Eco-Snobbery Sucks, which founder Jeffrey Davis started because, he said, "I was tired of seeing eco-snobbery turn both individual people and businesses away from living greener."The site covers everything from energy and resources to food and health to science and politics. There's talk about simple ways to a greener lifestyle, but also about "businesses and people 'that don't suck.'" The hope for Eco-Snobbery sucks is that it'll become a portal for people to find businesses greening their operations in both big and small ways.
Sustainablog gave Eco-Snobbery Sucks some love, introducing readers this way:
Every asked someone "You don't recycle?" incredulously? Told the cashier at the grocery store "I brought my own bags" just a little too loudly? Had a check bounce from a shopping spree at Whole Foods?
You might be an eco snob...
The blog is a place to turn to fight that mentality. Here's Davis, in his own words:
There are lots of people, blogs, and media outlets screaching about how what we're doing isn't "enough" when all that does is paralyze most people from doing anything at all. I wanted to create a place that promotes, salutes, and encourages simple and big steps alike.
I can't say I agree with everything on the site, but that's what constructive discussion is all about, right?
Plus, it comes with a pretty great cartoon.
