Girls Gone Green. This is the kind of sexy environmental idea that makes you wonder why it hasn’t been done much before. And it’s a wonderfully cheeky concept—a calendar full of girls posing for the sake of green.Meet the Habana Girls
Sean Meenan, the owner of eco-eateries Habana Club and the Habana Outpost, has released the 2009 Habana Girls calendar. Each month features one of the waitresses from the restaurants posing seductively—while doing a sultry eco-friendly deed like collecting harvested rainwater or lasciviously tending a wildlife habitat.
All of the proceeds of the calendar go towards Meenan’s non-profit organization Habana Works, which provides free environmental workshops to children, green school supply giveaways, and classes on composting.
The calendar itself, which features the eco-loving ladies on green roofs, at compost stations, even atop the hood of a Lincoln Continental that runs on vegetable oil, is printed with soy ink on recycled paper, and is completely biodegradable. Not that you’d ever want to see these lovely, proactive women—or the principles they’re promoting—be buried under any circumstance.
If you’re in New York, drop by either of the ecoeateries, and snag the calendar there. Or if you’d rather the girls from afar—they don’t mind, really!—visit the Habana Works website.
