Green by Design: This Wednesday in New York


Loyal readers of these pages are largely aware that the term "environmentalist" does not automatically mean "tie dye and Birkenstocks" anymore (not that there's anything wrong with that); we're all about promoting the modern aesthetic mixed with "green design" as the biggest thing since sliced bread. It makes sense, then, that TreeHugger is well-represented at a lecture called "Green by Design." It's happening this Wendesday, June 28, at the 92nd Street Y in New York, and features TreeHugger's own intrepid green designer, Dominic Muren, as well as Robert Frenay, the author of Pulse: The Coming Age of Systems and Machines Inspired by Living Things and Yael Alkalay, the founder and CEO of red flower, a line of beauty products made with organic and sustainable botanicals. Hear about the next wave of environmentalism and how it will shape every aspect of your life, from wardrobe to work, hearth to home, vacations and more at the Steinhardt Building, 35 West 67th Street at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $12.00 in advance, available from their site, and $15 at the door. We recommend it for anyone who wants to jump on the bandwagon and ride the crest of the wave of the future. ::Green by Design
