10 Tips for an Environmentally Healthier and Greener Travel Experience 13.1.2017 Green on HuffingtonPost.com
As part of my annual New Year's intentions, I look at the areas where I can improve my carbon footprint. For me, there's no question that travel is the area I can most improve upon. I started traveling long before anyone worried about the carbon footprint it left behind. I inherited the travel bug from my mother who had been an airline stewardess before she was married. We traveled as a family, then it was off to school, going to Europe after graduation and then to California where I eventually worked as an ad sales rep for Travel and Leisure Magazine where I really earned my wings with a territory that included Asia Pacific and the Southwestern United States and kept me in the air 120 days a year! There was a brief hiatus when I retired from that position to raise my children and settle into a greener, and slower paced life until I launched Greenopia . As Willie Nelson would say I was "back on the road again." Lightening your carbon footprint is the most obvious way to travel greener however, here are ...

Pasta is the last place most of us would think to look for potatoes — and I don’t consider gnocchi a pasta. But they play key roles in some of my favorite Italian dishes. Diced potatoes and trenette, a narrow ribbon pasta, are tossed with pesto in a signature dish from Liguria, Italy; and potatoes...

On Food Waste, the US could learn a lot from Europe 13.1.2017 Environmental News Network
The U.S. tosses a staggering $161 billion worth of food every year. While numerous efforts are underway to address that problem, they are taking place mostly at the local level or in the business sector. While that is necessary, national- and international-level policy has a role to play as well. And that is one area in which Europe is far ahead.

On wildness: Community and control in urban green space 13.1.2017 rabble.ca - News for the rest of us
Friday, January 13, 2017 The city is a structured place. Roads and sidewalks follow mainly straight lines, while houses, apartment buildings, offices and shops march dutifully alongside them, one after the other. Many of us live structured lives within our concrete, highly controlled world, following the schedules, routines, and norms of our workplaces and leisure activities. Urban green space is often no different -- processions of trees stand on manicured turf and garden beds are filled with neat lines of annuals. Community use of park space is defined and limited by a stifling array of municipal policies, bylaws, permits and red tape. The wild and wayward life of a tiny, disproportionately lively square of parkland in Toronto's west end has a lesson to teach us about the rewards of relinquishing ...

'Monster Trucks' is a mild creature-feature ride on the eco-friendly side 13.1.2017 LA Times: Commentary
