Change is in the air. The fall season is right around the corner (is it too late to plan a vacation?), Paris Hilton is running for president, and I am finally eco-decorating my apartment after living here for a year with virtually no furniture. I will miss the $14 electricity bill and the shock on people’s faces when they walk through the door. Surprise, it’s empty but look at the view!
But the most exciting change is a bright green one. After years of being an unofficial team, Zem
Joaquin and I are becoming an official green team at her Ecofabulous, the treasure
chest web site showcasing the best of green and fabulous. Those editors sparked and led by Zem are tough let me
tell you. Sustainable furniture is
ripped apart, green cleaning products are put to the test, eco-shoes are
heavily scrutinized, and organic alcohol occassionally must be sampled. If your product isn’t fabulous and fully eco,
you have about as much chance of getting profiled as an Escalade.
At Ecofabulous, my position is VP of Special Projects, which means I am covering a wide range of mysterious and not so mysterious initiatives including events, greening, journalism, cleantech, and the search for alien life. I am happy to be teaming up with my eco partner in crime, with whom I have already accomplished so much. And let's give credit where credit is due. Without Zem, I'd still be wearing clodhopper shoes from Ann Taylor.
What is to become of Heart of Green? It is still me at my core. I will continue updating the site with planet-chic events, amazing causes and charities, side adventures in eco-fashion, and posts on subjects I feel are being underrepresented out there. Get ready for some outrageous topics coming up. Green is a journey and a more thrilling and possible one every day.
