Being Earth-chic is hotter than ever

If you know fashion, you know that anyone who says trends cannot be repeated is crazy. Each decade, each era, comes back into our fashion world again and again.

So why, in this economy, does that have to mean buying what’s basically the same outfit each time it appears as part of the “latest season”?!

Awesome! I have some exciting news for you...

Gulf of Mexico oil disaster hits home

The oil disaster is creeping closer and closer to our coast here in Texas, with our neighbors in Louisiana already suffering. This disaster is hitting home as I think of my family and friends that work on offshore oil rigs.

As the disaster continues to unfold, I have to wonder, if what's going down in the Gulf of Mexico was a “wind spill” or “solar spill,” would so many lives be at risk?

Connecting the why

By Pic Walker, ACE Executive Director

I just returned from Disneyland, CA. Yes, that magical park where kids imagination and dreams are embraced like no other place in the world. I was there to celebrate the Disney Planet Challenge -- and the Grand Prize Winners: 6th graders from Mediapolis, Iowa, working hard to save the Bobwhite Quail.

Through conversations with these students in between thrill rides and celebrity sightings, I realized the importance of the connecting with the "why" of what we do.

When it comes to stopping climate change, or compelling anyone to take action, we have to make it personal.
