Green dream becomes reality in Oakland

Last Sunday, a dream came true on a street corner near downtown Oakland, California.

Inspiration Café : Student Leadership in Chicago

Where does your inspiration come from? Does it come from your family? What about a friend or a co-worker? Are you inspired by what you see in the media? Where does your inspiration come from?

And Saturday, September 25th, Chicago had inspiration fever!

Think of all the energy, oil, and money we're wasting by making plastic bags that end up in our oceans, food chain, and landfills! Check out actress and activist Ingrid Walters share her DOT - packing down her carbon footprint... one bag at a time.

(Not) Waiting on the World to Change

"It's hard to be persistent when we're standing at a distance, so we keep on waiting on the world to change..."

What does John Mayer have to do with anything? Well, he brought this blog post upon himself when he decided to debut one of my favorite songs, Waiting on the World to Change, in 2006.

Honestly, whenever I hear this song, my mind is unfailingly drawn to global warming. Here's why...
