TomatoDesign.Net is proud to announce our NEW page of GREEN LINKS: 40+ of the finest green American businesses, featuring high quality, eco-friendly, fair-trade products and services:

http://tomatodesign.net/greenlinks.html

This month’s features:

Jalima Coffee: The best-tasting coffee in the world! (And I’m not prejudiced!) All the proceeds from their fair-trade products go back to the farmers in Chiapas, Mexico (where I used to live and drive a jeep as a wetback for the Mex. government, in the Selva Lacadona jungle!) For more information, go to: http://www.jalimacoffee.com/index2.html.

Holy Creations: Superb Palestinian olive oils, made the old-fashioned way, in Nablus. They also feature exquisite olive-wood carvings: both products at a fraction of what you’d expect to pay for such high quality. For more information on their fair-trade and eco-friendly products, go to: http://holycreations.com/.

Today is October 15th, and this is Blog Action Day: we are supposed to write about environmental issues, and I’m barely making it in time!

On my site I feature the “Green Tomato Award”, at http://tomatodesign.net/greentomatoaward.html. Here you can learn about 3 of my favorite clients whom TomatoDesign is singling out for having made a real contribution to the planet, human life, and (yes) even Global Warming, as we all know and love it.

Check it out!

Concern for the environment has been a real issue in my family, ever since my parents tried to build a “green” commune on the Door Peninsula of Wisconsin in 1940. Wisconsin, under the aegis of Aldo Leopold, has been in forefront of this battle since the 1930s and before, so it wasn’t an accident that they bought the land for their lifetime experiment there.

I strongly urge you to Google Aldo Leopold, as well as Loren Eiseley and Rachel Carson, if you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading their wonderful books.

Happy Environment Action Day!
