I was of course thinking of a Spring green outdoor shot for green Wednesday, but then Stephanie’s green day post reminded me, duh, a huge part of our life is about the green, why not show that? I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned what Tim does before. He’s a website developer for a non-profit agency devoted to "strategies for livable communities", Center for Neighborhood Technology. (he’d kill me if I didn’t pipe in here that he did NOT design their homepage) It’s a fantastic organization with many very cool programs and I’ve learned so much since Tim started working there. If you have a chance click around…
green infrastructure – the connecting of green spaces in a landscape – green roofs and raingardens and all sorts of fun stuff.
green mapping – more on green infrastructure, with maps for you map geeks.
green building – this one is very cool, CNT is one of only 2 buildings in Chicago and a handful in the world that received the Platinum certification for green building standards.
and for some blue (clear air), travel matters (similar to the ecological footprint Steph linked to), airhead (emmissions calculator and more) and the super popular car sharing program I-GO which has just come to Oak Park!
