M_Hemingway2Happy Birthday Green Diva Meg! Last week the very sick GD Meg turned 50 with Grace (her new rescue dog Gracie Mae), dignity and phlegm! We tried not to be too funny, because this would send her into gales of coughing.

We finally got to talk to the inspiring Mariel Hemingway!

But first, a big thank you to  Green Diva Correspondent  Sandy Holtzman for telling us about Bixby Bars and to Bixby Bars for sending us samples to of their unusual, delicious, and seriously sustainable chocolate bars. Bixby Bars are organic, fair trade, GMO-free, and combine fine chocolate, a dried fruit and a spice to create a drool-worthy treat.

Green Dude Segment: Eco Ed Schwartz – Residential Solar Energy 201

Green Dude Eco-Ed joined us once again and did the second in his series on residential solar energy. He talked in more detail about how important it is to invest in solar energy and the different ways to do it.

  1. State & Federal Incentives: There are many federal and state rebates offered to homeowners who invest in solar panels. Who knew? New Jersey is the second best state for refunds right behind California. It is very possible to earn your initial investment back quicker than you think. Go to the Database of State Incentives for Renewables & Energy to find out about incentives where you live.
  2. Lease: If it is too expensive to purchase solar panels, you can always lease for a more budget friendly monthly charge.
  3. PPAs Power Purchase Agreements: PPAs are financial agreements in which the solar panel developer owns, operates, and maintains the panels, and the customer agrees to let the developer to essentially rent their roof.
  4. New Construction: Green Dude Eco-Ed also had a tip for architects building new homes-Design a house so if the owner doesn’t want solar panels on it now, another owner can easily install them in the future.

Feature Interview: Mariel Hemingway

Mariel Hemingway

We finally got to talk to one of our Green Diva heroes, the beautiful and inspiring actress, author and activist, Mariel Hemingway. She is one busy lady these days with a documentary about her life as a Hemingway, Running From Crazy, and her new book, The Willing Way and many worthy projects in between.

The Willing Way is born from Mariel and partner Bobby Williams’ passion for healthy, conscious living. Her passion came through the airwaves and we were all feeling it. We loved hearing that it wasn’t another ‘self-help’ book touting “this is THE way to happiness . . . ” Mariel quickly described that The Willing Way is all about helping people find their OWN path to passionate, conscious, healthy living.

Mariel is an awesome Green Diva, and we are all in love her. She said she will come to the studio and do the whole hour show with us when she is in New York promoting the book in April. Let’s hope we can get into her busy schedule in April!

Spanning 50 years of grassroots and global activism, this Sundance documentary brings to light the vital stories of the environmental movement where people fought – and succeeded – against enormous odds. From halting dams in the Grand Canyon to fighting toxic waste at Love Canal; from Greenpeace to Chico Mendes; from climate change to the promise of transforming our civilization, A Fierce Green Fire is “nothing less than the history of environmentalism itself.” (Los Angeles Times). Official Selection Sundance Film Festival.

Occupy Love

Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper (Scared Sacred, Fierce Light) on a journey deep inside the revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet, as he asks the question, “How could the crisis we are facing become a love story?”

Occupy Love explores the growing realization that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning. The old paradigm that concentrates wealth, founded on the greed of the few, is causing economic and ecological collapse. The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound awakening:  millions of people are deciding that enough is enough –  the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life.

The film connects the dots in this era of rapidly evolving social change, featuring captivating insider scenes from the Egyptian Revolution, the Indignado uprising in Spain, Occupy Wall Street in New York, the environmental movement and beyond. Woven throughout the action oriented backbone of the film is a deep exploration of public love, and compelling stories of an emerging new paradigm. It features some of the world’s key visionaries on alternative systems of economics, sustainability, and empathy, including Naomi Klein, Bill McKibben, Jeremy Rifkin, and bell hooks.

Occupy Love is a moving, transformative, heartfelt film, featuring Ripper’s signature stunning visuals and rich soundscapes. A powerful cinematic experience leaves viewers inspired.
