We had Green Dude Eco Ed Schwartz back in the studio, so things were a bit more energetic than when it is just us Green Divas. Excellent special report from Brittany Gordon of the EPA about their Team Energy Star campaign to help raise awareness with young folks about saving energy. Green Dude Eco Ed did an excellent report on the heels of the Energy Star fun on climate change and simple things we can do to help reduce our carbon footprint. GD Mizar’s DIY included a wino, I mean organic wine review and tutorial on making garden lanterns out of all those old wine bottles!
Our featured guest, Kristee Rosendahl, founder of SmartGardner.com got lost in the wrong time zone and missed her cue, but we promise to get her on again soon!
But first, GD Mizar had fun trying on her new Naya shoes . . .

Special GD Report: Brittany Gordon, EPA – Team Energy Star
Our recent GD Correspondent, Diane MacEachern (BigGreenPurse.com) from the GreenSisterhood, introduced us to the Team Energy Star campaign and the EPA‘s Brittany Gordon, who called us to talk about getting young people (and all of us) more involved in reducing our carbon footprint. We noticed while we were on the air, we noticed that the phone we were talking to Brittany on had an Energy Star label on it . . . of course.
Green Dude Report: Eco Ed on Climate Change and Ways to Reduce our Carbon Footprint
Eco Ed carried on the conversation and talked more about climate change and offered us some ways to reduce our carbon footprint.
- First understand what your carbon footprint is
- Then understand what your highest carbon output is from
- Here in NJ the top two culprits are transportation and home energy use
He offers some great tips on both of these including links:
New Jersey Clean Energy – for NJ folks to find incentives for energy reduction
DsireUSA.org – for national database of incentives for energy reduction
Green Living Solutions – energy consultants for residential and commercial (Eco Ed’s company!)
