Sustainable Living in Honolulu: Public Transit, Biking, Renewables, Recycling, Compost, and Local Food
Sustainability is just about the biggest buzzword since synergy or gluten. It’s popping out of more and more mouths (and blogs) because more and more of us are beginning to realize that critical aspects of our daily lives – transportation, food, waste, power production, water management – have become complex systems that aren’t always designed […]
Have a gas guzzler? You could save thousands of dollars and large amounts of carbon emissions by having a more eco-friendly car. But you knew that, of course. But, did you know that how you drive is almost as important as what you drive? It’s true. So to help you save money the next time you […]
The production version of the pedal/electric Smart bicycle quietly debuted at this year’s Detroit Auto Show carrying a $2950 price tag. Along with the price, the bikes carried a features list full of clever, high-end components aimed at making the…
Our favorite green car dude, John Voelcker, Sr. Editor of GreenCarReports.com, came to the Green Diva Studio to talk about the latest in green driving trends and the best green cars to buy in 2014. We got to do a few segments with John, AND a great video on the types of people that buy […]
It is the anniversary of Sandy (the super storm — thank you climate change!), and we here in New Jersey are still not fully recovered — primarily at the shore, but there are some folks inland that had some pretty big changes as the result of Sandy’s wrath. I personally had two cars totaled by one of the neighbors trees
Plug in Electric Vehicle (PEVs) in their first 2½ years on the market have seen about double the sales of hybrid electric vehicles 2½ years after they made their debut in 2000, according to a new report. An Electrification Coalition and Price Waterhouse Coopers study, “State of the Plug-in Electric Vehicle,” finds that PEVs — including Tesla’s […]
I’m not sure what the temperature is where you are, but here in New Jersey we are experiencing a string of seriously steamy days that makes going out the door feel more like walking into a sauna. Everyone seems a little cranky and we are all getting weary from talk of the weather and idiotic posts on Facebook about popped corn and God cooking NJ (yes, I am guilty of sharing both of these, because they made me LOL at a weak moment and I just couldn’t help myself).
I’m thrilled to be participating in Toyota’s Prius Plug-in MPG Challenge. For the next 30 days, I’ll be driving a Prius plugin hybrid to win money for Eleventh Hour Rescue. I’ve got some serious competition with my green colleagues – Earth Day New York, Inhabitat, EcoKaren, Green Living Guy (aka Green Dude Seth Leitman), Green-4-U, and New York Green Advocate.
The Toyota Prius has been around for a long time — well, since 1997. When Toyota introduced the Prius it became the world’s first mass-produced hybrid passenger vehicle. Since its inception in 1997, Toyota has created several generations of the hybrid — while improving on its technology, reducing its cost, and improving on the EPA-estimated ratings for […]
Biodiesel can be made from a variety of sources. Oil seed crops are some of the most reliable because they can be grown easily, but another common source is used restaurant oils, comprised mostly of vegetable oil but may also include lard or beef tallow, or other forms of animal fats. Despite its biological origins, […]
We not only celebrated Valentine’s Day, but the addition of a new furry green diva, Gracie Mae. GD Meg rescued Gracie Mae, who came up from Texas to Eleventh Hour Rescue here in NJ. Gracie Mae is a gorgeous 5-year old dog that is ALL love, wags and licks and only had one sneezing fit during the broadcast
With Valentines Day just a week away its pretty hard to escape all those heart-shaped, pink and red candies. While they may seem temping, many of them contain GMOs.
It is easy to get caught up in the idea of a shiny new car, but I wanted to remember some simple ways we can make whatever car we are currently driving a little greener and save some money while we’re at it!
You know you want to brag to some snotty kids some day that, “back in my day, I biked to school, uphill both ways, in the snow and rain…and I LIKED IT!” Even if you don’t want to rub it in to some spoiled kids, you might just want to continue bike commuting in the […]
You’re probably aware that there are a lot of new electric cars coming out. Thanks to California zero-emissions regulations, which have been adopted by several states in the northeast as well as the northwest, many car manufacturers have incentive to create new zero-emission electric cars. Good right? Well . . .
