Sprocket's Roundup

So Much Cool Stuff, We Can Hardly Contain Ourselves

We have things we want to get off our collective chests before we head out the door to the Green Festival in just a few moments here.
First, ARFE is teaming up with Live Green Chicago to sponsor one of their Green Room events. Occuring the second Thursday of every month, the Green Room is a gathering place where folks can gather, learn about environmental causes, have some good locally produced or sustainable (and sustaning) fare and booze, and listen to some terrific music. The events are all carbon neutral, and you meet a lot of great people. We're going to try and team up ours with a good physical activity of some sort, so keep your eyes peeled. If that doesn't happen, though, at least you'll have the following: Booze and planting trees. That's all we can say for now, but keep your eyes peeled for some forthcoming details.
Then, our pals at Live It Green have a terrific consortium of companies that include a T-shirt company that takes one ton of CO2 off the market for each organic cotton T you buy from them. It's called, natch, One Ton CO2, and the Ts are pretty fly.

Forthcoming from Live It Green, as well: Tunes for Trees. Buy music directly via Tunes for Trees. Every ten songs plants a tree. Brilliant! Not live yet, although you can look at their swank logo by clicking on the link above. Our sources say Just a Few More Weeks. We can hardly wait, but we'll let you know when it goes live.

Okay. Now it's off to ride our bicycles to the Green Festival. We'll report when we return.
