If you’ve watched the videos on my right sidebar, then you’ve heard San Francisco Mayor Newsom talk. He’s a big time supporter of going green and doing it for all sorts of reasons: it’s good business, good living, good for the city. Right now, according to SustainLane, San Francisco is the #2 greenest city in the United States. Well, SF is putting on a major campaign to be the greenest city in the United States and there’s a new green website to support the cause. www.letsgreenthiscity.com. Simultaneous to the roll-out of the website, letsgreenthiscity placed a total of nine couches throughout the city in various places (City Hall, Alamo Square, Ferry Building, Justin Herman Plaza, in the Castro, etc.). People, including Mayor Newsom, were provided the opportunity to get their picture taken on the couch, have it printed with soy-based ink, and frame it in recycled cardboard. The entire deal is being sponsored by Pacific Gas + Electric Company (PG+E) and ReadyMade Magazine. Oh yeah, and guess what, yours truly is a content partner for the website (unfortunately, my content says it’s posted by "anonymous"). Exciting times!
