Worldchanging Nature

This is part of the Jetson Green birthday giveaway, so make sure to leave a comment by midnight Friday, July 25, 2008, if you want to be considered for the contest.*

If there’s anything that I’ve learned from you the reader, it’s that you’re (1) concerned for the environment and (2) smart, engaged, demanding, and relentless in your pursuit of quality information.  For that reason, I’ve decided to giveaway two books together as kind of a bundle to one commenter.*  The first book is Worldchanging: A User’s Guide to the 21st Century in paperback.  The forward was written by Al Gore and the rest was edited by Alex Steffen — it’s 600 pages full of legit solutions.  The second book is Nature and Selected Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson.  What can I say about this book other than it contains over 15 classic writings that have influenced thousands and thousands of people.  Both books are highly influential, both books are perfect for smart Jetson Green readers.

Giveaway: MOO Green Pack of Eco- friendly Business Cards

MOO Green Business Cards

This is part of the Jetson Green birthday giveaway, so make sure to leave a comment by midnight Friday, July 25, 2008, if you want to be considered for the contest.*

I’ve been a MOO mini-card customer for probably two years and am what you might call a gargantuan fan of the company.  Every time I give someone a MOO, I get a reaction from them.  I gave one to Ed Begley, Jr. and he was blown away by the small design.  So I was excited to hear that MOO began offering eco-friendly business cards within the last couple weeks.  I designed a set using Jetson Green logos (imported from Flickr) and they shipped to me in a snap.  They’re absolutely incredible, too.  I just love the look and feel of these green business cards.  If you want to get a set, MOO Green cards come in a 50 pack with pricing from $21.99 plus shipping.  They’re made with 100% recycled fiber, completely recyclable and biodegradable, and totally chlorine free.  Plus, they look so good and you can make as many unique cards as you have imagination.

Pringlecreek

Pringle Creek Community is comprised of 32 acres of re-developed land, including protected wetlands, in Salem, Oregon.   The community boasts a wealth of sustainable features.   More than 80% of the existing trees have been preserved and the homes will be constructed using 100% FSC certified wood.  The streets in the community are narrow, allowing for more green space and their well-designed "green street" system means that 90% of the rainwater will filtrate through the soil, recharging the aquifer.
