Hail the Green Coffin Yes, We Said Coffin
We don’t make these up....
This one we rather like, since we’re “in” furniture and all. Seems an Los Angeles-based (although their website doesn’t say exactly where in LA) bunch of green-minded folks have taken the idea of recycling to the grave - and back – by retooling 18-gauge steel
Is the Answer Blowin’ in the Wind?
Seems there’s been quite a lot of hot air..um..news about wind power lately.
This just in (and we’ll call it If a wind turbine turns in Oregon, will the lights go on in Los Angeles?): Southern California Edison recently announced it has signed a two-decade contract with Oregon-based DC
News of the Green: Especially of the Office Kind
