Just joined and am trying to do my little part. I drive a hybrid, recycle and it's great finding folks who want to take care of our environment. I;m not young anymore but it's never too late to start i guess! :-)

Hi everyone, I am Callicarpa and I am a culinary arts student and I have an assignment to come up with an innovation for our industry. It doesn't have to be already invented it could be future stuff. My idea is to make chef's uniforms out of bamboo, hemp or soy fabric. Chef's get ungodly hot in the kitchen and I think that there is an Green fabric out there that might foot the bill. We are waring cotton/poly and it is a killer in the kitchen. Once you are soaking wet you just don't think about it any more.
I am familiar with Hemp clothing and bamboo towels. One site that I visited said soy is the way to go. I need Breathability, Wicking property and the anti-bacterial property is also important.
They like us to be really pressed out and I don't know if either of these fabrics could look snappy and sharp. My hemp clothing is just very realaxed.
Anyway if anybody can give me some info I would be grateful.
Thanks and I am glad I found your group during my research.
PS: I have a time line on this. Thursday or Friday of this week! Yikes!!!post #95 of 1658/2/10 at 9:29pmpost #96 of 1658/18/10 at 3:25pm
Hey! New to this site. I'm currently a moderator over at treehugger, another great
green site. Our forums let "greenies" from all over the world join discussions; and
I have learned so much from our members.
I became a vegetarian several years ago (for reasons I won't state here because
it's angers the "meat eaters" among us.) It is challenging to shop but I think I
may have become a better cook because of it; I have to come up with new ideas
or die from food boredom.
I'm active against coal via e-mails/letters/local groups/newsletters. I was lucky
enough to be part of Obama's "energy efficient" program for homeowners,
and because of that, I was able to get blown-in (recycled newspapers) insulation,
energy efficient windows, refrigerator and wiring on some bad outlets.
I was recently able to upgrade my car (not new, but newer) and my mileage went
from 17mpg to 30mpg.
I have 3 "roadside saved" cats of varying ages, and a new one just came into
my life recently, so I'll have to get him fixed too; I will not contribute to more
I am child free by choice, ancient by most standards on many of these forums,
have gardened for years/compost/recycle/paperless bills, etc.
I am happy to join another green forum.(I'd be happy to join the mod team if needed)
**Your smilies are better than ours-love em'.
Can we start our own discussions or do we have to wait for the mods to start them?post #97 of 1658/18/10 at 3:36pm
Heya greenteadrinker. Welcome to Green Options. Any member can start a discussion thread here. Due to antispam measures, though, your posts might be subject to more stringent filtering for a while, or be held for moderator approval. That's just because you're new and it won't last forever.
I really like TreeHugger and am glad to see you here!post #98 of 1658/23/10 at 4:02pmpost #99 of 1658/31/10 at 8:46pmpost #100 of 1659/20/10 at 7:46am
My name is Tom, I work at a Solar PV design and installation company based in the UK - EvoEnergy.
We've been going for just over 3 years and have done some interesting installs along the way!
I've only come across this website today, but I'm already impressed by the sense of community here...
I will try to chip in where I can and provide any knowledge or insights from across the pond...

My name is Erika and I'm excited to find this forum. It's user-friendly, and I see I have lots in common with others here.
I am a mom of one with another on the way. Becoming a mom is what inspired me to become more green. I began purchasing organic foods for our family as well as organic baby products. In 2007, when I was looking for information and products there wasn't as much available as there is today. So I decided to create a website, Organic Baby Resource, for parents on the same quest as me. It features organic baby care articles, reviews, coupons videos and tips.
I love chatting with moms and dads about natural baby care and green living so I think I'm going to love it here.
As our family grows I'm seeking and learning more ways to reduce our family's carbon footprint and eat and buy healthier foods. I know I'll glean plenty from others here.

Please excuse my 'hitting' you for a possible answer here, but i'm new to the forum and have just completed an 'extensive' search for the area (if at all) where one might post an intro to the rest of the forum members as i'm wishing to simply extend my welcoming arms in communication with the community here.
Wasn't sure whether you may point me in the right direction?

I'm exited about this site as it seems that there is a lot of exiting articles to read and people to meet.
I wanted to introduce myself. My name is Monica and I upcycle items into practical designs. I just opened an online store: http://eatgree.etsy.com. I am very exited to be participating of such an eco-conscious community.
To not bore you to death I'll give you the link to my blog in case you'd like to read on a bit more about my profile: urbanresources.blogspot.com.
I look forward to reading good articles and participating in such a thriving community.

Hi! my name is Jacques
I am in West Africa, I love this site.
We in Africa know very little about Green Options and global warming, we have started feeling its effects on our crops and the rapid changes of our seasons.
However, it seems like the Westerners are speedly bringing the crises to its unusal peak in our continent, there is a Company now in Liberia called Buchanan Energy Renewable, this company is clearing all tree from the country's dense rain forests in order to fueled their powerplans in Europe and the Americas.
I have always suggested that every individual could plant a tree at least once every two years, this could attracts the formation of lots of Oxygen, reduces carbondiocides and produces more rain.

Just joined tonight. I am a strategy manager in a large UK utility looking at home energy use, smart home, etc. I am a chartered gas engineer and have worked in energy since leaving university. In my spare time I run a few renewable energy and sustainable living websites.

Hi! Just recently joined, looking forward to getting to know you! I'm working alongside Coffee Home Direct right now. (If you're ever looking for green, eco-friendly coffee or coffee makers, they have a huge selection!)
But, beyond my obsession with coffee, I enjoy writing and blogging as often as possible about ways to incorporate green trends and sustainable practices into our every day lives.post #120 of 1653/8/11 at 3:00pm
