I was a guest on The Green Divas Radio Show yesterday to promote Team Eco Etsy and announce a big news for the team.
I met Green Diva Meg from The Green Divas Radio Show last week over Vegetable Pad Thai in Union Square, in NYC.
You know the famous farmers market No Impact Man goes shopping for groceries in his movie?
We dished and shared green ideas and how we can collaborate. Then, she asked me to be on the show and I almost choked on some bean sprouts! Her show was booked – I mean, BOOKED, until April, but luckily, she had one spot that became available for Saturday 18th. So I grabbed it faster than a rickshaw speeding by.
Yes, they have bike peddling rickshaws all over NYC now. How green, eh?
Anyway, so I was on the show yesterday, after Ed Begley Jr – you know, the fabulously talented actor-turned-activist? – called in! I guess you can say he was my opening act.
Well, the Green Divas were nice enough to let me talk and talk and talk incessantly about Team Eco Etsy! And all the wonderful things we are doing but especially about the big news I’ve been biting my lips for a month!!
The BIG News
We’ve been invited to be on Practically Green – a totally awesome site that helps users to be greener by having them take a detailed quiz and then suggesting ways to take action steps based on their answers. We will be on the site on our own special Group Page where the team members can register to support each other, and to have some friendly competition amongst ourselves at the same time on being green.
This is a big deal for my team as Practically Green is an unbelievable tool to track your green behavior so you can see where to improve and what else you can do to be greener. I will post more about it later once we form the group page but I just wanted to tell you to check it out if you get a chance. It’s a fabulous site that is growing faster than even they’ve imagined. That means there are so many people who are interested in being eco-friendly and learning how to be greener. We are so lucky to be invited to be on its Group Page! We are the first Etsy team and I believe, a non-corporate entity to be on it. We are grateful for this priceless opportunity. Check out Practically Green’s Blog and read their awesome articles.
Back to my radio appearance…. is that a correct term? I mean, I didn’t really “appear” on the show….
If you have some time today, listen to The Green Divas Radio Show’s podcast of yesterday’s segment. It’s a hoot. I come on around 35:00 or so, after Ed, but listen to the hour show from the beginning so you can get the flavor of the fun threesome. Green Divas Meg and Lisa – sisters tag team – and the Green Dude Paul – the token testosterone – were so nice to let me yak, yak, yak, non-stop. I was actually able to listen on my AM radio yesterday from my home but if you can’t, you can stream it live from your computer from WMTRAM.com. I hope y’all tune in to The Green Divas Radio Show every week on Saturday at 10 AM. They have wonderful guests each week and we can learn a lot about what’s going on in the “green” communities around the country. And you’ll get to hear celebrities like
me, Ed Begely Jr. time to time. Who knows who else will appear on the show in the future!
Thank You Green Divas Meg & Lisa, and Green Dude Paul! It was a blast! I hope we can do it again!
Again, here is yesterday’s podcast on The Green Divas Radio Show.
