it's good to be the 'burbs!

green living in the 'burbs? yeah, right? all that driving, big houses to heat, yadda yadda yadda.

but wait, check out levittown, nassau county -- they are going green!
from my personal bible, the grist list, i read that levittown (our nation's first suburb) is getting green.

tom suozzi, the county executive, rolled out their mission to make it easy for the citizens of Levittown to save money on energy costs by providing special discounts on energy efficient products and services, and their goal to make America’s first suburb into America's most energy efficient suburb with the cooperation of Levittown residents, Nassau County, Citizens Campaign for the Environment and concerned corporate partners.

i hope this initiative has some real meat to it, not just the usual greenwashing, pr junk. stay tuned...

meanwhile, do your part when you shop around town, grab a tote & send an effective message, like becky redman's angry f*** recycle bag.
