Why My Purse is Green

Because I believe…

  • the fastest, most effective way to stop polluters is by pressuring them in the marketplace
  • women can be the world’s most powerful economic and environmental force if we intentionally shift our spending to the best green products and services
  • women have the power right now to solve many of our most serious environmental problems by using our green purses to make a difference
  • women must act – intentionally, collectively, and with the full force of our purse power behind us – if we hope to leave our children and grandchildren a better world.

    Hanging out with Christie Brinkley is Fun!

    In honor of its upcoming 70th anniversary, Glamour magazine is featuring 70 women whom they consider to be environmental leaders. I was honored to be included in the group, along with Laurie David, who produced "An Inconvenient Truth" for Al Gore, renowned organic chef Alice Waters, film star Alicia Silverstone, and top model Christie Brinkley.

    048_6 We all met for portrait photos at Tavern on the Green in Manhattan, then massed in Central Park for a photo shoot that gathered a small crowd of tourists and even a few papparazzi. Christie Brinkley in particular couldn't have been nicer. She knows a lot about nuclear power and wanted to talk energy policy. Anna Aurillio of Environment America and I (pictured, with Christie) happily obliged.

    Look for the story in the April 2009 issue of Glamour.

    The issue just hit the stands... Thanks for mentioning nuclear power... Our organization Rock The Reactors has been bringing together the entire fashion industry in support of shutting down Indian Point. Please support our efforts.

    When I wrote this post, the story hadn't been written yet. I did a follow up when the magazine came out and did provide the link. Thanks.
