Iron Chef Subliminal Message

Looks pretty legit to me. Mickey D’s has got to be some of the most unhealthy food out there for you. Not only is their food bad for your body, but it seems their advertising tactics are just as creepy… You decide.

2008 Green Prom: The Princess Project

Can’t wait for prom? Did you know you can be uber-psyched for your special day and still make a green impact? Yep, meet The Princess Project. This video segment from Eco News gives you the scoop on the latest prom trend for 2008 – recycled dresses! Think about it, most prom dresses are worn one time, for one night, then it gets relegated to the back of the closet never to be seen again. Sure you might know a fashion forward friend who can actually redesign an old prom dress into a stylish new creation, but most of us just sigh and leave our prom dress alone with those other “never to be worn again, but I really can’t get rid of this” items like the cashmere sweater with the moth hole, that cute tank top that will never fit again and of course, skinny jeans. Why not put that prom dress to good use and donate it?

The Princess Project promotes self-confidence and individual beauty by providing free prom dresses and accessories (love that – you always need to accessorize!) to high school girls who cannot otherwise afford them. It’s a great project and you’ll feel good participating.

BTW: Eco News is your daily dose for everything Green in the San Francisco area! From the most current information on renewable energy and organic produce to environmentally friendly products and people making a difference!
