Volunteering, Pioneer Organics, GreenUp and more

- A Fresh Squeeze is promoting a voluteer initiative going on in the Seattle area.

- Pioneer Organics will be starting on May 9th. Peter Latvis, the marketing manager, mentioned that" It will give customers an option to choose "Local Only" produce (grown or produced within a 500 mile radius.) In the future we hope to be able to offer blogging as a component of the spud! website." This is great news. Congratulations!

- The city of Seattle has a great program to promote wind power. The program, Green Up, is trying to get both residents and businesses to switch to electricity made from wind power. This sounds like a great idea that can have a great positive effect on the community. In addition to the wind power received, customers will receive gifts from one of Seattle's leading fair trade chocolate producers, Theo Chocolate. The chocolate is worth the switch alone!

If you haven't signed up yet, we still need you to help out Seattle Tilth. Click on the following link and sign up for A Fresh Squeeze! When you do, A Fresh Squeeze will let me know and I will donate $0.25 to Seattle Tilth for each sign up. You will not only get a great resource in A Fresh Squeeze's emails, you will also help fund one of the Seattle area's great environmental educational resources in Seattle Tilth.

While perusing through the sites in the margin, I ended up reading a ton of information from Green Tech Media. There are stories on funding alt energy companies, residential uses of alt energy and a lot more.

As always, check out the sites in the margin ====> to find out more about what is going on environmentally.
