Hello World! Welcome To So Fresh And So Green.com

Here in my first post on So Fresh and So Green I would like to shed some light on why I got into this in the first place and what you can expect here. What I’d like to do here is make this site a crossroads for ideas and information.

So I’ve divided things into 2 major areas: The Fresh and The Green. The Fresh is city life, urban art, young people making moves, hip hop, hopefully some enlightening information and ideas, and lots of music. The Green deals with environmental issues on different levels from public policy to bodega food nutrition to finding out what a “green job” is and what it means for you.

We deal with Black environmentalism here because it does exist, as the Great Van Jones and many others have shown us. Together we can explore what environmentalism of many stripes, especially Black environmentalism, has to teach us all. When we learn about the environment we can do better and if we do better we will all benefit.

To those closest to me I am more so known as a music junkie, a longwinded writer, an unrelenting grammar/spelling cop, a fashion, art and design enthusiast-but not an environmentalist. So this is why I got into this business in the first place:

Because you can be Black or Brown and “Green” too…

Because I can’t afford a hybrid…
Because common sense says being green can’t be all about spending my greenbacks…
Because my dad thinks the earth will fix itself…
Because he may be right…
Because I recycle my bank receipts…
Because I like nature…
Because my neighbor encouraged me to sneak garbage into the recycling on recycling pick up days…
Because I know I don’t have to be White to care about the planet…
Because I understand the relationship between health and the environment…
Because people have been “green” for years and back then it was common sense or a way of life…
Because I heard Tropical Fantasy makes you sterile and quarter waters aren’t much better…
Because I cannot live on Hip Hop alone…
Because vinegar is as good as Windex…
Because I care…
Because we’ve been had…
