Deborah Lindquist eco-fashions help make green chic.


Cutting-Edge Couture 

Deborah Lindquist has made some of Hollywood’s hottest stars green with envy. Her eco-friendly designs are made with materials ranging from bamboo to hemp and are worn by the likes of Christina Applegate, Sarah Jessica Parker and Cameron Diaz. Lindquist combines a vintage look with bold and neutral colors for a modern edge.

Give Me Your Huddled Masses Yearning  for Wind Power 

This year, the Statue of Liberty and Ellis Island became two of the first American landmarks to be powered solely by alternative energy. Wind turbines in West Virginia and Pennsylvania feed power into the national electrical grid to light up Ms. Liberty’s torch and supply air conditioning to both museums. Now that’s a cool idea.

Scout’s Honor

“Always be prepared to respect the Earth” could be the motto of SpiralScouts International, a co-ed eco-program for girls and boys. Kids learn woodland lore, camping and outdoor skills, and hear stories from Earth-centered mythology. They can be FireFlies (preschoolers to age 8), SpiralScouts (ages 8 to 13) or PathFinders (13 and older). SpiralScout Circles are raising environmental consciousness in 20 U.S. states and several Canadian provinces.
