The Electric Option

by Stephen Morris                         1000498 714

At SolarFest, the summer music and energy extravaganza held in Middletown Springs each July, the Green Living Journal was right next to the booth for Freedom 4 Bikes of Bellows Falls, Vermont. The bikes were quite a show-stopper, as the shop proprietors would end their sales pitch by hopping on a bike and silently gliding into the distance, whetting the appetite for a test ride.

The (no fear) Guide to Energy Efficiency

by Dana Rubin                         1000497 669

The (no fear) Guide to Energy Efficiency was created by Dana B. Rubin for her senior independent project in Environmental Studies at Mount Holyoke College. Dana began her project working with the Cambridge Energy Alliance in Cambridge, Massachusetts in the summer of 2011. Working with the city’s school district and the CEA, Dana spread her lessons through the city’s public schools and youth centers to be used as supplemental lessons for classroom learning. Beginning in the fall of 2011, Dana expanded her work to Western Massachusetts where she ran a 12- week after school program at Peck Middle School in Holyoke, Massachusetts to encourage small behavior and lifestyle changes at school and within the home. Dana has gone on to run similar programs at the Amherst Common School in Amherst, Massachusetts.

This collection of art projects and investigations is recommended for Late Elementary & Middle School Education.

by Peter Cossey                         1000493 833

Or, as their website states, "By integrating the unique properties of monorail and recumbent cycle technologies, Shweeb delivers a personal, efficient, and cost-effective transport solution with applications for urban commuting, recreational and fitness markets.
