Today is #EcoMonday
on Twitter -- at the start of every work week people share green Twitterers that their friends should follow. By including the hashtag "#EcoMonday", it allows others to easily find eco-minded people to follow. It was started when my friends at Max Gladwell proposed it a week before MNN's Great Green Twitter Follow Parade
. The Parade provided the perfect launching ground and a Twitter meme
was born. The whole story can be found over at Max Gladwell
Typically #EcoMonday lives on exclusively on Twitter, but I'll draw it into a blog post and share some of my green pals that made Mashable's list. You should follow these fine folks.
is Tim Hurst, a writer and editor at Green Options and Ecopolitology. We haven't actually met, but I'm a big fan of his work.
is MNN's own Siel Ju
. I've been reading her blog for years and have always appreciated her coverage of the green happenings of L.A. and the world at large.
Scott Edward Anderson is another green guy who I've been reading for years.
is Jeremy Jacquot, a writer for Treehugger, DeSmogBlog and Discover Magazine. He's smart and savvy and writes a mean blog post.
is Olivia Zaleski, host of CNN and Fortune's Business of Green
TV series. She lives in NYC and is the young, smart, hot, green Martha Stewart. I have a not-very-secret crush on Olivia. Shhh, don't tell her..... :D
is Summer Rayne Oakes, a model, environmental activist, entrepreneur and entomologist (bug scientist). She's smart, sexy, green, and she likes bugs!
is Danielle Brigida, the social media ninja at the National Wildlife Federation. I've been friends with Danielle for a long time now and I've always been impressed with her. She's mega awesome (and her dad is a rock star).
is David, another green blogger who I've been reading for a long time. He's a great writer and has a must-subscribe Twitterfeed.
