Jeffrey defines an eco-snob as someone who looks down their nose at anyone else living a less green life. He writes:
Each journey begins with a single step; every book begins with a single page, blah blah blah. The moral of the story is that every step DOES matter. If you’re rockin’ solar panels and geothermal heating on your home or if you’re sourcing organic ingredients from fair trade certified farms, then that is awesome. We love it. Keep it up.
If you’re taking reusable bags to the store when you can remember them or if your company switched to recycled paper in the printer, that’s awesome too. Keep that up as well.
This is obviously a site that's friendly to both the newly green as well as light greens, those people who know it's important to recycle and use reusable bags but who might not be out doing banner drops on power plant smoke stacks. They know we need to "save the environment," but they might be 100 percent sure how they can contribute to the fight.
Eco-Snobbery Sucks covers a wide range of categories like energy, food, health, nature, science and politics with great stories like Finally! An affordable LED bulb
, Organic recipes for National Margarita Day
, GoodGuide adds pet food, tea, candy, & coffee ratings
, and Is caramel coloring used in cola causing cancer?
