Did You Meet Irene This week?

It’s been a pretty wierd week here on the East Coast. We experienced the shake, rattle and roll of an earthquake here at GD Headquarters earlier in the week, and then it was like an episode of Rescue Me here with our local Fire Fighters showed up TWICE to help us pump out the basement with 3 feet of water rising fast after Irene had her way with us.

Eco-Spirituality, Bamboo Clothing and Helping the Homeless

Laugh, learn and listen to the Green Divas Radio Show & Podcast!

A profound show to say farewell to HomeGrownRadioNJ as we move on to our new studio digs – WMTR 1250AM in June. There was a wonderful energy in the studio, which was partly because of our in-studio guest, author Caroline Fairless, who brought a light-hearted, but powerful message about connecting the green/sustainability movement to the awesome spirit of nature. We talked about Caroline’s book, The Space Between Church and Not-Church: A Sacramental Vision for the Healing of Our Earth.

Her decision to use a combination of organic, natural, and synthetic ingredients has created some controversy regarding the “purity” of her product line. But is the criticism deserved, or has Close successfully navigated the tricky intersection of purity and performance?
