Good to be green

As its name suggests, Treehugger is a site which keeps us in touch with our architectural inner green.

Actually it covers everything from green fashion to business and politics, as well as design and architecture.

Last week it featured among a lot of other things a sideboard which deployed an ecological paint called ELI ('eco light inside' -- ecological powder which is modified into a gelcoat that covers the furniture). No I didn't make that up. There's also a motor-glider powered 'by a hybrid propulsion system based on a hydrogen fuel cell and lithium-ion batteries'.

Round the London offices people are saying you're dead in the water without some basic green knowledge, or at the very least, without being able to spout basic green jargon. In the cause of a more colourful image you could do worse than sign up for the newsletter from this very agreeable site.
