Eco star Ed Begley Jr. has been lending his thoughts, time, and energy to saving the planet for many years. The problem is, prior to green being cool not many people were listening.
Ed has their ears now — especially with a hit television show, a line of eco-friendly cleaning products, and public support for massive green initiatives around the country. With this in mind, he’s launched a new online site with partners Tim Matteson and Joseph Gutwirth called Fixing The Planet. From the release,
“Designed as a forum-based community, the site offers topic specific forums centered on environmental issues. Rather than â€œpushedâ€ content which you find in Blogs or News related â€œgreenâ€ sites, FixingThePlanet.com will be the one-stop resource for all things green. ‘I have been doing this stuff since 1970 â€“ driving an electric car, composting, recycling â€“ and Iâ€™ve always tried to set a good example for others who are interested in sustainable living. Itâ€™s not only been good for the environment, but itâ€™s been good for my pocket book. With FixingThePlanet.com, my hope is that people have one place to go where they can find answers to their questions’ says Mr. Begley.”
How many people will be talking the latest in green? The site has set some lofty goals for membership with 500,000 participants expected by the end of this year — and 2 million for 2008. Can they do it? Head on over and take a look. Inspired design it is not â€” but the content more than makes up for it.
