snipshot_e4ab8sais1d.jpgOne of our most ridiculed environmental baddies is turning a lighter shade of green. The man with a carbon footprint the size of Manhattan, Donald Trump, is adopting eco-friendly building initiatives for his latest project, “Trump on the Ocean”. According the sources, the future oceanfront restaurant and banquet hall on Long Island’s Jones Beach will include some of the most recent advances in environmental technology. From the article,

“The state and Trump reached agreement to participate in the “Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design” program.  ‘Jones Beach is a rare jewel, and we will do everything we can to keep it beautiful and eco-friendly in addition to building the best facility of its kind anywhere in the world,’ Trump said in a statement.

The building will also comply with the state’s “Green Building Initiative” for energy efficiency and will be compatible with its surroundings. Under the agreement, the state parks department has the right to approve designs.”

We don’t for a moment disregard the fact that Trump holds an incredible amount of sway in the developer realm. We applaud this step because if a Trump building contains these green aspects, we’re hopeful competitors will embrace the same — if not greater — degree of sustainability. Hit the jump for more.

Why Vegetarianism Makes No Sense From A Moral Perspective

I don’t consider my years as a vegetarian as a stepping-stone or prerequisite to veganism


I hope I win the ‘Pig Farmers of Tomorrow’ contest I entered (I’m vegan)

I think I’ll likely have the most interest in pigs of anyone applying, anyway.


Hopefully Jon & Tracey Stewart use their new farm for vegan education

They’ve promised classes on caring for animals and sustainable agriculture, so vegan 101 would be a great place to start.
