MarthaandTrudie

For tomorrow’s Martha Stewart Show, the famous host shows off her best “downward dog” with Trudi Styler. From USAToday,

The episode was shot this week in front of an audience of 51 yogis, who practiced yoga for the entire hour-long taping. Highlights include an empowering “warrior” workout with Styler, and an overview of three different styles of yoga: ashtanga, iyengar, and vinyasa.

Styler, who admits to practicing yoga for 30-45 minutes a day, has just released the first of five fitness DVDs with a focus on green living. Here’s a bit from the release,

“Bonus material will include a tour of Il Palagio’s kitchen and gardens. More than 70% of the food at Il Palagio comes from the estate itself, including products that are sold to the public such as honey, olive oil, fruit, vegetables, Tuscan salami and, coming in 2010, wine. Additionally, there is a behind-the-scenes look at how Il Palagio uses the surrounding land to create a self-sustaining and eco-friendly house that runs on bio fuels. And lastly, a lifestyle piece about organic wine production, the conversion of estate lands into biodynamic vineyards, and the story behind Sister Moon, the couple’s organic wine label.”

A percentage of profits will go towards the Unicef Ecuador Water Project, which provides rainwater collection and filtration tanks to communities in the Ecuador rainforest.

    i am a little confused. despite its nice name and nice image, “biofuel” has some serious drawbacks and it hardly can be labeled “environmental friendly”. please can somebody explain me why biodiesels are supposedly a blessing to the environment ?
