Filling the much-needed role of a male Martha Stewart for the green set, you could say that environmental lifestyle expert Danny Seo’s planet-friendly pursuits are a natural extension of his DNA. Born 33 years ago on Earth Day, the self-proclaimed  eco-stylist has carved out a mini empire by authoring various green lifestyle books, hosting and creating several television shows (one of which he is currently shopping around to networks), partnering with 3 major corporations to offer eco-friendly branded products and dispensing even more juicy green tips via his website and blog.

This shrewd business acumen must be coursing through his blood because at the age of just 12, he spent $23 to create a grassroots activist charity called Earth 2000 which just 6 years later became America’s largest eco-themed organization boasting 25,000 members. Everything he has touched since then has turned green, likely due to his goal of always coupling education with fun rather than presenting “green living like medicine”.

These days, Seo is content spreading green lifestyle awareness in a way that is approachable and also affordable, insisting that “going green doesn’t have to cost a lot.” While he has definitely achieved fame and fortune thanks to his career path, it’s pretty encouraging to note that if someone with no formal education beyond high school can do it, anything is possible if you allow your determination to guide you. Catch him on QVC this upcoming Thursday, April 22nd (Earth Day) for a special green themed event.
