Earlier this week, Newsweek magazine published a list of the top 10 most surprisingly green people and things. While we’re never too surprised to hear that somebody’s crossed over to the green side, we were certainly intrigued by a few of their findings.

On the list are a mishmash of personalities and oddities, including George W. Bush, the city of Reno, Nevada, and The Simpsons.

Holding firm at spot Number 5, Newsweek featured one of our favorite green gals Leilani Munter. Munter is one of the top 10 female sports-car drivers in the world and works to promote clean-energy and environmental legislation. She’s also a longtime vegetarian and outspoken about the power of a plant-based diet.

One of the biggest surprises on the list was The U.S. military. Let’s just say we’ve never really thought of the military as the most environmentally-focused organization. According to Newsweek, however, they’ve implemented several impressive eco initiatives, including utilizing alternative energy sources such as solar and wind power. They’ve even announced plans to rely on renewable resources for 50 percent of their power by 2020. Not bad, military!

Jump on over to Newsweek.com to check out the entire list, and tell us what you think. Any big surprises?

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
