El Hierro, one of the Canary Islands off the coast of Spain, is going green! El Hierro will soon become the very first island to be run entirely on renewable energy.

According to the story on the Huffington Post, the island will be powered mostly by a wind farm and a hydroelectric plant. Due to elimination of oil transport, the switch to renewable energy will offset over 18,000 tons of CO2! Now that’s good news, fellow Earth residents!

ABB, the company that will be bringing green power to El Hierro, says that they will be “providing a power and automation solution that will electrify and control the hydroelectric pumped storage plant, and integrate into the island grid the energy generated by wind and hydropower turbines.” The estimated cost for the project is $87 million and it will provide energy to all 11,000 inhabitants of the island!

El Hierro is a beautiful place to visit and a popular tourist spot, if you’re looking for a remote island getaway! And soon, a very eco-friendly destination!

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.
