Bike Fashion show a hot event, but needs to get out of hipsterville.

October 8th, 2010 · 8 Comments

I’m nursing a Stanley Park Ale in the pulsating hip basement of the Calabash Bistro, with a crowd of cyclist types way cooler than me. It’s Momentum Magazine’s BikeStyle Tour Fashion Show and it’s making me feel like a stowaway in bike geek heaven. Momentum is ‘North America’s Bike Lifestyle Magazine’. And they created a […]

September 29th, 2010 · 4 Comments

They have branded themselves as the ‘Strathcona Green Zone’ and are in their third year of focusing, sharing and collaborating with local business members on sustainability.

August 3rd, 2010 · 3 Comments

Have you got a sustainability idea or initiative to get off the ground? You might want to take yourself a lot less seriously. Less than two months ago, the Crazy Sustainable Commute was just a fun office idea in the head of Steve Unger, a Senior Director at SAP. The concept is now gaining momentum […]

Veggie Fueled World-Record-Breaking Van is one green ride.

May 5th, 2010 · No Comments

The irony was obvious. I was stopping for petrol at the Esso station in Hope BC as I glanced over to the parking area and saw a young couple self-fueling their Toyota Delica with a hose leading from a trailer fill of waste vegetable oil. I soon learned Tyson Jerry and Cloe Whittaker were on […]

ScrapArtsMusic – Tops off my Earth Day with a Bang. (And a nice marketing spin)

April 22nd, 2010 · 5 Comments

How the whole event came together reads like an ad for Social Media. I saw a Twitter Tweet from Granville Online, (a Vancouver green living website), promoting a video profile of a local ‘band’ who was making music with instruments constructed from recycled Vantown scrap. It looked like such a fascinating prospect for an Earth […]

Social Media Conference NW – navigating the new sustainable media.

March 25th, 2010 · 3 Comments

Regardless, I’m here at the Social Media Conference Northwest, to navigate the constantly-evolving thicket of […]
