Some interesting tidbits
A vegan strip club opened in Portland, Ore according to Vagabonish and Treehugger. With the motto of “meat on the pole, not on the plate” the strip club will serve vegan dishes and ban fur or leather outfits for their strippers.
The Perrin Post wrote about Enterprise’s new “We Car” car sharing program. They are beginning the rental/sharing program in St. Louis using Toyota Prius Hybrid cars.
Get Rich Slowly writes about Minimalist Meals that you can make in less than 10 minutes. There are a few good ideas in here for recipes that could be made in a hostel’s kitchen.
Vagabondish as a great post on “Doomsday Tourism” i.e. traveling to sites now that may be more or less extinct in a few years, like the Galapogos Islands or the Great Barrier Reef. I’ve been fortunate enough to visit Galapagos and have my own two cents on sustainable and responsible travel there, but I’ll save that for another post.
Treehugger radio has an interview (parts 1 and part 2) with Yvon Chouinard, the founder of Patagonia. If you’re not buying used; one of the next best things (in terms of environmentally friendliness) is to buy from Patagonia.
