If you check out wiserearth.org you’ll find thousands upon thousands of non-profits working for change in the areas of the environment, indigenous rights, and social justice. Paul Hawken writes that in the beginning of the database creation, there were about one million, actually. WISER (which stands for World Index of Social and Environmental Responsibility) lists over 600 oganizations that include as one of their “areas of focus” the Performing Arts; but, not one of them (as far as I could find) focuses on creating a more sustainable way of creating and producing theater.

The time has most certainly come for such an organization, and one person is working on it. He is still, in fact, searching for a talented person to help him develop a Web site for his initiative, so if you are out there, itching to be a part of the environmental movement within theater, please get in touch.

what’s in a color?

"It should be about different kinds of symbols than the color green—wind farms, solar, renewable-energy laboratories, those things that are symbolic of the new energy economy. People think that we overuse the concept of green, and it could become trite in its expression.”
“This idea about green in a lot of people’s minds still conjures up this notion of a fringe or something that’s out-there. It doesn’t inspire this notion of a new America. It just seems more substantive than a color.” - Colorado governor Bill Ritter, Jr. in The New Yorker
