The question I posed above stems somewhat from an incredible George Carlin video, completely worthy of the 7:00+ minutes it takes to view it.
In it, he makes the point that the Earth has been here long before man, and will be here long after man. His bit goes on to say that our fight to “save the planet” is actually a fight to “save ourselves”.

Best Organic Beer
- Greenopia has the Granddaddy of all organic beer reviews. They taste-tested 15 organic brews and rated many of the Bison Brewing varieties at the top of the list.
- The LeafyGreen.info crew is just now sobering up from their “beer weekend” where they sampled a plethora of tasty eco-friendly beer — solely for the purpose of reviews, of course. Leafy Green casts their hands-down vote for DogFish brews as their favorite sustainable brew. Hit up their site to get their thoughts on many others.
- Since beer is one of my personal favorite drinks of choice, The Fun Times Guide to Living Green has lots of great organic and eco-friendly beer tips.
What’s your favorite sustainable brew to partake of and why? Is it organic? Brewed with alternative energy? Packaged in recycled glass? Do tell, do tell…
I think every little step toward living green is an awesome one… but eco-snobbery sucks! My goal is to help newbies learn the most important steps toward living green — individually and collectively. Personally, I strive to have as little impact as possible on Planet Earth while I'm here.
