Green. Simple. Funny.

Environmentalism is serious, complicated business, so a bit of humor on the subject is quite refreshing, especially when the jokes call attention to simple green solutions. I had a good laugh over the “Tongue-in-Cheek Guide for Green Gadget Buyers” in Fast Company this month, especially the recession-friendly “efficiency toggle” that “can achieve a 100% reduction in power usage.” Building daylight monitors and occupancy sensors are cool, but lets not forget that the simple act of turning off the lights (like your parents told you to) doesn’t require a complicated calculation to determine the payback period.
