At the IN, we don’t ever follow the rules. The pro-environment issues are supposed to be published in April near the Earth Day celebrations. The hell with that! Our Green Matters! issue, for the second year in a row, is in honor of St. Patrick’s Day. After all, we’ve been recycling beer for years.
Our 2012 Annual Green Matters! issue looks at how we can move our community beyond being just green to being a leader in sustainability. IN publisher Rick Outzen interviews branding expert Mona Amodeo, whose doctoral dissertation led to a passion for sustainability, and gets her thoughts on how Pensacola can become a sustainable community.
We also looked at green initiatives that are operating under the radar. Each plays a different role in our movement toward “green” living. Jennie McKeon looked into the Hollice T. Williams Community Garden, the city’s first community garden. Jeremy Morrison visited with Thomas Van Horn and his East Hill Honey Co. that is supplying honey throughout the community.
And, yes, we’ve covered the St. Paddy’s Day activities, too.
So read on and go green!
