Heroines for the Planet: Green Drinks NYC Founder Margaret Lydecker

Before Margaret Lydecker founded Green Drinks NYC in 2002, there wasn’t a place for Manhattan’s like-minded, eco-conscious professionals to get their networking on.

With the Green Festival in the city this weekend, there's a lot going on just at the moment. Continuing the idea that the Polar Bear is now the symbol of global warming, this ice sculpture was created in the centre of Newcastle upon Tyne yesterday as part of UN World Environment Day.

I was at Newcastle Green Festival the weekend before last with the family. Of course when I got to the front of the queue, they only had Coke/Sprite/Fanta or bottled water, so I ended up, red faced, buying bottled water at an environmental festival.
