Material World: Green is the New Black


This Saturday I’m moderating a panel as part of a symposium organized by interior design students at the Corcoran College of Art + Design. The subject is the green movement’s impact on design. There will be presentations from (the insanely fabulous) Madeline Weinrib, designer Dre Rawlings and others. There will be lots of cute design people there, including students Caryn, Brittany and Stephanie, who are so inspiring to me. creative, lovely things just fall from their fingertips. Just look at the green “outfits” they designed and photographed to make these posters!

It’s free. There’s wine and stuff after. You should come. Just RSVP to


And then! On Sunday I’m going to head to the Mall for the Climate Rally to see Passion Pit (saw them at the Black Cat last year…so good), John Legend, Sting, and Willie Colon (who is apparently amazing) and a bunch of others. Also for free. I recommend you sign the petition they’re working on if you decide to go. The concert element is awesome, but the day is meant to not only draw crowds but to inspire change where it matters – on the Hill – and protect the beautiful places we love.
