Expanding Our Impact

July 27, 2015

If you’re reading this, there’s a good chance that you consider yourself a member of Minnesota’s green community or that you might think of yourself that way one day in the future.  As environmentally conscious Minnesotans, we strive to minimize our individual impact on the earth and other living creatures. Reducing, reusing, and recycling have become second nature for many of us; we consider the impact of chemicals, development, and land management in our daily lives.  We make sustainable choices when we buy groceries, decide how to commute to work, or plan a party.

The Green Job Hunt Online

July 13, 2015

As anyone who has ever looked for a job knows, trying to find both an opening and an employer that are right for you can be difficult.  The old standbys of volunteering, interning, and networking in order to build connections and get an “in” at the right company or organization are still highly effective ways of finding work.  Finding and applying to job ads online is also an important part of the modern job search.  While the internet has made job advertisements in all fields and all locations accessible to us, it can also be somewhat overwhelming and intimidating to know where to start.  So where should you look for postings if you’re interested in a green or environmental field?

Transportation Options

June 29, 2015

As I was walking home recently, I had an interesting conversation with an employee from a nearby mechanics shop.  I was waiting at the corner for the light to change, and there happened to be a chain mechanics shop on that same corner.  One of their employees was standing on the corner waving an oil change sign in order to drum up business.  As we were standing next to each other, we watched several bicyclists and pedestrians cross the street in the opposite direction.  He turned to me and noted with surprise and a little confusion how many people were biking and walking lately.  The large number of bikers and walkers wasn’t a surprise to me, but I can see how it might be for someone who spends their days dealing with car drivers.
