Green Hero of the Week:

Posted By on Thu, May 28, 2009 at 2:21 PM

f2cc/1243534895-oneearth.jpgAs we did with last week's hero, Green Map, we're spotlighting an interactive, act-local website to help you be better., which launched earlier this month, is a wiki-powered source for information on food, recycling, energy, locations, communities, and so on, all making it that much easier for you to be that much better, and to help other people do likewise. And — on the off chance any of our readers would like to feel an upswelling of pride in their alma mater — it was started by a former Pratt kid (probably while waiting in a local diner for grandmothers in big hats and grandsons in suits to finish their Sunday brunches so that he could sit down and get his hangover eggs).
