Green News Update  is an international web site and blog that started in 2004 as an email newsletter  to hundreds of institutions and early adopters of green practices. Today, we reach readers and visitors in 114 countries.

We love nature and urban life, cities (big and small), untouched places, travel and the pleasures of quiet contemplation.  We promote the idea that it makes sense to leave as small a footprint as possible. Want less, consume less, use less, share more, leave more for the next generation.

Our publisher has a 20-year+ interest in conservation, green design and sustainability issues that affect people and places all over the world. She is a civic activist — Washington D.C. and suburban Maryland are her beat. She’s a member of the Committee of 100 on the Federal City, a 90-year-old civic planning organization  in Washington DC, that addresses transit, design, open space, and historic preservation in the nation’s capital.

We welcome your feedback and ideas. Please feel free to send a message with your thoughts and help us grow into a premier source of news and information!

Bobbie Faul-Zeitler, Publisher & Editor
