    Oprah Winfrey has gone meat-free, and she’s using the “V word.” No, we’re not talking “vajayjay” … we’re talking “vegan.” Consider this news tops on our list of Favorite Things.

  2. Meat lovers need not apply

    Single green seeking same for two awkward minutes of eco-chat over generous doses of liquid courage. Please, no coal gasification. If conversation is sustainable, we’ll see how things unfold organically from there.

  3. Mother Earth knows best

    From organic mattresses in cribs to recycling classes for toddlers, going green is child’s play at eco-daycare centers across the country. Early outreach may help tots sustain green habits through adulthood … and if they’re lucky, mandatory naptime, too.

  5. Give peas a chance

    Manhattan’s meatless took to the streets for a Veggie Pride Parade (through “Green”wich Village, natch).
