This week’s green theme on Lifework wouldn’t be complete without a nod to our favorite environmental lifestyle expert, Danny Seo. His new book Upcycling has inspired our creative sides, his eco-friendly Danny Seo home collection (found nationally at stores like TJ Maxx, Marshalls, and HomeGoods) is currently inspiring our every day, and now his Playlist is inspiring a much-needed dance break between work projects. Take a listen.
What do you listen to while you work? It depends. If I’m working away on something that’s totally work-related (we’re talking lengthy emails, reviewing contracts, doing selects from photo shoots) it needs to be dead quiet. But if I’m writing my syndicated column Do Just One Thing or the manuscript for a new book, I have to have music on. It drains out any distractions and lets me focus on the creative writing at hand.

You’ve probably heard of Danny Seo. He’s the man who at 12 founded the organization Earth 2000 and by 18 he had turned the organization into “the country’s largest teenage activist charity, spearheading worldwide campaigns on behalf of the environment.” Today he works to green all sorts of large organizations including JC Penney with their Simply Green campaign and Method Products and their line of earth-friendly cleaning products. He also has his own line of beauty products and books.
What does his bulletin board look like? Clearly Danny has a lot on his plate and a single board couldn’t come close to containing all that he’s working on – so he installed three large burlap-covered boards in the corner of the room and created an inspiration wall. He used homasote, an environmentally-friendly material that is made from recyclable materials.
