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.

There’s a great interview with Yves Behar over at Inhabitat. Behar designed the Leaf and Ardea lights for Herman Miller. He is the key speaker at the Greener Gadgets Conference this week where he’ll discuss his work including the super cool little tablet computer he designed for the One Laptop Per Child project.

Treehugger is a great site for all things green. And they’ve got a particularly strong section on greening your home office. Probably the best part is their top 10 Green Work from Home Tips. The guides sit on their sister site Planet Green. You’ll find so much here – from a guide to green office chairs and ways to find green jobs to green tech tips and ideas on how to go paperless. It’s very inspiring – and very doable.
