Green driving or riding need not be an expensive affair. As in all things sustainable and eco-friendly, the prevailing misconception lies in the cost: it being unaffordable to most. "Eco" for ecofriendly could and also should mean "Eco" for economical.

2 year ago, on a rainy morning, coffee cup on hand, I wrote these words, as I sat watching footage of a funeral.
I was once asked, “what one article did you write that can sum up the character of Pinoy Green Academy?” This is what I chose, precisely what I wrote then, and I again share:
The Filipino Worth Greening For
by Dennis Morada
It's says on the cover: THE SPECIAL ISSUE.
By chance or by design, a movie, carrying a water conservation theme, is locally showing, close to the celebration of World Water Day. It's summer, THE dry season, and the message is all the more resounding...if only we closely listen.
Philippine's new eco-friendly lifestyle magazine is here!
"Love the Earth, Love yourself" --- the main message is in the slogan. We are happy to welcome this new publication. Not since Gen G's launch was I this excited about a new Philippine magazine.
As Facebook has become the most popular online destination for most of us, there's no better venue to teach earth-friendly habits.
I just read in today's Philstar Science and Technology section that a one of the Philippines' leading companies is launching the Alter Space Game as a game app in Facebook. This means "teach" here gets a less academic approach as learning is done through fun games. I'm excited to try the games out. It says in the article that the games tackle lessons in reducing one's carbon footprint, using cleaner and renewable source of energy, and similar eco-friendly topics.
Watch out for its launch. Its fan page is www.facebook.com/AlterSpaceGame. If you want to read more about it, do visit the Philippine Star website: New Filipino Made Facebook Game ...
Emails used to be the medium for spreading viral messages, in whatever form--- texts, photos, slides, or videos. Facebook seem to have taken its role. A friend, Ponsy, passed this to me for sharing: it's a majestic story which I will not describe or summarize to give you no choice but to watch it in its entirety.
"GO PLANET!," and out comes the hero, Captain Planet, to save the day...and yes, the planet.
I was 20 already then when the cartoon series came out; and thus, did not appreciate it as much as I did my childhood superheroes (Superman, Spiderman, Batman, etc.). 20 years after, though, in our age, when harm to the earth is more apparent in climate change, I have become more appreciative of what power the series has.
