Bite Me You Green Bean

Today on Giving Tuesday, we need you.
Dear reader, we're asking you to help us keep local news available for all today on Giving Tuesday. Your financial support keeps our stories free to read, instead of hidden behind paywalls AND will be matched dollar-for-dollar! Let your support for reliable local reporting be amplified by this special matching opportunity. Thank you for investing in your neighborhood.

Coming next Tuesday, Los Angeles is gonna get bitten by the green bug -- not that it already is eco-minded, except for dumb politicians. Ideal Bite, a daily weekday e-mail that provides one simple green environmentally hip tip to around 170,000 people, has been doing a national version for a couple years. Now, concentrating on Metro areas, Los Angeles gets its own local version (you can sign up here).

And what's there to expect? Organic chocolates, eco-moving companies, green building supplies, hemp dog collars & all-natural pet food, and profiles of local eco-heroes. Greenopia has been doing these kind of listings in a published book, so it looks like for the green resources sector, competition has arrived. And if it's green, that's a good color to get dirty in. So bite me.
