Green-Collar Economy

by Morgan Clendaniel

October 9, 2008
Van Jones, the San Francisco activist behind Green for All, who is working to get green-collar jobs placed in low-income neighborhoods (two birds, one stone), has been getting a lot of attention lately. We profiled him in GOOD 010 (which you can read here) and he was recently featured in Time. And now, to top it all off, the guy has a book out. The Green Collar Economy, is out today (here's the Amazon link). Green for All's work is surely one of the more innovative solutions for both our poverty and environmental problems, we're excited to see how far Jones can push it, and if it can actually work. Best of luck to him.
