Or close enough. New American Dream released the first in its series of Local Buying Guide geared for the kind of green and responsible shopping (without the consumerism) that speaks to a guy like me. And this first one covers the Adams Morgan, Dupont Circle and Foggy Bottom neighborhoods, which is good enough for me — I know Logan Circle, our neighborhood well enough — and doesn’t pretend to cover the whole city, which it doesn’t. I have a hard time getting excited about Starbucks, which they include, even if they do offer some green and fabulous coffee by request, but there are ideas and resources in it I haven’t thought of. Lastly, you can download it — no paper to keep up with.
Others are on the way: an odd mix of area, perhaps due to where they could get local teams. Good to see Nashville on the list and — of all places — Meadville, Pennsylvania, birthplace of a third of what’s now Meadville Lombard Theological School.
