Green For All

The American organisation Green For All recently published its Annual Report for 2008.

Founded by Van Jones at the beginning of 2008, Green For All aims to combine the promotion of green practices with the creation of green jobs, the idea being that sustainability and protection of the environment is not something just for the so-called 'eco-chic', but can and should involve the lower-income groups, who can find work that not only is financially beneficial, but is also environmentally-friendly. As they state in their site, "We believe that the national effort to curb global warming and oil dependence can simultaneously create well-paid green-collar jobs, safer streets and healthier communities."

Van Jones, the founder of Green For All, has also written a book The Green Collar Economy, and you can watch the short video below where he talks about it.
