The Sisters of Sustainability with Tom Feegel

16 Apr 2010 by Lewis, View Comments

One of the beautiful things about Social Networking is the ability to find like-minded friends. Several weeks ago, I was invited to join the “Green My Parents” Facebook group and through that invitation met their founder, Tom Feegel. Green My Parents is an organization which sets out to have kids encourage their parents to make environmental changes in the home. The commitment is to reduce household spending by $100 a year via these changes. Tom’s goal is to recruit a million kids and their parents to commit to saving $100, thereby creating $100 million dollars for the environment.

Given the nature of his work with Green My Parents and the work I am doing to document green heroes for my own book project with Laura Seydel, I found myself on the phone with Tom to discuss our common interests. In that conversation, Tom told me that he believes the sustainability movement possesses qualities which traditionally have been female in nature. Tom mentioned the growing tribe of the “sister of sustainability.” Don’t you LOVE that term?

I have asked Tom to speak more on this subject for Woman Are Saving The World Now as I believe his opinion carries much truth. In the following three videos, Tom speaks with me in a very frank and honest manner about his observations on this topic. What I love about Tom is that he is a careful messenger and I can tell is understands the sacred nature of this conversation as two men enter into a dialogue on a long running and important story of male and female. Thank you Tom for your time and passion.

The book, Green My Parents, comes out this month. I hope you will encourage your girls and boys to join the Facebook group and get on board with this work.
