Opportunity Green’s Top 10 Eco Twitterers To Follow

Posted on 22. May, 2009 by in Design & Culture

We scoured through hundreds of tweeps in the green space to find the best eco twitterers. Whether your focus is eco-fashion or clean tech, check out Opportunity Green’s list of the top eco twitterers to add to your list:

1. @grist

Grist.org is the hub of everything fun and green. Their witty, yet informative site has contributors from around the world scribing about politics, green business, living green, and just plain fun stuff.  Opportunity Green Co-Founder, Karen Solomon, had her latest post as one of the top living green posts last week.

2. @maxgladwell

Rob Reed, the face behind the Max Gladwell alter-ego, is almost like an eco-friendly Batman. He is using the alias and social media as his super power, launching green living into the mainstream. His spiderweb-like network of people is leading a wholesale shift to sustainable systems.

3. @NRDC

With 1.2 million members and online activists in its back pocket, New York Times has named NRDC as one of the nation’s most powerful environmental groups.  We think a round of applause is due for redirecting over 80% of expenses to environmental programs.

4. @ecofabulous

Opportunity Green adores the ecofabulous site which focuses on stylish, sustainable living. CEO and Founder, Zem Joaquin, shares her favorite beauty, fashion, and other fabulous picks each week. It is a must follow for any eco-chic!

5. @treehugger

TreeHugger is the leading media outlet dedicated to driving sustainability mainstream.  Basically, they are the @CNNbrk equivalent in the green space. We love their variety, tweeting about zombie ants and potato box gardens to spice it up.

6. @yourdailythread

Tracy Helper, Co-Founder of YDT, injects LA sunshine into her green tweets. Her website offers updates about the Los Angeles sustainable community, eco-events, and even organic beer!

7. @greenmeme

Consider this your typical RSS feed but pumped full of green adrenaline.

8. @ecofashionista

To all eco-fashion fans: follow Kelly Drennan, the Founder of Fashion Takes Action.  Drennan is forging ahead in Canada, helping fashion-based businesses of all sizes become more aware of their social and environmental impact, while learning the benefits of operating a more sustainable business. Keep it up Kelly!

9.  @GavinNewsom

San Francisco’s own Mayor Newsom tweets about everything from signing legislation tripling San Francisco’s municipal solar generation-installing the nations largest municipal PV system to appearing on the Rachel Maddow show.

10. @elephantjournal

Elephant Journal is the guide to ‘the mindful life’: yoga, organics, sustainability, genuine spirituality, conscious consumerism, fair fashion, the contemplative arts. Editor-in-Chief, Waylon Lewis, is the host of the “Walk the Talk Show” focused on everything from tech to fashion.
