Today’s featured guest, Joseph Malki, is the co-founder and partner of Seven-Star, - located in Asheville, North Carolina (USA). Seven Star Events is a global leader in greening the entertainment industry and has recently been honored with the EPA Waste Wise Award – no small feat, to be sure.

Joseph and I had a wonderful discussion about how to the organization is run, the work they do and so much more. We discussed:,, Green Festivals, Green America, Coop America,, Mother Earth News, Better World Telecom,...World Wildlife Federation... and others. Learn how willing volunteers are to participate in green events, how to market the green event and educate the patrons. Discover alternative products, power, sound systems, food, sponsors...

I was so inspired by this interview that I will be emailing all the festivals in the province of BC (Canada) and getting them to tune in to hear this exceptional advice.

According to the Japan for Sustainability Org: (
Japan's office equipment supplier Ricoh Co. set up an eco-powered sign in Times Square in New York City (U.S.) for a lighting in December 2008. With its hybrid power generator and batteries for power storage, the billboard will be powered entirely by the sun and the wind, needing no electricity supplies from other sources. The sign (14.3 x 38.4 meter) bearing the company's logo will be equipped with four wind turbines and 63 solar panels.
