Green Living Guy TV Segment on Sustainable Food

When it comes to food we really don’t talk about “Life cycle assessments”. Yet they can bring better farming techniques and animal awareness to farmers and those who regularly work with the meat industry. Collaborating with farmers and adjusting the way that they are paid will end up bringing much larger improvements into the food handling industry itself, starting at the source.

Below is my segment with NYC Media on Sustainable Food. We touch a lot of the things listed about the life cycle assessment and other things too!

I really also suggest to check out the Union Square Farmers Market! The most amazing food you’ve ever tasted  For real!

10 Celebrities Advocating for Climate Change

Studies indicate that celebrity culture has a significant influence on consumer choices and lifestyle. In a fun and lighthearted manner, I have shared interesting facts on how each celebrity has contributed towards a more sustainable world. 

I love that this idea 

  1. uses popular global figures to highlight sustainability
  2. inspires more people to be eco-friendly
  3. shows that climate change can be combated through activism

Green High School Buddy Celeb Robinne Lee went 50 Shades Darker

I’ve known Robinne Lee since High School. When I ever saw her, she wrapped me in a hug.

Welcoming, wonderful, beautiful, peaceful. content and yes beautiful are just some of the words that surround the energy of Robinne Lee.

Now, anyone that’s made the acquaintance of Robinne knows this is NOT an exaggeration. It’s Robinne.


Best part for me is she’s eco friendly too! Boom, Drop the Mic and check her out!

So yes I am proud that she’s starring in 50 Shades Darker. Robinne is playing the role of Ros Bailey (VP of Grey E. H.).

According to Indie Wire:

The film stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan as Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, respectively.

Lee will play Ros Bailey, VP of Grey Enterprises Holdings, Inc., and Christian Grey’s “second in command.” According to the “Fifty Shades” wiki page, Bailey is described as intelligent; can keep up with Christian in conversations, and he is at ease around her. She is a lesbian and her partner is named Gwen. She lives almost opposite Christian’s apartment in Escala.

Now I am definetly going to see this movie!! LOL

According to IMDB,

Universal is planning to shoot “Fifty Shades Darker” and the final pic, “Fifty Shades Freed,” back-to-back, with “Darker” set to bow Feb. 10, 2017. The last installment brought in $570 million worldwide, including $166 million domestically.

Other Movies 


Anyway, IMBD Lee also is an actress and producer; known for Hitch (2005), Seven Pounds (2008) and National Security (2003).

Author soon too!

Now we both are authors too! Robinne has a novel coming out in June called The Idea of You: A Novel. Here’s the book description on Amazon!  Please buy this book!

Solène Marchand, the thirty-nine-year-old owner of an art gallery in Los Angeles, is reluctant to take her daughter, Isabelle, to meet her favorite boy band. But since her divorce, she’s more eager than ever to be close to Isabelle. The last thing Solène expects is to make a connection with one of the members of the world-famous August Moon. But Hayes Campbell is clever, winning, confident, and posh, and the attraction is immediate. That he is all of twenty years old further complicates things.

What begins as a series of clandestine trysts quickly evolves into a passionate and genuine relationship. It is a journey that spans continents as Solène and Hayes navigate each other’s worlds: from stadium tours to international art fairs to secluded hideaways in Paris and Miami. For Solène, it is a reclaiming of self, as well as a rediscovery of happiness and love. When Solène and Hayes’ romance becomes a viral sensation, and both she and her daughter become the target of rabid fans and an insatiable media, Solène must face how her romantic life has impacted the lives of those she cares about most.

Future Bright 

Obviously this Lee’s future is bright. As a friend of Robinne, I’m just saying: Couldn’t happen to a better person.

As I’ve mentioned in years past, The Green Living Guy Green Breakthrough Model of the Year must possess inner beauty, strength and also a real understanding of life, our world and how to be. Yes. How to be. Eleni possesses all these qualities and then some. 

Every year it seems that great Breakthrough models always are like cream (they rise to the top). Eleni is also a New Yorker so we got along just just fine. We see eye to eye on life, living and love. Yes love. Not the physical type but the personal emotional type. She loves people, her skincare and loves being who she is. That sense of self exudes loud and clear. It stood out to me as clear as day. So right on Eleni for just getting it!

She came up with these products to save her own skin. Now it’s for sale to everyone!  Yes!!

Here is a segment of Eleni’s story

At 13, I wanted to be a model. So I did some research and took the train into a rainy Manhattan. In the elevator up to the 7th floor I stood quietly armed with nothing but the intention of kicking down every door. Somewhere between the second and fifth floors a Wilhelmina scout named Karenlee grabbed my hand and said come with me! 

Now, a few minutes later, I’m 40!  I’ve run a marathon in a business renowned for sprints. I’ve seen the world. I’ve been pushed and prodded into and out of corporate dreams, and I’ve most certainly been covered with every makeup and hairspray, hair dye and nail polish, moisturizer and toner, perfume and powder ever devised by mankind.

Sometimes I look back and see myself as a crash test dummy–what I endured professionally, everyone else did and still does voluntarily. At one level, it made total sense, but at another, no sense at all.

For years, I watched professionals use products on me only after they’d wrapped and protected themselves in rubber gloves, aprons and in some cases even masks! Hmmm..

But what about me? What of my skin? What of my hair? What of my organs? No one had an answer for the little girl beyond ‘you’ll be fine.’

As an adult I know that’s the way we’re expected to live. Do what we’re supposed to do, do what everyone else does, don’t rock the boat. My world was hair and makeup. If I wanted to work then I had little choice, but I had a secret.

Without ado, I began experimenting with different forms of detox. While ramping up my health, fitness and diet, I explored different methods of detoxification–60-day cleanses, colonics, water pills, water enemas, coffee enemas, coconut pulling, hot springs sulfur baths, acupuncture, scalding foot baths, vitamin pills, herbal teas, herbal baths, facials so deep they called them extractions–I wanted those toxins out!

That said, I’d forever had borderline problematic skin, my face always on the cusp of explosion. Like everyone else I wanted perfect skin but how to get it? Like everyone else I migrated from one brand & product to another, to another, even at one stage, signing up for monthly deliveries of peroxides and acids. Sure I lost pimples but my entire face went LUNAR–bleached, gray, cratered, and dead!

Eleni is also founder of a company called kos organic that has taken the green business scene by storm.There had to be another way. And so began the confluence of life’s seemingly random events. The past met the present which met the future and I became one–kös organic skincare (although at the time I had no idea).

By heritage, I’m Greek. Greeks believe fine olive oil courses through their veins and that there’s nothing it can’t cure. So began my experimentation with oils and with it a cornerstone of the kös map. By the way, olive oil failed my face.

My exposure to herbal teas and baths revealed the tip of a latent passion for botany and herbalism. Assign whatever values you wish to modern medicine but in the process do not discount the power of nature. Since well before Hippocrates, the power of herbs has coursed the history of medicine. And so came the second kös cornerstone.


My legitimate loathing of toxins and the flip attitude of these massive corporations toward the health and welfare of their unsuspecting customers, coupled with a complete lack of government oversight in an industry described by insiders as the ‘wild, wild west,’ should enrage each of us. What’s so wrong with the idea of safe, effective products? Something that helps one part of you without hurting another? Meet the third cornerstone.

But while these are three massive drivers behind my own experimentations, never in my wildest dreams did it occur to me as something for anyone else. I wanted perfect skin. I wanted health. The more I learned the more I realized my goal could never be achieved through synthetic chemicals, certainly not the way the conglomerates were going about it. To them, it was a game of sales and marketing. I couldn’t understand why premium organic herbs were only being toyed with.

Meet the third cornerstone.The final cornerstone on this map now known as kös organic skincare was the birth of my children. No matter what I myself was prepared to and had endured, it would be a cold day in hell before I’d let any of it near my children.

I’ve taken decades of personal knowledge and experience, and transformed my life, my home into a toxin-free zone. For six years, I’ve done little else but research and hone effective products for the purpose of excluding other products, always for the exclusive use of my family. Now, by popular demand, it’s ready for you.

Know that if it says kös, it says me. Know that if it says me, it says my kids. Know that if it says my kids, it’s toxin-free, organic, safe and thoroughly EFFECTIVE!
