Melissa McGinnis from

This week's episode of The Palm Springs Savant & Co radio show will focus on the environment and sustainable practices that make a difference. Early in the show I'll briefly explore wind power as a renewable energy source, and then later discuss concepts of Renew, Reuse and Recycle to understand how everyday choices you make in life can have a huge impact on the environment. I am excited to welcome Melissa McGinnis as my guest on this week's show. Melissa is a passionate, energetic, young up-and-coming Eco-Advocate working with Melissa's first hand expertise in marketing environmental messages into easy-to-understand concepts led to the popular web based TV show on Greenopolis that she developed. Her show is about converting waste to resources and resource conservation. In each segment Melissa shares useful tips, eco-advice and green stories on Greenopolis TV. Melissa brings her effervescent personality to The Palm Springs Savant & Co show in a way that will captivate and inspire you to begin thinking green.
About is a fun, interactive website that makes a very simple and powerful promise to its visitors. They pledge to be about doing good. Through their site, they provide information and tools to help you to recycle easily, help to save our natural resources for our children’s children, track conservation through recycling and re-use and educate and reward for conservation efforts. Greenoplois is unique in that they have "GreenOps Tracking Stations" at various retailers, such as Whole Foods Markets, where customers can do actual, “trackable” good for the planet. Greenoplois also offers rewards to its users for helping the world and changing the way we handle natural resource and recyclables.
Greenopolis is focused clearly on Recycling, Reusing, Repurposing, Waste-to-Resource and Conservation. They seem to understand that being sustainable is overwhelming to many people, and the world is changing so quickly it is difficult to keep up. To their credit, most of the stories and content on Greenopolis TV features beautiful pictures, interesting videos and are presented in a format that most people can easily follow. Greenopolis is a great resource, regardless of your knowledge of sustainability or depth of your commitment today, I recommend checking it out and using their site to the fullest potential. I know you will find Melissa McGinnis to be quite interesting and informative. I hope you will tune into this week's show #107. You can listen anytime from the BlogTalkRadio site, or on podcast from iTunes.

Rick, I don't know why you bothered typing anything AFTER the photo of Melissa, because it all looked like this..

"blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah"

Whoa.. *gulp*

Is there something she does or.. something.. ? What was that again?

LOL thanks Dave. Melissa is not only beautiful but she is also quite intelligent. Tune in and listen, with your eyes closed and you'll learn a thing or two :-)

That comment is funny!
What a great idea for your show. I think we all can do more to decrease our carbon footprint.

Kathy, Rhodester (aka Dave) will be delighted to see someone who appreciates his sense of humor. But let's not egg him on, he is already a silly man.

grace said... very like a very positive place to visit and watch. And yes, Melissa is beautiful, beauty and!

Rhodester said...

No, egg me on! egg me on! I want a whole omelet!

Thank you for calling me a "silly man," Rick. I try. Lord knows I try. Life without a laugh isn't life at all. Love without a laugh isn't love, either. And a laugh without life or love is still a laugh but it just isn't as funny. Whereas Love, life and laughing are all great but without each other they're.. uh..

..damn, got kind of lost there.

In case you don't know, Recyclebank has just teamed up with Greenopolis! Now you can earn both Recyclebank and Greenopolis points everytime you recycle. Check out this video-- I learned about the news here.
