First of all, to those of you who have followed us since our humble beginnings (which were initiated, as so many things are, over cappuccinos late at night)–thank you. Without your readership we would not be able to continue to update you on the latest news, cleantech innovation, and cutting edge eco-fashions. Where else can you go to find out about a life-saving, inflatable skirt, and still get serious environmental news?
Now our co-founder and editor Karin Kloosterman shares her thoughts on Israel and the environment in an interview with the New Vilna Review. There are even some sneak prophecies foretelling what the future may hold for our site.

What about the have-nots?”
