trendwatching: oil-rich UAE opts for green city

In this podcast, Cathi Bond spots an interesting item in sustainability.  Abu Dhabi is building a huge, sustainable part of the city, which will be walled and entirely car-free.  What an interesting move to create a car-free city when you're an oil-based economy. What does that suggest about the future (via Gizmag) Meanwhile, Nora talks about Power House, a great gift for green kids.  It's a project kit, but full of enviro-friendly projects to take on, and yet another example of the growth of 'green chic'. (via BoingBoing)   As well, Nora mentions another great gift idea: the Prepara Herb-Savor to keep your fresh herbs, er, fresh. Smart thinking! (via Popgadget)
