If you follow Pamela French's woman-on-the-street videos through her A Greener Apple NYC YouTube channel, you've seen her visit tailgaters at a recent Bruce Springsteen show. The video is short and tightly edited, a snappy follow up to her longer visit to the Times Square pedestrian zone.
This time, some of the folks on camera make Miss South Carolina look smart. "Plant the seeds and more wooder," from a woman who doesn't seem all that drunk. "By eating it!" shouts one woman. Another asks for "more beer."
One gentlemen suggests more Heineken, which at least makes some sense, since the bottles are green (just ask the monks who made a temple out of the containers). Yet another girl says "more Corona." Yeah I really don't get that either.
There's the woman who seriously, intently says, "grow weed," and the surprising thing about that is she looks like someone's mother. Another says "we've got to get rid of those homeless people."
There are a few non-redonculous suggestions, such as more recycling of paper, reducing receipts, turning off lights and biking or riding transit. But for the most part, the future of green doesn't look particularly bright. At least in New Jersey:
Enter your city or zip code to get your local temperature and air quality and find local green food and recycling resources near you.
