The premier of the Happy Hour With The Green Queen internet talk radio show was on April 3rd. Of course my first guest had to be Good Green Witch, she is the yin to my yang. If you are not familiar, Rhonda (the Good Green Witch) has her show on Green Earth Radio every Saturday at 11:00 am. I am a frequent guest on her show and which is how my show got started and why she had to be my first guest.
So you can’t have happy hour without cocktails right? I created the (appropriately titled) Yin Yang. You can get the recipe on my bar site GQ Eco Bartending.
On the show we spoke a lot about Easter and fair trade chocolate. Child slave labor is quite upsetting and very much a reality. My idealist (yang) side wants to believe that once people are aware of such horrific conditions, such as child slave labor in the cacao fields, that they would put a stop to it. At the very least stop advocating it (if you buy Hersheys, Nestles and about 90% of the chocolate out there, you are advocating it). The realist in me sees this isn’t so but I know this is an opportunity for me to ‘be the change’. This is all any of us can do right? So you can buy me some fair trade organic chocolate for Easter, or any given Sunday for that matter!
We also talked about some of our favorite products from the Natural Products Expo we attending. Look for reviews on these on our respective blogs.
You can listen to the show here. Available on itunes soon.
