Tom Wilson from NYC, has this to say about the NY Times Magazine's feature on music producer & meditator Rick Rubin :
" Rubin wants to push Columbia Records into going "green" by eliminating the plastic jewel boxes that contain the CDs it sells - presumably because he is concerned about the environment. Yet he drives a Range Rover ( a gas guzzler if ever there was one ) and drinks the purest bottled water he can find ( petroleum again expended to transport, package and refrigerate it). All too often I find , celebrities and politicians can't WALK IT LIKE THEY TALK IT ."
Spot on Tim . It kills me when I look at all that unnecessary packaging that just gets trashed when I buy food from a supposedly educated retailer like WHOLE FOODS . Or yoginis who wear those fuggly (and smelly ) UGG boots and prop them up on the studio floor , road kill alert-
However, when I see my teachers driving in their Priuses, I know they are making the effort to walk the walk.
