www of the week: Oily Cassandra.

Via on May 21, 2008

It’s long been our mission to make “the mindful life”—living a good life that also happens to be good for others, and our planet—interesting to people who wouldn’t ordinarily care. Hopefully, through humor and hip design, we’ve reached a few frat boys, a few construction workers, a few Wal-Mart moms. But Oily Cassandra takes a different approach: good old fashioned sex appeal. The well-spoken (and long legged) Cassandra expounds on peak oil while performing a strip tease. I’m not sure what unsettled me more: the hard facts coming out of Cassandra’s mouth, or the fact that it takes a woman in a pink bustier to get people to “listen” to what’s going on with the planet we depend upon. In any case, it’s a creative approach to a critical issue!

    For the record, I didn’t mean to hate on construction workers—I actually know a roofer who is saving up to study herbal medicine. And I know a few moms who shop at Wal-Mart, they’re great people, though they may not be paying super close attention to the power of their purchases. I don’t know any frat boys, to date, but, you know, I’m sure they have their positive sides too.
