On a daily basis, there are things you can do. Change your shower head to low flow. Don’t drink bottled water, use filters. If you go out to eat a lot, find restaurants that use local food resources. Go online and find information and change what we really are doing on a daily basis. That’s where we can really make a difference.

Q: A final question: What is the one thing we could all do RIGHT NOW, and cheaply, to help the environment?

A: This is real strange for me to say, but it’s something that can help. What if one day a week, we say we’re not going to eat any meat. I’ve adopted meatless Tuesdays. I don’t eat meat on Tuesdays…. The reason is, I could live on cheeseburgers, but there are more and more studies coming out – one was just in the Wall Street Journal – showing the vast amount of resources that go into producing meat: Hundreds and hundreds of gallons of water just to create a burger. So, the lower we eat on the food chain, the less resources we have to use. So I said, One day a week, I’m not going to eat meat. It’s a conscious choice. Anyone can do it, anywhere. (And it is . . . cheap.)

Q: Very last question, where can we find the LE?

A: Daily at 11 a.m., EST, on Sirius’s (satellite radio) Lime Radio, channel 114. The website/blog is at (Note: There is a competing LE with a similar web address, The Lazy Environmentalist in the UK, not to be confused with Dorfman.)

The Vivavi showroom is at 644 Manhattan Ave., 2nd Fl, Brooklyn NY, 11222; 1-866-848-2840.

The 2005 book, titled “The Lazy Environmentalist: Your Guide to Easy, Stylish Green Living,” is available at most bookstores. Another is in the works.

  One Response to “A Lazy Environmental Activist? Dorfman Says He’s No Oxymoron”

  1. ok, ok, i’ve been shamed into being more environmentally conscious. this interview establishes, at least for me, going green really ain’t that traumatic; what we’re doing to the earth, on the other hand, is.
