Meet The Green Divas
As an independent media source, The Green Divas is a generally underfunded enterprise, while not being a non-profit per se. The dedicated team’s goal is to amplify the amazing voices that are on the front lines of climate and social change and get the word out to the largest audience possible using humor, credible sources and technology.
Primarily producing in the digital format, The Green Divas have produced award winning radio shows, podcasts, videos, syndicated articles and of course social media for over 10 years and are well known as one of the early, founding green media companies.
The latest endeavor is the popular 50 Shades of Green Divas podcast, which has been getting over 50,000 downloads per month. Hosted by veteran radio chicks, Green Divas Megan McWilliams and Maxine Margo Rubin, this show draws on the best of their previous shows, The Green Divas Radio Show and The Many Shades of Green, while always adding a new fun twist.
Between them, they have interviewed and spoken with some of the leading voices in the climate and social change movement including; Jessica Alba, Ed Begley, Jr., Hillary Rodham Clinton, Ken Cook, Woody Harrelson, Paul Hawken, Mariel Hemingway, Van Jones, Michel Nischan, Willie Nelson, Raffi, Alice Waters, many many more…

5 Reasons Why You Need This Straw in Your Life
- We made this straw in the USA and it’s awesome. Our super fancy (aka borosilicate) glass is so amazing, it can withstand temperatures below freezing and up to 1500 degrees Fahrenheit! You’ll even find this stuff in the windows of the space shuttle! It’s also known as the same glass used in Pyrex®, but that’s not nearly as exciting as space shuttle glass.
- We’ve crushed down and lab tested all of the glass we use. It was really messy but totally worth it to let you know that there’s nothing nasty inside this glass. Unlike plastic, glass isn’t a porous material so it won’t leach into your mouth or drinks ever!
- You can clean your straw in the dishwasher. Yes, the super hot, sanitizing, easy-clean machine that is the dishwasher. We also sell a cleaning brush in case YOU are the dishwasher.
- You don’t like it? That’s cool. Just let us know and we’ll take it back, no questions asked. Except maybe, “What?? Why NOT!?!?” But really, it’s OK. Even though this rarely happens, we will put it to good use in our loving home.
- Each straw has a lifetime warranty. If you break it on accident (using it as a drumstick is not an accident!) we will replace it. We know you love your straw and will be sad without it, so we aim to make you happy again. Enough said!
