Each week the hour long talk radio show will cover a different aspect of contemporary green living including eco-fashion, sustainable furniture, green building and architecture, eco-travel, and sustainable transportation. Dorfman’s guests will be the designers and entrepreneurs who are actively pushing sustainable living into the mainstream.

“This intense conversation has been going on within the design community for a long time about how to integrate environmental principles into mainstream products and services,” says Dorfman. “However, it’s just within the last couple of years that the forces of technology, commerce and environmental necessity have begun to align in ways that are enabling more and more eco-designers to move from concept to prototype to saleable product, be it a shirt or sofa or luxury high-rise apartment building. Through “The Lazy Environmentalist” we’re sharing these innovative developments with a wider audience.”

Aligning contemporary design with environmental responsibility is a focal point for Dorfman who launched in 2003 for that express purpose. As more and more opportunities abound for consumers to bring these two interests together, Dorfman is at the forefront of a profound shift towards a modern green lifestyle.
