Green Achers: A Recyled Job

You, too, could be the subject of a Kenny Be cartoon! His May 3 Worst-Case Scenario, "Greenprint Your Office in Six Easy Steps," follows Greenprint Denver director Beth Conover as she introduces such useful -- and fictitious -- creations as the combo office chair/composting toilet.

But now economics has trickled down to Kenny's heroine, and she's planning to leave her post as the head of Denver's "high-profile sustainability program" so that she can spend more time with her kids -- really! Conover still plans to work with Greenprint Denver, though; in particular, she wants to make sure next year's Democratic National Convention is the greenest ever.

And in the meantime, the hunt is on for a new director. Want to go for the green? The job -- which pays $70,000-$85,000 -- is listed here.. -- Patricia Calhoun
