Doug Moore spent the first ½ of his career building one for the largest publishing companies in America.  He founded Vulcan Publishing in 1987, and when it was sold in in 2005, revenues from their 60 media properties topped $50 million in sales and had more than 400 employees.  A father of six, landowner and avid outdoorsmen, his attention shifted to environmental issue out of concern for rampant pollution and waste generated by our consumer society.  He sought the answer to questions vexing environmentalists worldwide:

  • How do we meet the needs of the present without compromising future generations’ ability to meet their own?
  • How can we humans synchronize our consumption of natural resources with the earth’s production?

Seeking a solution, he began a journey that would change his life, and foster a positive environmental legacy for generations to come.



Pat Byington, editor of the Green Register, has worked in the environmental community for more than two decades. At the age of twenty-three, Byington became the youngest executive director of a statewide environmental organization in the country when he was hired by the Alabama Conservancy in 1989.  In eight years, he doubled the organization’s membership and their revenues grew nearly tenfold.  In 1998, Byington launched the online newsletter Bama Environmental News (BEN) ( ), as publisher and editor, establishing one of the first environmental news online publications of its kind.  Since 1999, he has worked as an environmental consultant and senior staffer for a wide variety of environmental organizations including the Wilderness Society, Eastern Forest Partnership, American Lung Association and Auburn University’s School of Forestry.  A prominent environmentalist, Byington has served on numerous regional and national non-profit environmental boards and has held public positions as a member of the Alabama Forever Wild Board of Trustees and the Environmental Management Commission.

Our talented cartoonist creates cartoon strips out of local news and company products or services of industries going green. Working with schools, teachers are now utilizing the cartoon strips, our local news “Green News You Can Use” section , and our general information of knowledge to create curriculum. Furthermore, we provide all schools a FREE internal page. The purpose for their own internal web page is that we want to know what green opportunities the school and students have created or implemented, so that we can share it with other schools. Bragging rights, sure!! However, sharing how they were able to implement it into their school and what impacts it had on their students, their community, and maybe even how it impacted their districts bottom line, is true bragging rights! There’s more if they act now their school will be entered into a drawings to win prizes. Universities, colleges, and State Certified Green Training Centers are using the site for curriculum and involvement, also receive an internal page, but this internal page is used for visual aid that misplaced workers and new students in the search for “green” carriers can utilize. Consumers can bounce from university page to university page comparing offerings of degrees and classes all related to reduction of consumption, sustainability, renewable energies, environmental, and health.
