nancy pelosi, you go girl

I'm only just hearing about this, but apparently Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, introduced a mandate last spring to make the House of Representatives a more environmentally friendly place to eat and work.

The cafeterias actually sound worth eating in! Let's hope this has some influence on other policy makers...
