Best Environmentalist: Brandi Clark Burton

You know that old American standard by the Carter Family, "Keep On the Sunny Side"? Don't hate us Brandi, but that should really be your theme song. The uplifting rendition sums up how Brandi approaches the environmental challenges of the day – not just by trying to turn lemons into lemonade, but by promoting a cleaner, healthier, happier planet so we end up with fewer lemons. Period. You want in on the mission? Check out the Brandi-inspired Austin EcoNetwork, a virtual clearinghouse of what's what. You'll see that sunny side shining through.
