Memo Pad: Moving On... New Hire... Greens Like Fashion, Too...

Not many correspondents leave the hallowed halls of The New Yorker, but the Condé Nast weekly has just lost a big one.

GREENS LIKE FASHION, TOO: The New York Times Home section last week focused on "freegans," a group who decorate their homes (and sometimes themselves) with other people's castoffs. But the Prada-Louboutin-wearing set can still be environmentally friendly, too — which is why Hearst Magazines' Web contribution to the "green revolution," The Daily Green, has launched a fashion blog for all those people who want to look nice but not kill trees. Writer Starre Vartan, who is the founder and editor of, will provide commentary on the latest trends and products in green fashion and beauty. A spokeswoman for The Daily Green said the site, which had its beta-launch on Earth Day, will hold its official launch sometime in the fall. — A.W.

The Accessories Council has unveiled the honorees for this year's ACE Awards, to be held on Oct. 5 in New York. Valentino will be bestowed Brand of the Year, Terry Lundgren has been named Retailer of the Year, Tory Burch will be cited for Accessory Brand Launch and Scoop has been named Specialty Retailer of the Year. W and WWD's executive editor, Bridget Foley, will receive the Mary Lou Luther Award for Fashion Journalism and editor in chief Glenda Bailey will accept the honor of Magazine of the Year for Harper's Bazaar. — Sophia Chabbott
