We are taking a single break for Productivity Mondays. The regularly scheduled program will return next Monday.
I have been an environmentalist since a child, when I lectured my parents about the use of water and re-use of materials. I believe that we have an obligation to use the planet wisely, and to safeguard our natural assets. I live a fairly green life, and I’m always on the lookout for ways to make it greener. Here are five blogs that I follow regularly in Green Living:
No Impact Man. No Impact Man is the blog of a man trying to have an adjusted 0 footprint on the earth, while living in a big city. He has documented various things he has tried, as well as his successes at contacting legislators.
The Sierra Club. A foremost and long-standing organization for environmental stewardship and action, the Sierra club has long been known for its work. Its blog gives great tips and roundups of various links regarding environmental issues.
TreeHugger. The blog of Treehugger, it also showcases original environmental how-tos and tips, as well as featuring issues. I like this blog because it doesn’t just parrot content from the Sierra Club.
Simple-Green-Frugal. Simplicity, frugality and green-ness often go hand in hand. This blog incorporates the many practical tips that hit all three.
Beansprouts. I’m not sure how I got turned on to this blog, but I love the down-to-earth practicality and path of Melanie. She’s really making an effort to learn, and is mostly successful and sometimes not quite so much. (I will never, ever get the image of honey tainted with mouse urine out of my head.). She’s bright, cheerful, and a good read.
When I was looking up the URL for blogs above, I ran across two other blogs on green living that look promising. They’ve been added to my feed reader.
IdealBite. I love the introduction on their website, which promises to sift through information so it can be applied easily
Green Living Tips. This one promises to be chock-full of tips.
