Carnival of the Green #205
I’m so happy to be hosting Treehugger’s Carnival of the Green this week! I’ve been reading it for a long time, and I’m really glad to finally be involved. Check out the November 23rd carnival at the Evangelical Ecologist. (We missed last week, so this will be two weeks of material.) And come back next week, when Daily Mitzvah will be hosting. On to the carnival:
- Tyler at Frugally Green presents Multiple Intelligences: Why You’re a Green Rock Star but Suck at Saving Money, all about different learning styles and how we can put our particular styles to use. If you wondered, I scored highest at Intrapersonal, Linguistic, and Mathematics and lowest at Kinesthetic, Interpersonal, and Visual. Can you say solitary bookworm?
- Sally Kneidel at Veggie Revolution reviews Jonathan Safran Foer’s Eating Animals. I’ve heard lots of good stuff about this book, most recently from my boss, who may become a pescetarian because of it. Definitely going on my wishlist.
- Philip Booth at Ruscombe Green offers Water Saving Tips. I think our biggest sin in this area is our 2.5 gpm showerhead. The largest amount of hot water used in a household is usually the shower, so we could cut ours almost in half by getting a 1.5 gpm showerhead.
- EcoDiva at Bargaineering gives us 5 Green Ideas for a Naturally Clean Home. I’ve really got to try these. We recently bought a gallon jug of white vinegar, but haven’t had a chance to experiment much with it yet.
- RecycleCindy at MyRecycledBags.com offers up a Christmas Plarn Stocking Pattern.
- Beata Antoszek at MomandDadCamping.com discusses Leave No Trace Principles for Ethical Camping.
- Marie Snyder at Project Earth shares the OneEarth video-letter to Stephen Harper made by high school students.
- Simon at Road.cc presents Jingle bicycle bells – green Santa swaps his sleigh for a bike.
- Scott Artis at JournOwl presents The Salmon Problem: 10 Years and No Solution.
- And Beth Terry at Fake Plastic Fish gives away Planet Box stainless steel lunch containers.
Not many Twitter submissions this week, so I found a few of my own:
- @SallyKneidel Sick of raking? Mow your leaves instead of raking them. Your hungry trees will thank you. http://sallykneidel.com/?p=806
- @CambEnergy Here is a neat tool to track the progress of the international Climate Change negotiations currently underway. http://bit.ly/7sgQyH
- @ConsciousShoppr What we buy (or don’t buy) has more of an effect on the environment than you might think. http://bit.ly/7JWZQl
- @BrendaPike To save energy, use the dishwasher? http://wp.me/pzYeS-8Q
Yeah, that last one was mine. What can I say, I’m an attention-whore.
That’s all! Thanks everyone for participating.
