Friday Green Links – 3/19
I’m catching up on my reading this week, so there’s a lot, varying from household tips to national issues. Read on…
- Cooling Things Down – Green Phone Booth. Replacing her old refrigerator cut this woman’s electric bill by 40%!
- Companion Planting 101 – The Greenest Dollar. I don’t actually have a garden, but I think this is cool. And maybe I can use this info for my potted plants?
- How to Recycle Everything – Conscious Shopper. Including some things you might not think about.
- Carrying Our Own Containers – Fake Plastic Fish. Beth addresses lots of questions she gets about bringing her containers everywhere.
- Making Vegetable Broth – Viggie’s Veggies. Continuing my cooking research…
- Paint Your Home “Green” to Stay Healthy and Protect the Environment – Big Green Purse. More info about low-VOC paints
- Imitation sorta-Nutella – Green Mom in the Burbs. DUDE. Seriously.
- What’s Driving Our Favorite Fruit Into Decline? – Grist. Fewer chill hours per year are adversely affecting apple production.
- Saving U.S. Water and Sewer Systems Would Be Costly – New York Times. All the rain (and flooding) we had this week really emphasized the need for more capacity.
- Recycling Efforts Fail to Change Old Habits – Boston Globe. Massachusetts residential recycling rates are the same in 2008 as they were in 1997.
That’s all for now. As usual, if you come across something interesting, send it my way.
