Friday Green Links – 5/7
Birthday Edition! I’m off to see Jesus Christ Superstar tonight, but I’ve collected this ahead of time for you. Enjoy.
- Where Borrowing Is Greener than Buying – Pays to Live Green. I visit the library once a week to tutor, and I do borrow books, but I’m not convinced that getting books for free from the library is better than buying ebooks. It’s not like more resources are going into them, and don’t we want to support the writers and publishers of the books we love?
- Which Is Greener, Plastic Wrap or Aluminum Foil – Slate. Yes, I, too, stay up at night wondering about unimportant questions like this. So put your mind at ease, it’s aluminum foil. Or, more precisely, recycled aluminum foil that you then recycle.
- The Greenest High – Slate. Pot is the most efficient, but there are still major environmental issues with the way most of it’s grown.
- Swimming in the Charles Another Step Closer – Cambridge Chronicle. I don’t know that I ever would actually go swimming there, but I do go kayaking, and I’m glad it’s so much cleaner now.
- Use a Ceiling Fan Instead of an Air Conditioner – Energy Circle. A good reminder—it’s time to switch that ceiling fan back to counter-clockwise rotation for the summer.
- Concord Fires First Shot in Water Battle – Boston Globe. It’s a shame they did this right before Boston’s water “crisis.”
- Boil, Baby, Boil – Boston Globe. This basically says the same thing I did, but it’s nice to hear from another person.
That’s all for now. Remember to send anything interesting that you see this week my way.
