Saturday Green Links – 4/9
I’m not sure exactly what makes Babeland’s sex toys “eco,” but I’ll bite. I don’t think I want a stone dildo, though…
- Babeland Donates 10% of Eco-Toy Sales to Grist During April – Babeland. Sex and environmentalism: my two favorite things!
- In JP, food scraps and yard waste fuel door-to door composting company – Boston Globe. I think the city should actually be doing this, but until that happens, this is a cool entrepreneurial idea.
- JP Shopping Spree – Jamaica Plain Patch. While I think the attacks on Whole Foods are misguided, I think drawing attention to local businesses is admirable.
- Mother Nature’s Melting Pot – New York Times. Did you know honeybees aren’t native to North America?
- Randolph firm’s vending machines dispense water, without bottles – Boston Globe. Whatever happened to water fountains? I guess this is the next best thing.
- Energy company, city working together to use byproduct of electricity generation to heat and cool buildings – Boston Globe. I always wondered what that steam coming out of manholes was…
- How To Cook Dried Beans – A Staple of Plastic-free Living – My Plastic-Free Life. I’m experimenting with dried beans, but I haven’t gotten used to them yet.
I was too busy to read much this week, so please send me anything cool you come across.
