National Geographic has pictures of the remaining effects of the Exxon Valdez oil spill 20 years later.

Tiny Choices has an excellent post about boxed water.

EarthFirst charts out how much water we really use.  The results are startling.

Wise Bread gives us great tips for group gardening.

The Good Human compares Netflix to video stores to see which is more eco-conscious.

The Daily Green tries to explain why so many conservatives are still doubtful of climate change.

Scientific American talks about the effects of climate change on your home garden.

Green Up Grader talks about a hotel with rooms made from recycled wine casks! (thanks, NPW)

  2. I read the article on why conservatives etc. I went to the conservative blog he suggested as the alternative to Daily Kos. If you subscribe to their site, they will send you a book by Ann Coulter. Ann Coulter! I don’t care to read conservative sites, not because I want to insulate myself, but because so many of them are little more than vicious name calling excuses for non rational argument.
    I’m done ranting. Thanks Allie.

  3. I am definitely going to try out a wine cask room at some point in my life. Although I kind of wish they still had wine in them…

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It


According to Real Simple, if every American made an effort to launder less — cutting out just one load of laundry a week per household — we’d save enough water to fill seven million swimming pools each year.

So if it looks clean, and it smells clean, call it clean and wear it again. Consider hanging worn clothes out on your clothesline to freshen them up between wearings.
