Carnival of the Green # 138!

Posted on July 28, 2008 by Allie

I am so excited to be hosting Carnival of the Green #138.  I moved my column from CelebCause.com over to start Allie’s Answers on July 31, 2007, and immediately signed up to host Carnival of the Green.  My hosting date seemed so far off, and I worried I’d run out of eco-friendly things to talk about before I made it to my first blogiversary.

But here I am, a year later, full of ideas, excited to move forward into year two.  I’m so inspired by the amazing people who comment, e-mail, and share on this site.  And I am proud to be a part of the green blogging community.

Putting Carnival of the Green # 138 together has been so much fun – a review of some of my all time favorite green blogs.  I hope you enjoy these posts as much as I have.

Tip of the Day

If It Doesn’t Smell, Don’t Wash It

19980_m.jpg

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.
