I made it through week one relatively easy, but have learned quite a bit. Besides some information overload and late nights tooling around on the internet, I had fun with this task in my venture to go green. For those who are just joining us, my wife Ashley assigns me a green task every week and it is my job to complete that task. This weeks task was to start following some green news sites (The Daily Green, Tree Hugger, worldwatch.org) and also to find 3-5 other sites to recommend for Ashley to follow.
The three sites that Ashley gave me really give me a strong background and basis for much of my future work in this area. All of these sites are updated regularly and contain a wide variety of topics. I am sure that I will continue to use these sites as regular news source.
I have found 5 additional sites that I will continually follow. There will likely be some others that follow since I will continue to find ecofriendly resources, but here are the 4 I am going to give to Ashley and also add to an up and coming “Links” page;
Franke James - Franke James’ site is very fun to explore. She is an author/artist/photographer who compelled me to continue visiting her site with her visual essays.
My Zero Waste - This is a great resource on tips and how to reuse, reduce and recycle the things in our lives.
Go Green Street - This site provides a variety of useful green information that is organized in a manner that is very easy to navigate and a great user experience.
EnviroGadget - Envirogadget is a cool place where I can find and learn about environmentally friendly gadgets. Possibly where I can get my Christmas list from!
Tiny Farm Blog - This is a cool site that I am not sure I completely relate to, but it definutely fascinates me. We like to garden and it will be interesting to look into this site further and follow their going-ons. It looks like they are in Canada, so the weather is likely close to our lovely North Dakota weather.
For those of you who are following this site, I sincerely appreciate it and hope we can continue to entertain. Stay tuned because I will find out what week 2 has in store for me shortly. If you have any suggestions for me or Ashley (possibly suggestions for tasks), leave a comment below or contact us at either email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
