living green

Check out this awesome blog at Green As a Thistle. The author has a "My Green Year" project that started in January--basically, she's made one earth-friendly lifestyle change each day this year, and has kept ALL of them up.

Her research is great because not only does she give you tons of ideas for little things you can do to reduce your carbon footprint, she's really candid about which things have been easiest and hardest for her, why, and whether their net value was really worth her sacrifice. For example, she quit chewing gum, that was super-simple, and she's had no problem keeping that up--while it significantly reduces carbon footprint. Organic shampoo, however, has been the bane of her existence, since she still hasn't found one (since March) that cleans her hair.
