There are so many exciting things happening in the green blogosphere. The news ranges from the new USDA nutrition standards for school lunches to a study showing drinking red wine in moderation could reduce your risk of breast cancer.
I’ve been jet setting around the web over the past few weeks and wanted to share a few of the places I’ve landed.
Climate change is a growing concern throughout the world. In an effort to take action and inspire others to join in, the mighty women of the Green Moms Carnival collectively joined voices to speak out and share what we’re doing to fight climate change. My post, Four Resolutions to Fight Climate Change, is included among the many other suggestions for fighting climate change.
Snow and ice has made an appearance in many parts of the world. Many conventional snow and ice removal products contain toxic chemicals. These nasty chemicals could end up tracked into our homes on the bottom of shoes and boots. They could also end up in our yards, on our sidewalks and in our waterways once the snow and ice begin to melt.
Thankfully, there are a few ways to keep your driveways and sidewalks clear of snow and ice without using toxic chemicals. Click HERE to read more.

Reuse and Repurpose
The saying goes: “One person’s trash may be another person’s treasure.” We live in a use-and-toss society where most of the time we don’t give a second thought to using an item once and then tossing it. If we stopped before tossing we might realize that some of those items that seem ripe for the trash can be repurposed into something completely different for our own use. That trash could become our own treasure.
There are so many creative ways to reuse and repurpose everyday items we find in our homes. Head on over to Healthy Child Healthy World for this week’s round-up of posts on repurposing and reusing. I’m honored that my post, 3 Creative Ideas for Reusing and Repurposing, was selected as the Blog of the Week.
Have yourselves a very groovy green weekend! Any big plans?
