About sustainablog and contacting us

sustainablog started in July, 2003, as an experiment in “writing to learn”: author Jeff McIntire-Strasburg, then an assistant professor of English, decided to apply some of the concepts he preached to his students to his budding interest in sustainability. The rest, as they say, is history: sustainablog is now one of the longest-running green blogs on the web. In October, 2014, sustainablog concentrated its focus on waste issues: reducing it, reusing, recycling, or upcycling it.

sustainablog has received mentions in the San Francisco Chronicle, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Sacramento News & Review, Review of Policy Research, and on dozens of blogs and sites around the web.

    Hello,

    Due to the new Google Panda release, some websites who use “unnatural linking strategies” have been penalized. I have been asked by my company to have links to maxwellsystems.com removed from places on the web that have little to do with the company business, which is developing construction software.

    I am sory to have to ask you to do this, I know it is a pain, but can you plase remove the link to http://www.maxwellsystems.com from your website. In this case it is on this page: http://sustainablog.org/2012/12/cardboard-bike/ in the anchor text “contractor software”.

    I would really appreciate your assistance. In doing so, perhaps your site will be resistant to the new Google Panda update that penalizes sites.

    Thank you.

    Dear Jeff, editor of sustainablog,

    I’m a concerned blogger myself and would love to contribute to this site.
    What could I offer? I live in Portugal and am well-connected in Europe (Amsterdam, Berlin, Paris nexus) meaning I could write about sustainable projects going on in these cities that are of interest for the rest of humanity.
    I honestly admit that I am also a family father without a job and without a garden – meaning I need money to feed my child. However, writing for your blog would be my honor and could serve as a reference to increase my “net worth” (I hate to think in those terms, but feel forced to).

    On my blog creativechoice.org you’ll find some of my writing.

    Best regards

    Kamiel Choi

    Dear Sir/Madam

    I made a 1min film about aquaponics. In this film we see Els, who works at an experimental aquaponics farm in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. She hopes that food can be grown locally in the city in a very environmental friendly way. With this film I want to make people aware of aquaponics as a sustainable farming method, and explain in a short way what it is about. The film has been shortlisted for WaterAid and WorldView’s first global sH2Orts film competition. I am in the running of winning the Public Choice award and need the most views to be getting this prize. I see this as a great opportunity to raise awareness for this method of sustainable food growing. I would really appreciate it if you could support this film by putting it on your blog and sharing it with your followers. Here is a link to my film: https://vimeo.com/120583072

    Many thanks,

    Saskia

    Hi, Jeff: This is Michael Stamps at Delaware Valley University. (Hopefully you remember me from UNLV in the late 90s!) Anyhow, we are organizing our sustainability symposium at DVU, and I was hoping you might want to be involved. Check out our webpage (www.precariousalliance.org), and shoot me an email when you get the chance (Michael.Stamps@delval.edu). Best, Michael
