The Twelve Days of sustainablog: Dumpster Diving, Online Shopping and Hand Towels
With several new GO blogs launching in March, a few of sustainablog’s regulars moved on to other posting assignments. We were fortunate that a number of friends, such as the folks at Life Goggles, Environmental Defense Fund, and Eco-Libris, did admirable jobs in filling the gap. Additionally, we were pleased to republish several posts from the University of Kansas’ “Media and the Environment” course blog.
The original content we did publish was great stuff, of course. Take a look below, and see a few of the goodies from March (and not a single post on green beer!).
- Maria Surma Manka took a look at the Saudi’s interest in solar power.
- Victoria Everman reviewed online shopping guide thepurplebook’s green edition.
- Kyle Weatherholtz examined issues with wind power in Texas.
- Carol McClelland profiled some intriguing green companies.
- I reviewed the new “eco-thriller” novel The Ovum Factor.
- Environmental Defense Fund’s Fred Krupp argued for global warming’s silver lining.
- Chad Crawford discussed an Oprah episode that featured dumpster divers Daniel and Amanda Burt.
- KU student Travis Brown made much ado about the shoe.
- Another KU student, Lauren Keith, brought the 10 Greenmandents down from the mountain.
- And David Shaw showed us how your response to “Paper or Hot Air?” for hand drying can be “Neither…”
