Green Business Blog Carnival #9 at the Matter Network


Yep, the dog days are here, and everyone’s moving a little slowly… including me! Fortunately, David Ferris at the Matter Network was on top of his game on Friday, and published the ninth edition of the Green Business Blog Carnival.

A bit of a slow week (see above), but some unique news and insights as always.

On Friday, the Carnival heads back to Cleantechies, so make sure to stop by and check it out. If you’ve got a good green business blog post that like considered for inclusion in the Carnival, use the submission form at Triplepundit. And if you’d like to host the Carnival on your own green blog, check out the schedule for open dates…
