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.
