I started this blog as a record of life, my thoughts and life's little lessons. Since entering the blogosphere, I have now accumulated more words of wisdom, interesting snippets and 'must-reads' to keep track of. It is a mind-field! Blog Bookmarks is a place to highlight some of my favourite finds for the week.
In honour of the the Carbon Tax legislation being passed into the house of representatives yesterday, I thought I would gather together some of the great 'green' blog posts I have been reading lately.
Tricia from Little Eco Footprints is an old school friend of mine. She lives as sustainably as possible from an urban backyard in Newcastle, NSW. I am impressed constantly with her creativity and commitment to all things green. Back in June she did this wonderful post that introduced me to the concept of an ecological handprint. Doing something positive? Now that is encouraging.
EcoMILF is a great green parenting blog. The woman behind the blog is a babywearing, cloth nappying, unschooling, vegetarian Mummy. Hard core. I especially like her posts on green cleaning, green beauty, and thrifting, upcycling and recycling.
Julie from Go Greener Australia (who also writes the Challenge blog at G Online) writes about all the high-brow eco-topics like carbon tax, as well as solutions for living greener in the home. This post titled "Just wash the spoons, ok?" is a corker.
Maria from Eco-nest writes beautiful posts about living more sustainably. Given the whole Buy Nothing New thing this one called Consume less, smile more particularly resonates with me.
The Eco-Novice who is Going Green Gradually is a new-to-me blog. I discovered her because I have been searching for beds for the twins. She did this fabulous post on 'affordable natural beds' which made me really reflect on exactly what my children are currently spending 12 hours a day on (on a good night, oh okay, more like
Rounding out the list is Brydie from CityHippyFarmGirl. Hers is a wonderful mix of a parenting, food, green living and whimsy. I confess that there are few of Brydie's posts that I don't love (she even manages to make sourdough recipe posts enthralling) but a couple of blog bookmarks of late include this one on reconnecting with nature city style and fairy sunrise (neither are particularly 'green' but both connected to nature).
So tell me, have you discovered any green blogs that I should be reading? Have you got a post that should be in this collection? Add the links in the comments.
