I Need...A Shopping Guide

>> Tuesday, February 3, 2009

This is a list of the shopping guides I've posted on this blog. It will be updated on a regular basis as I add more.

The idea for the "Baby Step," "Jogging Stride," and "Marathon Runner" categories came from a post by No Impact Man, and I explain the thinking behind it in more detail here.

Looking back over some of the posts here, I'm worried that a first time visitor to my blog would get the wrong impression about living a green lifestyle. I don't want people thinking that going green is really hard because you have to stress about every detail, including your razor blades. And I think it's dangerous to get caught up scrutinizing little details but end up missing the big picture. On the scale of things that matter to the environment, razor blades are pretty far down there.

As a Conscious Shopper, I personally want to be conscious about the buying choices I make in every aspect of my life, down to the smallest detail. And if you're like me, I hope you'll see this information as a handy guide to get you started.

But even if you're not interested in changing your razor blades, I hope these posts will at least set you on a path toward my overall philosophy: that we need to live more consciously, aware of how our purchases and actions affect others and the environment.
