Noteworthy Green: Green Envy, Flower Pod Stamps, The Pill, and More...

>> Wednesday, August 12, 2009

Check out my latest post at the Green Phone Booth: Overcoming Green Envy.

But after a few months of reading, I began to feel a new, uncomfortable feeling: green envy. Those bloggers seemed to have all the latest green technologies and toys. Their houses were decorated with beautiful sustainable materials. They wore eco-friendly clothing and drove energy efficient cars. Their children played with handmade toys made from natural materials, and they would have never let their babies drink from a plastic bottle.

I began to feel like an olive green gal blogging in a crayon box filled with forest greens. I can't afford all that stuff - green or not! And if I'm not buying all those "green" products, does that make me less green? Read more...

And other items of interest:

:: Eilleen at the Simple-Green-Frugal Co-op gives some amazing tips for reconstructing clothing. I really need a sewing machine...

:: Maya*made has examples of how to use flowers and pods for stamping fabric and material. Love it!

:: Green Bean at The Green Phone Booth has the most beautiful frontyard edible garden I've ever seen.

:: EcoYogini overshares about her use of the pill, but it was very interesting so I'm glad she did.

:: The New American Dream takes a historical look at the clothesline and invites you to post a picture of your clothesline on their Facebook page. Does my indoor clothesline count?

:: Greening Families provides information on how to turn your backyard into a wildlife habitat - and then get your yard certified with the National Wildlife Federation.

Thanks so much for the shout-out! I'm glad that you enjoyed my 'overshare' lol. :)

I also loved Green Bean's garden- so fantastic! And I really liked your green envy post. It was perfect timing for me. :)

Thanks for the mention! My love for the National Wildlife Federation has definitely grown this year; they have some wonderful programs.

Thanks also for the link to Simple, Green, Frugal's post. I'm taking sewing lessons next month and her article really got me excited to begin.

@Eco Yogini - I love when people overshare. Most of the time, it's exactly the kind of information I need but no one else will talk about!

@Steph - Oh, I'm jealous about your sewing classes. I really want to learn.
