Noteworthy Green: Big Green Move, The Omnivore's Delusion, Superhero Capes, and More...

>> Thursday, August 20, 2009

Check out my latest post at The Green Phone Booth: The Big Green Move Checklist.

My husband and I have moved six times in the seven and a half years of our marriage, and I'm sick, sick, sick of moving. Every move has its annoying qualities, but this one has been particularly annoying because I focused so much during the last year on greening our life, and I feel like in many ways I'm starting all over. Except that I can't remember what it was I did in the first place.

I'm a big fan of itemized lists with little boxes for checking, so I decided that what I need is a "green moving list." And since JessTrev is in the middle of a move and a Green Phone Booth reader (Cath) commented on my last post that she will be moving soon also, I thought I'd make this list available to all of you as well.

And elsewhere on the Internet:

:: Tom Philpott at Grist responds to "The Omnivore's Delusion: Against the Agri-Intellectuals" (a popular article that attempted to debunk the sustainable food movement).

:: Imagine Childhood has directions for how to make a butterfly net.

:: Floating World Views provides instructions for making a child's superhero cape.

:: Peppermags shows us some solar power tiles that blend into a clay-roofing system such as on Spanish style homes. Pretty cool!

:: Renaissance Garden reveals that "all the tote bags received at Old Navy come wrapped in individual plastic bags which are removed and discarded prior to being displayed." Holy cow!

The Old Navy thing is ridiculous. I remember, last year, reading how The Gap and maybe Old Navy tossed all their plastic hangers after using, instead of reusing them for new clothes coming in.

@green bean - Wow! That is so disheartening. Another reason to shop at thrift stores.
