Noteworthy Green: Walkable Cities, Glue Sticks, Sesame Street, and More...

>> Wednesday, November 11, 2009

Check out my latest post at The Green Phone Booth: These Cities Weren't Made for Walking.

My butt is mad at me tonight.

Earlier today, I had a meeting downtown, so I loaded up the stroller - three umbrellas, two kids, one backpack, and a partridge in a pear tree - and hauled all 100 pounds of it up and down North Carolina's hills to the bus stop a half a mile away. We took a quick trip on the bus to my husband's office, and then I deposited the load in my husband's safe hands before heading off to the meeting.

And elsewhere on the Internet:

:: As if to prove the point of my Green Phone Booth post, New Raleigh points to a study listing Raleigh as the sixth most dangerous city for pedestrians.

:: Loving Nature's Garden has ten tricks to get kids outdoors.

:: Kelly at The Green Phone Booth gives us the scoop on recycling glue sticks.

:: Planet Green lists 45 foods you can make yourself (but didn't know you could).

:: The Greenists celebrate Sesame Street's attempts to help children go green.

I'm now using Twitter to keep track of my noteworthy green reads. If you'd like instant knowledge of what I find interesting, you can find me on Twitter as consciousshoppr.

Thanks for the link. By the way, your Twitter link isn't working - the one for following you on Twitter. I am @alisonkerr - am I following you already?

@Alison - Thanks for letting me know. I think it's fixed now, and no, I don't think you're following me already. Great article, by the way!
