Best Green Blogs

Best Green Blogs is a fantastic directory of green-themed blogs. Many are stories and tips from ordinary people living greener, and some are location-specific (Hawaii, India, Chicago, Pacific Northwest, etc.). Some cover green travel, some cover green weddings, and some cover alternative energy. This directory is definitely worth a look.

It was on Best Green Blogs that I found The Greenest Dollar, a blog with information about how to save money by saving the environment.

The Greenest Dollar featured a post on Monday about Nike’s Reuse-a-Shoe program, for all those shoes that are “too nasty for Goodwill.”

The good news is, there are tons of drop off sites so you don’t have to mail your shoes to Oregon – my nearest one is at the Boys & Girls Club in Minneapolis.

Happy reading!

Keetsa – Green Mattresses, Green Blog

So Keetsa is a provider of green mattress and assorted accoutrements. They buy directly from the supplier and send via UPS. The theory goes, UPS is already in your neighborhood. Might as well make them take a mattress, eh?


While I have bought the only mattress I will be buying for the next decade or so, I do heartily enjoy Keetsa’s blog. From solar iPod chargers to Leo DiCaprio’s green habits, Keetsa’s blog tells all.
