Earth Week: Green Computing Solutions #4 - Environmental and Green Blogs
Hi, there. I’m Stacey Reed and in this video I’d like to introduce you to some sites for green blogs and sites that provide environmental news, interactive media and maybe even some delicious organic recipes too. To start things up let’s take a look at the highly acclaimed mega blog TreeHugger. This upbeat, up-to-the-minute blog is dedicated to bringing green news, solutions and product information to the masses.
Whether they come to read a review of the latest hybrid or for the forums and quizzes or for the latest and green fashion trends, there’s no denying that the visitors of the site will find it highly informative and entertaining. With the name like TreeHugger come on what’s not to love.
Next stop is No Impact Man which is a blog about one family’s ongoing experiment of leaving in New York City without making any net impact on the environment. That means no trash, no emissions, no elevators, no packaging and no TV. Well you get the idea. Now by attempting to leave the sustainable lifestyle Blogger column can be and explore us ways in which we can all contribute and frequently reflects on deeper issues like the meaning of life, human happiness, and a roses consumers.

And last up, here’s one of my personal favorites, the Daily Green. This site offers trusted news, advice and information regarding earth-friendly living from global warming to green products and even nutritious seasonal recipes, the Daily Green covers it all.
In closing I just like to mention that one of the coolest things about blogs is the blog roll and all of these sites have one. So if you scroll down and you look in the side panel you can find recommendations for similar sites where you can find even more relative information. This is Ben just a sampling of some of the best green sites on the web. It’s encouraging to know that there are many like minded individuals coming together with the dedication to make the road a better place and ways both big and small.
