This is Day 12 of the Green in 365 series!
As we’re getting started with this Green in 365 series, I thought I would share some of my favorite resources with your for reading, learning and researching about green and natural living.
It’s not always easy to find solid information and research about green living vs. the conventional, status quo way of doing things, for example it’s hard to find solid research on using cloth diapers instead of disposable, or cloth cleaning wipes and rags instead of paper towels. I believe that at least part of the reason for this is that there’s not as much money to be made in green and frugal living.
Parents who use cloth diaper will tell you how much money they save and how much better they believe it is for the environment, but there’s always someone quick to point out that washing diapers requires water and energy so that makes them less green, not taking into account the amount of raw material, water, energy, chemicals, etc. that are involved in making a single disposable diaper just so that you can use it once and throw it away. And unfortunately it’s very hard to pin down the true environmental cost of disposable diapers.
But, there are some amazing organizations that are doing their own research, and helping people to navigate eco-friendly and green living. And there are also some great bloggers who share their research and experience so that we can all learn from them. Here are a few of my favorites:
