This month's Project Spectrum color is Green. My favorite! Unfortunately, I don't have any green knitting to show at the moment, so instead I thought I would devote this post to green in the ecological sense.

B and I strive to live as eco-friendly as we can. We could still do a lot more like consume less and conserve more, but we do try to make sound choices whenever possible that are healthier for us, our pooch, and the environment.

There are lots of nifty websites out there that are very informative on how you can live a little greener, if you're interested. One of my favorites is Ideal Bite - a great website that offers green living tips in their daily emailed newsletter. You can reference their Tip Library, or go here to sign up! Another great resource is Treehugger - an online magazine chock-full of articles and directories of where to find green products and services.

There is a lot of room for improvement where I am concerned, but as I continue to work on it, I feel that the little things really can make a difference, and it's not hard. :)

We try to live as green as possible too. As the kids get older we are planning on trying to do things together as a family and get our kids thinking about what it means to be ecofriendly as well.

I like the picture and the reminder about the other meanings of "green." :)

I was planning to do a *green* post like this too ;) I hope you don't mind... I will reference you! Kris and I are commited to living as green as possible as well. I subscribed to Treehugger about 2 months ago, and I have learned so much from that site. Another good one is Grist - similar format as Treehugger. Thanks for the other links.

I am so glad to see that these issues are important to others as well. Many thanks for this post, Nonnahs ;)

I wonder if Vanity Fair joined Lolly's Project Spectrum ... all on the way to world domination through knitting blogs, of course.
