Do you have an Eco-friendly blog or site? Do you occasionally write about the environment or ways to live green? If you answered yes to any, you're invited to link up. Here are the rules:
1. If you have a green-living blog and/or write about the environment, sustainability, etc., please use the "linky" below to list your site.
2. If you only occasionally write about green living, please use tags such as "green", "Eco", "Environment", etc. and then link to that collection of posts so that visitors will be directed to pertinent articles.
3. Visit at least one other site (and while not required, it would be nice if you told them that you found them here).
4. The linky will stay active until Thursday at 6:00 pm (EST).
5. Using Random.org, I will choose one of the sites listed and feature it next week.
Our featured site this week is ... Four Green Steps - Eco Friendly Baby Bedding. I've said it before ... there is great power in how we spend our money. With each purchase, we make a statement saying that we support the company we're buying from ... we believe in them and their ethics. But doing all the research is WORK! Four Green Steps has taken the work out of shopping. They brand themselves as "The largest green marketplace in the world" and have just about everything one could possibly want to buy in their shop. One will find clothing, food, pet products and even seeds for the garden. The page which they suggested we visit contains Eco-friendly, organic baby bedding. Babies are so susceptible to chemicals and toxins which are often found in the materials we come in contact with. So it's especially important that we search for environmentally-friendly products for them. Four Green Steps is, however, so much more than a store. In fact, the marketplace is just one of four areas which they concentrate on. The others are the Infozone, the Community and School Programs. The Infozone and Community both offer a lot of great information ... everything from an article on the Top 10 Eco-Friendly Countries to easing the symptoms of a cold with Eucalyptus. There are recipes and Green TV. The School Programs section is really exciting ... it offers free environmental curriculum to students and teachers. I found some interesting activities for kids of all ages ... and there are even competitions with prizes because, in their words "Competitions are a great way to instill excitement and motivate students to get involved!" Four Green Steps is truly a wonderful resource. Hop over and see for yourself.
One note ... While I appreciate the work which Four Green Steps has done to ensure that we are introduced to green products and companies, I still feel that we, as consumers, have a responsibility to check out any suggested vendors. An educated consumer is a powerful consumer!
This week's linky is now live so ... list your site, visit and have fun:
