God is Green, huh.

I have been listening to the Mars Hill Bible Church, God is Green series. The series has been pretty interesting. A lot of it is stuff I have been trying to practice in my own life. The best part of the series came at the end, on July 29th. The preeminent piece is all the practical information (in the form of a list of websites and books) on how to make simple life changes for a huge positive environmental impact. So, I thought would reproduce the list here below. You can download it directly from the Mars Hill Bible Church website here.

    Could I also ad ecoratzi.com which is a blog where celebrities are caught ‘green’ handed. Both good and bad in terms of their green behavior.

    I’ve also got a site with a very ‘green’ focus http://www.rentoid.com where the aim is to get people to rent their belongings off each other. Utilise each others idle assets to reduce consumtpion but not downgrade our lifestyles.
    Cheers, Steve

    Becoming more ecologically minded, eh? Good call. There is also Native Seeds/SEARCH (nativeseeds.org). They’re more about crop production but still a very interesting organization.

    Great additions to the list everybody. Please keep them coming. If you have a website or practice a way of being more eco-responsible, please let us know.
