I’d like to live greener.
For those who know me, this is mildly ironic, considering I’m a green thumb and my house is entirely plant-ful.
But that’s not the green I’m talking about. I’d like to do better with sustainable living and being more eco-conscious.
So this week, I’m looking at some green living blogs that will help me get there.
RecycleNation is a green-living focused site that makes “recycling, conserving, reusing and living wisely easy.”
It features a recycling location database. Clearing out the house and spring cleaning? No problem. Have some extra shopping bags that you’d like to recycle? Got it.

Ecocult provides news about “sustainable fashion and travel for the conscious woman.”
In addition to fashion and travel, topics also cover NYC, beauty, food, apartment, wedding, and sustainable shopping.
This is a cool site.

Eartheasy “provides solutions for sustainable living in the form of eco-friendly products, comprehensive guides, and informative articles.”
Some great recent articles include What Keeps Mosquitoes Away? Mosquito Controls That Actually Work, Are the Dangers of Asbestos Still Real?, Zero Waste: A Beginner’s Guide, and this awesome Composting guide.
