4 Green Living Blogs for Eco-Conscious Inspiration
Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, we select a topic and handful of blogs that do a great job contributing to the conversation. This week’s roundup focuses on green living blogs. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tweet our writers at @BeyondBylines.
Are you trying to live greener? And no, we’re not talking about gardening (though it’s one of our favorite topics).
We’re talking about the desire to do better with sustainable living and being more eco-conscious. With Earth Day approaching (April 22), this topic is on our minds.
If greener living is one of your goals, this week’s blog roundup is for you. We’re looking at some green living blogs that will help you get there.
RecycleNation is a green-living focused site that helps “businesses, consumers, local, state, and federal government entities, as well as non-profit organizations enhance their sustainability and circular economy goals and initiatives.”
Its recycling location database contains more than 100,000 unique data points for over 50 different items, helping customers find the right place to recycle their items. Clearing out the house and spring cleaning? No problem. Have some extra shopping bags that you’d like to recycle? Got it.
