Its about time I spread more love in the blogosphere!

Ever since I found out about the  Pacific Gyre Plastic Trash Island, it frightens me every time see photos or graphs of it. This is a “trash island”  located in the Pacific that’s twice the size of Texas and 30 feet deep.  The Chic Ecologist goes in to how this happened, the problems that its causing and possible clean-up solutions.

Are You More Frugal or Green?: Balancing Multiple Goals Which camp do you fall into?  Tyler goes into the trap of being too frugal or cheap at the risk of neglecting green-oriented goals.  He also states that  “…as noble as it may seem to shirk financial gain in favor of saving the world at all cost (forgive the pun), how many people can really sustain such a life?” The question is, how can you strike a balance?

Mountains of the Moon Giveaway by Green Grechen is another fabulous eco-fashion blog giveaway. The contest ends June 28th so hurry!

Inspiring Vertical Gardens for Small Spaces I am a huge fan of unconventional gardens and growing wherever you can.  This post gives you an idea of where and how you can have a garden when you have very little space to work with.

    Thanks so much for the link. I had never heard about the trash island before. That is truly frightening and sending me on a new research frenzy. Do I really want to know more? *Shudders*
