Around The Greenosphere: Weekly Link Roundup

It’s’s 10th anniversary, and to celebrate they are giving away free eBooks throughout the month of October. Two titles by Tom Turner are currently available for free download: 24 Historic Styles of Garden Design and The Principles of Garden Design.

Over at Sunnybrook Farm Designs, Rebekah has an interesting post about how to re-purpose old t-shirts into reusable eco-friendly shopping bags. A creative and green alternative to simply tossing your old t-shirts!

Just in time for traditional Fall festivities on October 31st, Ecologue has a post with some great ideas for going green for Halloween, including tips on how to get the most out of pumpkin carving, and how to fashion a one-of-a-kind eco-goodie bag for trick or treating.

On Nov. 4th Vote the Environment with Patagonia, and while you’re doing that check out their helpful resources and links to discovering how green your candidate is and what you can do to help, including recommended reading. Patagonia is also featuring a Vote the Environment t-shirt, with $5 going to the League of Conservation Voters, a national, nonpartisan, nonprofit group who “works to elect pro-environmental champions at all levels of government.”

    Thank you for featuring my repurposed shopping bag post!

    The eco-goodie bag is a great idea… my kids have plenty of totes hanging around to use, no need to use plastic bags.
