NEWS: Carnival of the Green #33
My weekly quick link to the Carnival of the Green which is located today at Jen's Green Journal
My pick of the week is a tough one this time round as so much has inspired me so my picks of the week include the very thought-provoking posts by Carnival Host Jen and Jeffrey Strain over at Personal Finance Advice on walking in suburbs and how discouraged it seems to be even at the planning level. Surely if cities were planned for more walking people would walk more? So why is this not the case? Why are cities not planned with walking in mind? Perhaps projects like Arcosanti (submitted by Interesting thing of the Day in this weeks carnival) should be encouraged and better supported?
Also a quick shout to the post from The Greener Side about how Craigslist encourages sustainable recycling etc of items we no longer want in a kinda freecycle way. Very good point...gets me thinking about some ideas...so for that they get a mention.
More info about the Carnival of the Green re hosting (now booked up into Feb 07) and posting available here.
