FEATURE: Carnival of the Green

Carnival of the GreenUPDATE: Now that CityHippy is not being updated the Carnival of the Green is being managed by Treehugger. For all carnival info and to see the schedule please click here.

City Hippy & TriplePundit are delighted to announce the launch of the Carnival of the Green.

The Carnival of the Green will travel from blog to blog on a weekly basis, like a real carnival. Inspiration came from the Carnival of the Capitalists.

Each week, on mondays, a green blog will host the Carnival of the Green and will provide, in one single and probably large post, a digest of the posts other green bloggers have submitted for consideration during the previous week (friday to friday).

Each Carnival of the Green will also have a link to the previous and next Carnival of the Green hosts as well as a link back to this Launch post (either on City Hippy or Triple Pundit or both if you like).

To submit a post for consideration to the Carnival of the Green (do not submit content - just a link to your post), please email (Subject: Carnival of the Green submission) with the following info:

Post Summary

This carnival is a summary, a digest, of the green blogosphere. When we say green we mean sustainability issues etc as opposed to plain old general Green Politics. Each host has the right to include whatever they wish, whatever they feel is worthy of being in the carnival.

To add yourself to the list of Carnival of the Green hosts please email one of us at or

As host you will receive, just for your friday to friday week, all email sent to the email address.

It is upto to you to make the Carnival of the Green happen each week. Do whatever you should be fun not stressful!

Wow! this is a great idea. I am definitely going to follow the carnival of the green now. I am still starting out as a blogger and would like to host the carnival someday maybe next year.

I have noticed that group activities like this (and most recently the starbucks challenge) really attract a lot of attention to the issues. Congrats for starting this activity and good wishes for its success.

A big namaste to you too.

Hey Sameer

Thanks mate...keep us posted! Hosting will be quite sure you will do just fine when you take your turn!

There is strength in numbers...collaborations online are extremely powerful I believe.

How cool is this idea?!

I'll be sending some post links for your consideration. Hope breast health is a suitable topic for the Green Carnival.

This is an innovative idea. Such activities will really boost the blogging activities of bloggers. Personally, I think should be frequently done to promote better interaction among bloggers.

I'm interested in joining the Carnival of Green. I'll send an email.

Our site is all about alternative green products and info.. Green is becoming more and more important.

This is a great idea. Thanks!!
