A Brief Blog Profile: EcoStreet
by Thomas Hynes
EcoStreet is a blog dedicated to helping its readers 'walk the walk' of green living. But the site is by no means a bully pulpit for the greener than thou among us. On the contrary, they 'strive to inspire simplicity and creativity.' Living green doesn't have to be about 'self-denial and abstinence.' The idea is that you can still live well. IAdditionally, the generations that follow can live well, too. It's not about sacrifice, necessarily. It's about sustainability.
On the blog, you'll find information on how to check the air pollution where you live with Google Maps as well as how to use electricity more efficiently. And there's also tips on how to make handmade recycled gifts for the holidays or this post on re-imagining uses for an empty soda can. Those soda can pieces are probably my favorite item from EcoStreet. But really, there's a lot to love about this site.
For instance, EcoStreet does a pretty great job of promoting other green blogs. Any blog that's 'environmentally-friendly' can join the directory for free. It's not just about their blog. It's about being green. They're pretty serious about that. They're walking the walk.
