A Brief Blog Profile: The Greenists
by Thomas Hynes
The Greenists are a collection of writers looking to find the right balance of an environmentally-conscious modern life. Their aim is to help readers make green decisions with regards to their pets, their homes, their food and their cosmetics. They want us to consider a product's origins, where it'll end up, its impact. These choices shouldn't be taken lightly. The Greenists are here to ensure we weigh all the factors before purchasing. They're here to help us know the true costs.
For instance, they'll go so far as to tell us the 5 ways we can recycle our underwear. I didn't know you could recycle underwear one way, let alone five! But you can. You can also stay green in the snow. You can even put sweet potatoes in a burrito as part of Meatless Mondays. There's very little 'can't' on The Greenists. And that's probably what I love most about it.
There's also just a lot of valuable information on here, too. You can learn how to compost, the value of conserving water and the benefits of hemp. There's actually a tip of the day feature. They want to help. They want to make us the greenest we can be. And with a blog like this, and a little creativity, we can change our habits. We can change the way we consume. And ideally, we can change the way we affect our ecosystem
