Green Moms Carnival: The Good News and The Bad News

August 10th, 2009

Well, the good news is that Beth of Fake Plastic Fish put up a special Green Moms Carnival today on Bottled Water.  It includes some interesting discussion about what transpired between Pepsi Cola and BlogHer’s Green Team. You can check it out here.

Now I was supposed to put up a carnival on Green Schools today too, for #ecomonday.

I’m so excited to say that I think it’s our biggest and best carnival yet, with nearly 30 submissions in these eight categories:

  1. At the Beginning: Green Childcare;
  2. Healthy Meals and How to Pack a Waste-Free Lunch;
  3. School Supply Lists and Eco-Friendly School Supplies;
  4. The Edible Schoolyard;
  5. Why It’s Worth Fighting to Keep Recess;
  6. Greening Your School: From Green Committees to Green Certification;
  7. Back to School: Homeschooling Edition; and
  8. Tips for College Kids Who Want to Go Green.

But I’m still not done with it, and a certain DH is encouraging me to call it a day. So I’ll leave you with Beth’s carnival and a promise to get our super – duper green schools carnival up tomorrow!

Inspired by Rocks in My Dryer, a super popular Mom blogger I admire, I’ve decided to take a Twitter and Bloggy break for the rest of the summer (the next three weeks). So after I post tomorrow, it will be quiet around here for a while.  I hope to  say that I’ve been in the pool more than once this summer after enjoying an extended cyber-break.

    Wow. I 3-week break? Aren’t you worried we’ll forget what you look like? :-)

    Have fun. I wish I had the guts to do it. And thanks for publicizing the Bottled Water carnival. Am looking forward to making some time to read all the Back to School posts.
