blog: green as a thistle

I just realized that I haven’t told you about one of my all time favourite blogs!  It’s called Green as a Thistle and it’s written by a Vanessa Farquharson, a journalist for the National Post.  

Vanessa started the blog to chronicle the year she made a new change every day to greenify her life.  During that time she revamped her life in many ways, both big and small (from pledging to not buy any more Q-tips to unplugging her fridge), and wrote all about the victories and heartaches along the way.  There’s a blog posting for each of her tweaks and also a handy list of all 366 eco feats.  

Now Vanessa’s year of green is complete and she’s still sticking with a lot of her changes.  She has written a book and she’s continuing to find ways to reassess her daily life and see what else she can do to live a more earth-friendly existence.

      Nice to see you here Vanessa! No thistles yet, although I think they would be fun to photograph. I’ll have to keep my eyes peeled for one!
