Come Visit Our Parent Site!

Come check out our parent site, Dude, Sustainable! At Dude, Sustainable! we blog about the environment, global warming and sustainable living practices at home, on the road and wherever you may go! We believe sustainability is the most important issue human beings will confront in the 21st century? Why? For at least 300 years, since the dawn of the industrial revolution, human beings have increasingly lived beyond their means, using more resources than we can afford and pushing more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. The result, undeniable climate change that threatens us all. A changing climate isn't going to kill us all, but it will radically disrupt our lives and our wallets. Billions of dollars lost due to rising sea levels and changing agrarian patterns, and potentially billions of lives lost to the massive disruptions we face. Can we afford this? Absolutely not. But there are ways that you can help! Come visit Dude, Sustainable! and see some of our trending topics. They include: Green Living and Green living blogs. We aim to be a resource for green bloggers everywhere, connecting information and social profiles to help spread the message. We're a node in a growing social network!



  • Build Your Own Greenhouse in a few easy steps. One of the first steps towards sustainability is paying attention to your foods' supply chain. Where does it come from? With greenhouse gardening, you can ensure that your food is coming from a safe and organic source, and you can encourage others to do the same!
  • Strawberry! A recent NPR story about reviving the heirloom strawberry (which no-one in the world really knows about) piqued our interest, and it's been a springboard to greater discussions about sustainability and heirloom gardening.
