This woman might just be crazier than me…

Hey everyone,

Yep, it’s me again. Resurrecting myself momentarily from the blogging graveyard, as I have some news for you — no, mom, I’m not pregnant. And no, I’m not starting another blog devoted to my eco-friendly wedding (although it’s coming together nicely, for those who may be wondering… we’ve got about 200 beeswax candles, have splurged on sustainably harvested fish and grass-fed, locally raised meat, sent out old vintage postcards as the invites and have antique mason jars for the centerpiece bouquets, to name a few things).

But what I really wanted to let everyone know about was this OTHER blog called Eco Mama. Now, before you groan and say, “Aren’t there enough green-mommy bloggers out there already?”, know this: Jennifer (the woman behind it) was inspired by Green as a Thistle and my book Sleeping Naked is Green and is now undertaking her own challenge to make an eco-friendly change to her life every day.

I can already hear your second groan: “Aren’t there enough bloggers out there copying your silly green-change-every-day gimmick?”

Perhaps. But what I especially like about Eco Mama is that: a) She gives me some credit in her inaugural post (thanks, Jen!); and b) The woman has three kids under the age of 8 and already practices many of the changes I made to my lifestyle, meaning that she not only has to put her husband and children through the green ringer but also has to come up with changes even I didn’t think of… AND, she’s doing a full 366 of them, despite the fact that it’s not even a leap year. Now that’s commitment (and also mild insanity).

Anyway, I wish her the best of luck and hope all of you lovely readers and fellow bloggers take her under your wing — the online green community is what kept me going during my challenge and I’m sure she’ll need just as much support. Check out Eco Mama here!

Yours greenly,
Thistle.

    I just finished your book – so great! So, I decided to go to your site (it took a while considering I would turn on the computer to do other things and forget to come visit here, but I made it!) An eco-friendly wedding sounds great. I plan to go check out Eco Mama’s blog right away before my small brain will forget.

    Hey everyone! I just wanted to share my great experience with this new app I just downloaded, Make Change Not Waste. It’s an app that tracks your green activities and rewards you with coupons to Whole Foods (or you can choose to donate the coupon money to charity). Just thought some of y’all might want to check it out :)

  6. Unquestionably imagine that that you said.
    Your favourite reason seemed to be on the internet
    the easiest thing to understand of. I say to you, I certainly get irked whilst other folks consider issues that
    they plainly don’t recognise about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as outlined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people can take a signal. Will probably be again to get more. Thank you

  7. My partner and I stumbled over here from a different web address and thought I should
    check things out. I like what I see so now i am following you.
    Look forward to looking into your web page repeatedly.

  8. Have you ever thought about writing an e-book or guest authoring
    on other blogs? I have a blog based upon on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to
    have you share some stories/information. I know my subscribers would appreciate your work.
    If you are even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.

  9. Heya i’m for the first time here. I found this board and I in finding
    It truly useful & it helped me out much.
    I am hoping to give one thing again and aid others such as
    you aided me.
