Weekly Green Round-Up

Is there an Environmentally Friendly Form of Birth Control? by Dirty Diaper Laundry — Kim examines some popular methods of birth control to see if any of them can be called green.

What’s on My Food? — Holy poison potatoes, Batman! This site makes me 1) glad that we eat a lot of organic food and 2) upset that it can’t all be organic. I hope every person who has ever tried to argue with me about organic foods will look up their fave foods on this site. I promise I won’t gloat.

Remembering My Mom’s Lessons About Waste from No-Impact Man — We could learn a thing or two from the Japanese.

Pushing Your Way to Greener Grass : Environmentally-Friendly Reel Mowers from Crunchy Domestic Goddess — A closer look at the benefits of lawn mowers that run on people-power.  My husband totally wants one.

 The Revolution Will Not Be (Petrochemically) Fertilized by The Green Fork — Kerry sounds off about kitchen illiteracy and general ignorance about the food we eat and the possibility of an alternative food system.
