Green Blogs I Can Recommend
This time I choose not to bore you with my uninformed musings on a green topic. I am not an environmental activist or green blogger myself. Instead I’d rather tell you where to go to read what’s going on.
Check out these green blogs I can truly recommend for a better future.
I’m a reader of some of those for years now, others I discovered just recently via DuckDuckGo, other lists or simply clicking though links.
Here is the list featuring some of the most important and well known blogs dealing with ecology and a sustainable lifestyle but also very good blogs far too few people know:
- Jetson Green
- Gas 2
While TreeHugger deals with life style and products it has the biggest impact as far I can judge it, it’s all about green cool now since Treehugger appeared in the blogosphere.
Inhabitat is similar, focuses a bit more on architecture and prefab houses for example.
MNN or the Mother Nature Network is of course much more than a blog but offers nonetheless a steady steam of log-like news coverage.
Grist is also rather a magazine than just a blog but what is a blog these days anyway? In any case Grist offer high quality coverage of environmental issues.
Planetsave and Sustainablog are more blog-like and focus on the most important aspects of sustainability, saving the planet, not just consuming a greener way. Here you can still find the spirit of activism.
The other blogs focus on more specific topics. CleanTechnica covers environmentally-friendly technology as already the name suggest. Jetson Green specializes in green architecture. AutoblogGreen and Gas 2 report on the latest electric cars and other alternative propulsion methods.
In case you are a green blogger or need support for a campaign you can contact me.
I can at least bring you some visitors via social media. I have a considerable following here and there. I have already worked for the Swiss solar energy federation among others.
In case you work for a non profit organization like Greenpeace you might want to talk to me or follow one of these SEO for non-profits links.
Update: as most of these publications are from the US and often run by professional publishers I decided to create a list of local and mostly activist run green blogs from the United Kingdom.
Last updated: August 17th, 2016: added my favorites from the UK. July 19th, 2015, removed inactive blogs and click-baity headline-elements. Added other blogs and eye-catcher image.
