The Intrigue of Green Roofs

By |August 24th, 2007|

Greenroofs

Pretty much everyone is talking about green roofs these days, so I thought I would round up a few of the good articles.  Just as a refresher, back in March, I wrote an article summarizing the costs and benefits of green roofing.  The benefits are numerous in comparison to the costs, but a green roof may not be right for every application.  I'll let you decide, but to get you thinking, here are some of the most thorough articles on green roofing that I've read and studied.  There's also some eye candy with each, too. 

Also, read other articles about projects involving green roofs in our archives.

JG Makes Lighter Footstep's 10 Green Blogs List

By |June 5th, 2007|

I just want to kick out a shout to the group over at Lighter Footstep that took time to look at the state of the green blogosphere and come up with a list of good green blogs to read.  With the blogosphere as large as it is, there’s always room for error in generating a list, but I think LF did a nice job.  Feel free to pop over and read about each one.  Importantly, the list goes beyond the big-time green blogs such as Treehugger, EcoGeek, AutoBlogGreen, and Inhabitat.  These are the leaders of green blogging.  Other than JG, I’ve included links to the other nine:

The Advent of "Green Options" + The Green Report (Updated)

By |February 6th, 2007|

Greenoptions

I’m going to keep this short, but as an FYI, the blogosphere is officially welcoming Green Options to the scene.  In full disclosure, I am a contributor to the site, so I have a modicum of bias as far as that’s concerned.  That said, I’m not so connected to anything to put myself in a position to not be honest.  If that makes sense.  Although Green Options is being heralded as new to the green scene, many of its contributors are old pros when it comes to the blogging world.  Here are a few heavy-hitters with their own blogs in parenthesis:  Jeff McIntire-Strasburg (Treehugger + Sustainablog), Michael d’Estries (GroovyGreen + Ecorazzi), Rebecca Carter (GreenerMiami + Ecorazzi), Shea Gunther (Musings of an Eco-Entrepreneur), Philip Proefrock (EcoGeek, contributor), and Amy Stodghill (It’s the Environment, Stupid). 

I like the simplicity of the site.  It’s clean and very easy to look at.  I really dig "The Green Report," not to be confused with the popular Drudge Report.  I can’t wait for The Green Report to get some big-time visits from the public, to watch news work its way around that page.  The Green Report is going to be like Hugg is to Digg.  If you know what I mean.  Nice job Shea + Jeff. 

Update (4/2/2007): In the interests of full disclosure, I thought I would mention that I’ve decided to no longer be a member of the Green Options blog team.
