Mrs Green’s stories

meditatingIt’s time for my roundup of some of the world’s green stories.

All of the stories chosen will help you go greener in some way – perhaps you’ll learn how to reuse something, reduce your carbon footprint, simplify your life or take care of your health, naturally.

More minimal

Do you yearn for a simpler, greener, healthier life?

There is a new facebook page called More Minimal. Run by Chris Baskind, author of the More Minimal blog, you’ll be able to connect with other people who are striving for a more meaningful way of life.

If you’re not on Facebook, then read Chris’s blog for inspiration.

Have a productive, stress free day

I’ve discovered lots of wonderful new sites recently. Life Change starts now is one of them.

Catherine, author of the blog shared tips for us to get a productive, stress free day the other week.

It includes list writing; one of my personal favourites! But she goes on to use those lists at the end of the day to reflect on the productiveness of your day and how it made you feel.

I’ve been using it for a couple of weeks now and it works for me! Read “Two ways to accomplish daily tasks, have a productive day and be stressless.

Freecycle alternatives

If you’re looking for another way to keep stuff from the landfill and give and get stuff for free, then this is for you!

Many people are falling out with Freecycle; the system is old fashioned and it sends heaps of mails to your inbox.

The Guardian have come up with “10 alternatives to Freecycle” so you can continue to do your bit for the environment.
