5 Fun Links From My Mailbox

Imgp0318_pie When I get an e-mail I find interesting I pop it into an Outlook folder to get back to later. Like this photo of a pie students made while on a CBF Student Leadership Trip this summer.

Everyone likes lists, so here are five items that made it into my folder recently.

1.If you're a coffee fiend like me and don't compost (shh, I won't tell anyone), GreenUpgrader has some ideas for recycling those coffee grounds. The picture's a hoot!

2. Want to line up some eco-friendly shopping for the holidays? PlanetGreen takes a look at Target.

3. If you like lists you'll love WebEcoist. A newcomer to the green Web, they've put together a four-part series on Your Great Guide to the Green Web. The series includes green blogs, green tools (the Web kind not the gardening kind), social media sites, and environmental organizations. (I'm not sure why we didn't make it into the last one but I guess I won't hold it against them.)

4. Columbus Day is coming up and the National Wildlife Federation has a great idea for how to spend it. Go to www.maketracks.org and register for the Make Tracks! Family Trail Weekend. Enter your zip code into the NatureFind tool to find a trail or walking path near you.

5. Did you know the EPA has a widgets Web page? Its latest addition is "Find Your Watershed." If anyone knows how to add it to a Typepad blog, let me know.

Have any interesting sites you'd like to share?
