Green Living Monday {News Wrap-Up}

I seem to eternally be searching for the best way to share every single green news story I think is important with you. But never seem satisfied or able to keep up with my systems. Maybe this one will last?…

The idea I’ve got now is to do a weekly link drop of stories we didn’t cover each day of the week, but with a different theme each day of the week. To start with, Monday will be “Green Living Monday” (as you can see above). Why? Who knows, that just sounded good to me :D. Also, I guess it is because I am trying to stress green living more and more these days.

So, here are top Green Living stories from the past week or so that I wasn’t able to cover in more depth. Check ’em out!

First, above all, I recommend watching the awesome video above. And the whole film can be watched at slackjaw.co.uk/consumed. Now, for all ‘green living goods’ I mention on here, I hope and try to only feature truly utilitarian goods, things people need (or which really help them in their life or in living a greener life). But, perhaps I’m just another sucker with this widespread mental illness as well.

The patent-pending Garden Sitter system is a self contained solar powered, programmable rain barrel irrigation system designed to ”babysit” your garden while you’re away, for weeks or even months at a time.  It makes use of a 5 watt solar panel mounted in a sturdy box constructed of North Carolina cypress, as well as  is a 7 amp charge controller and battery; LED lights offer the system’s charging status at a glance.
