Just ran across this great infographic on bicycling facts and the future of bicycling on our sister site sustainablog and, of course, wanted to share it on here. It’s the feature green living “story” of the day. The infographic is from our friends over at Well Home Energy Audit. Check it out and enjoy!
Check out this fun Dutch bicycling federation video I just ran across on Copenhagenize. Nice.
Solar power is growing at a super fast pace these days, and despite (or maybe partly because of) the tremendous economic problems the country is facing, that is continuing. Solar PV is projected to double in the US this year, and is expected to grow 47% a year up to 2015.
Full disclosure: Heather is a friend of mine from college. We recently reconnected (on Facebook, of course) and she mentioned this sweet project she’s trying to get funded. Immediately, I though, “Wow, that’s an awesome project and a great fit for Planetsave!” So, here’s more on the project, via Kickstarter (where you can go to help fund it).

Also, I guess it is because I am trying to stress green living more and more these days.
This is totally awesome. The ridiculousness of this guy getting a ticket for not riding in the bike lane is made obvious when he decides to then ALWAYS ride in the bike lane, film it, and show the world who should really be getting the tickets.
Other than the 50+ stories we covered in the past week, here are 15 more green stories I thought were worth a share:
Hello Planetsavers! I thought I’d start doing a monthly wrap-up of our top 20 posts for people to have a glance at. Many of the top stories this month, as you’ll notice, were clearly tied into major world news events. Google is the main traffic driver for the large majority of sites on the Internet and ours isn’t an exception.

Here’s a totally awesome new vertical bike storage design I ran across this weekend. Green in more ways than one.
