One of the greatest tools we have to help us go green is the Internet.
The web is chock full of websites that help us by providing information on actions to take and products so we can make strong consumer choices, getting free stuff (and thereby reducing and reusing), and connecting us to other like-minded people so we can help each other out.
We've gathered up a small handful of ways you can start using the Internet right now to green your life.
The Big Picture
Craigslist.org: An excellent way to get started in green living. This resource helps you get involved in local politics, find used goods to save money and give items second lifetimes, catching great local entertainment, and meet like-minded people to share tips and ideas with.
DoItYourself.com: Roll up your sleeves and get things done yourself, boosting confidence and saving money in the process. And, DIYing it is usually a great way to go green by conserving resources and repurposing items.
League of Women Voters: Staying informed on major issues surrounding politics, including climate change and environmental issues with a long-standing, credible, non-partisan resource (that isn't just for women!).
PetFinder: PetFinder is an online searchable database of pets that need homes. From your office chair, you can find and bring home the perfect pet. The website covers over 10,000 shelters from across the US, Canada and Mexico. By using it as an easy tool for finding your ideal pet, you help to relieve the burden on shelters and give sweet animals a second chance.
