The Carnival of All Things Eco is up at Focus Organic. As usual, there are tons of great ideas for green living that is also easy on the budget.
Jim at Blueprint for Financial Prosperity writes about how his town earns money by recycling, versus spending money to haul away trash. Think about that next time you’re tempted to just toss everything in the trash can.
Michelle from Organically Inclined has some great ideas for inexpensive gifts for children. I love the crayon idea (I remember melting down old crayon nubs in tuna fish cans and making candles as a child), and the felt board. With a five month old, I’m on the lookout for cheap projects that we can involve him in as he gets older, and these sound great.
I love this carnival, and look forward to it every week. Frugality and green living are both very important to me, and I love how so many of the submissions to the Eco carnival also encompass frugality.
