Resources to help you start living eco-friendly

It’s been about two weeks since I started my green living journey. What I have done so far: bought a bottle of organic wine from Cost-co.

Actually, I’ve been spending a lot of time reading about eco-friendly living and figuring out how to get started. I’m a newbie to all of this and it’s *quite* the lifestyle change for someone who eats McDonalds multiple times a week.

The good news: there are smart people out there who have already figured this green living thing out. I have compiled a list of my favorite bloggers and websites so far — if you are also just getting started or looking for more information, this is a good place to start!
