Friday Green Link List

August 15, 2008 by  

So Friday is here, and already half way gone. Great!

For those of you who are new to this blog, or maybe new to green blogs in general, I’d like to start a new tradition here at where every Friday, I post links to really good stories – whether they be inspiring, thought provoking, sad, happy, great, terrible, or whatever. That way you can get a full platter of what’s going on in the green world. Hope you enjoy these stories as much as I did!

1. Yale Grad Student’s Off Grid Tiny House – This was a really cool article about a Yale Grad student who decided to take action and instead of blowing all her money on regular housing, spent it on something better.

2. Green Singles Dating Site – Are you looking for that special someone? Maybe you’ll only date eco-friendly people, maybe only vegetarians…whatever the case, I’m sure you’ll find them on If you go green in no other way this year, at least date someone who is!

3. Jatropha Plant To Power Tractors – There are quite a few other countries out there that are growing millions of acres of Jatropha – which is a plant that produces perfect diesel fuel that can power any diesel engine without any processing whatsoever. Why aren’t we doing this, people!??!?

4. Find Out Your Solar Potential – This may be the coolest site I’ve seen yet. Ever wondered just how much money a solar paneled roof would save your family? Have you ever wondered if it was viable to even think about setting up solar panels? Well, with this amazing site that uses Google maps to the extreme, you can find out for free.

5. Adopt An Acre – Do something nice with that extra bit of cash you may¬† have laying around. Head over to (a trusted site), and check out their “Adopt and Acre” program. There are many different types of land to choose from in many different countries. So it doesn’t matter if you like mountains, or if you’re more of a rain forest person, there are plenty of opportunities to help out :)
