And now, without further adieu, may I present this week’s Carnival #167 ala Reclaimed Home…..

From Ancient Wisdom Modern Mind, Kerry ponders What affect do our Thoughts, have on Our Health, Our Relationship and Our Environment? Really interesting article.

C Richey writes about the Green Products Showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show on Las Vegas Realty. When I first saw it was from a Vegas RE firm, I thought they were trying to pass one over on us, but no, it’s a legit green article right outta Vegas, baby!

Dana from A Very Nearly Tea sends us Trash For My Garden. Unfortunately, my black thumb was all like “Wha?” But it’s a great article for anyone even THINKING of their garden.

Read up on Five Eco Ideas for Your Holidays. That’s vacation to us Americans. Mircea posted that one on Journey Etc. Gotta bookmark this.

Here’s one I like. Something for free! Dr. Joseph M. Peck, PhD fills us in one Free Tote Bags over at Eco Joe’s. Three different offers. And I here I am paying 99 cents!

Heather  from The Greenest Dollar does a nice review of three Green Wines. That means boxed, ladies and gents. Remember I got over that snobbery here a few months ago.

Speaking of overachievers, Peter of  We Overstep sent in not one, not two, but three submissions. The blog ain’t called “We Overstep” for nothing. There’s a Go Vegan post and a Raw Vegan article. He also posted some of his Ireland photos. Get it? Emerald Isle? Green?

Myscha Theriault sent us Green for Girls: A Feminine Perspective  posted at Wise Bread. Ok, this is a must read! You should’ve seen the wide eyed, jaw dropped look on my face as viewed the post. I consider myself an eco-conscious soul, but a menstrual collection cup? Sorry, I’m just not ready to go there yet.

People are complaining about all the little water bottles floating around, but what about the Brita filters? Huh? Well, Beth Terry of Fake Plastic Fish gives us the rundown with her Gimme 5, Brita, Preserve and You.

Ken Kneidel used an ecological footprint test to compare the benefit of driving a hybrid car to the benefit of a eating a vegan diet. Which one reduced his footprint more?  Read Less Meat Smaller Footprint from Veggie Revolution to find out!  It includes links so you can figure out your own.
