Mindful Momma

http://mindfulmomma.com

Hi! My name is Micaela and I’m a work-from-home Mom living in Minneapolis, MN with my husband and our two boys. I started this blog (way back in 2006!) as a way to help me make sense of all the confusing and sometimes scary information about green and healthy living that I was confronted with as a parent. It was part creative outlet and part educational platform….both with a steep learning curve!

Yellow+Blue

http://www.ybwines.com

With the high cost of fossil fuel driving up the cost of shipping, we saw the price of good
imported wines rising out of range for the average buyer. In our search for a way to lower these costs for quality-conscious wine drinkers, we found a solution that is also great for the environment. Then we got a little “greener” by partnering with organic wineries that use only traditional, natural winemaking processes.
The result? Great tasting, certified organic wine that’s better for the planet and
available at a great price.

HarvestGeek

http://www.harvestgeek.com

The core ideal which we believe at HarvestGeek is that the economics of large-scale industrial agriculture is not a sustainable proposition thus the need for efficient, tested and reproducible methods of small-scale food production. We'd like to see communities producing the bulk of their own food. The benefits to this we believe are many.
By empowering the local food movement, communities will benefit from new employment opportunities, money spent on food will stay in the community, fossil fuel use due to food transportation will drop off sharply, impoverished areas access to (healthy) food will increase, and we will be seeding a new generation with an appreciation for food, their health, and their connection to the Earth.

PARK(ing) Day

http://parkingday.org

PARK(ing) Day is a annual open-source global event where citizens, artists and activists collaborate to temporarily transform metered parking spaces into “PARK(ing)” spaces: temporary public places. The project began in 2005 when Rebar, a San Francisco art and design studio, converted a single metered parking space into a temporary public park in downtown San Francisco. Since 2005, PARK(ing) Day has evolved into a global movement, with organizations and individuals (operating independently of Rebar but following an established set of guidelines) creating new forms of temporary public space in urban contexts around the world.

ioby brings environmental projects to life, block by block. ioby connects people and money to site-based projects. All of these projects are conceived, designed, and run by neighbors—which ensures community buy-in, long-term caretakers and daily reminders of what’s been achieved.
