Green Tips for the Homeowner

You may or may not be surprised that little ol’ me had a passing interest in environmental issues before I started writing Green Manolo just a few short months ago. Green topics have actually come up pretty frequently at the other two blogs I author: Manolo for the Home and Manolo for the Brides.

I have been tempted to rehash topics I’ve covered at those blogs of mine, but then I thought that wouldn’t make a lot of sense. The content and, when appropriate, gorgeous images are already there, waiting for your eco-friendly eyes! So here’s a list of links in case you’re looking specifically for environmentally conscious housing:

Green Tips for the Homeowner:


Manolo Goes Green? Oh, Yeah!

Green, green, green…

Who among us hasn’t experienced a little green fatigue? First it started with “paper or plastic” and “turn off the faucet when you brush your teeth.” Then it was programmable thermostats and composting. And now we have people telling us to eat organic… no, wait, local… or is that in season? All three? We’re supposed to figure out whether it’s better for the environment to upgrade to a new eco-friendly whatever or get a used one on Craigslist. And just how big is my carbon footprint, anyway?

The big problem with the green message? A lot of the time, it’s just no fun. And that’s why Manolo is going green! If there’s anything we all have a knack for around here, it’s making things fun! And why shouldn’t we all have a good time while we make friends with the eco-friendly and get environmentally conscious ourselves? There are so many gorgeous and green things out there to touch and taste and feel and smell and wear, and I want you to see it all.

Oh, I definitely plan to touch on the serious stuff, but I want Green Manolo to be the antidote to green fatigue, not just one more voice telling you how you’re making Mother Earth cry.

After all, we should all be doing what we can to keep the Earth healthy, but we still have to live here! Let’s live well!

P.S. – Have a green tip for me? Share!
