check it out...

There's a cool site for all of you who enjoy reading the green sites...it's Alltop - it's like one big giant aggregator of a whole bunch of different green sites (and actually, they have lots of other topics too!).

You'll probably see some of your old favorites there, and you may even stumble upon a new gem or two.

Another great website to check out is WalkScore - it'll give you a score on how "walkable" your current or potential neighborhood is - just enter the address and it'll give you a map with results of all the different things that are within walking distance. It's a great tool to scope out a new neighborhood if you're considering a move in the near future, and it's also a neat way to find some hidden gems if, like me, you're still relatively new to the area you live in. One more way to help reduce car use and energy consumption!

I'm new to your blog and just wanted to mention how much I like your list at the bottom of your blog of changes you're making, ones you've accomplished, and longer-term goals. I find it inspiring and real.

My neighborhood registered as a 31. What a cool tool!

kathryn, I'm so glad you like the list! It's a good way to keep myself encouraged and accountable!

rapunzel, so glad you like them! :)

nadine, isn't it neat? 31...you must not be able to walk to many things at all! hopefully it's at least more bike friendly!
