Blog Action Day - October 15, 2007

Filed Under: staying green

Today, October 15, 2007, thousands of blogs across the blogosphere will join together under the banner of environmental-friendliness for the inaugural Blog Action Day. Keeping with the idea of green-centric posting, DIY Life will be publishing several articles devoted to helping you help the environment in a do-it-yourself kind of way, which, in our opinion, is the best "kind of way" around.

    It's been about 3 1/2 months since Blog Action Day. It's hard to measure the impact, but I am seeing some of my friends in my industry blog more about "green" building materials.

    I might be an odd bird, but I am a Minneapolis real estate agent who thinks that people should consider building their homes out of dirt.

    Here's a post I wrote about the wonders of building with "cob." Please share it with your readers any way you wish. I would like to provoke some thinking about this idea.

    I praise it.
    And I support you.
