Who’d a thunk it?

thinkGreentime just tagged me with a Thinking Blogger Award (thanks guys!). The idea is that if you get
this, you should in turn write a post naming five other blogs that make you think, think, think.

But there are so many! Just look at my Blogroll — where do I begin?

*Sigh* Well, here goes nothing:

  1. EnviroWoman, the west coast to my east coast, my fellow Canadian girl, who’s spending one year living plastic-free. She’s totally hardcore, and yet knows the value of a great lipstick. I not only plan on stealing ideas from her, but getting inspiration whenever I stop and question what the heck I’m doing.
  2. Crunchy Chicken, who I’m tagging mostly because she has the coolest name for a blog ever, but also because she’s got everything from fun polls about toilet paper and Diva Cup challenges to a more serious-minded Omnivore’s Dilemma book club and other thought-provoking posts.
  3. The Healthy Cookie, because she’s been one of my bestest friends for 15 years and reminds me to be good to my body as well as the earth, and because she is relentlessly positive in this increasingly negative world.
  4. Confessions of a Closet Environmentalist must get a nod, as Alina is a bit of a kindred spirit. I was actually going to call my blog the Closet Environmentalist, because I’m all about the baby steps, and she backs me up in showing that not all tree-huggers are raging, dreadlocked eco-warriors.
  5. No Impact Man, despite being all famous and one-upping me in just about every way, is a constant source of motivation and encouragement, and proves that there really is no excuse for ignoring our ecological footprint. If he can turn off all his electricity, wash his hair with baking soda and vinegar, do his laundry in the bathtub, compost his own poop and not lose any friends in the process, the rest of us can at least try to switch to recycled paper towels or something.

But I also love all the others out there like Do You Realize? and Visualize Whirled Peas and Small Failures and Ideal Bite and, and, and… ARGH!

    Thanks for the mention… A list of five is definitely not enough. I consider every blog I list in my blogroll to be thought-provoking (otherwise, it wouldn’t be there!)

    Hi, congratulations!

    I’m in Australia where we still haven’t signed Kyoto & are way behind the rest of the world in acting on global warming but your site and all these other sites are so inspiring. I’ve now started one as a result of reading all yours – I’m doing one new personal action and one political action a day and calling it A Year In A Day

    good luck and thank you for being so inspirational

  6. Thanks so much! I finally got around to posting my list!
