Sending out the love to some assorted websites that I’ve ‘bookmarked’ in the past few months. In no particular order:
Healthy Vegan Homemade – a great place to find out how to make simple, home-made cleaning products and beauty products (like laundry detergent, hand soap, chapstick) which don’t contain preservatives or any harsh chemicals, aren’t packaged to hell, and are vegan.
Vegan & Vegetarian Blog Tracker – a reasonably interesting selection of vegan bloggers, hopefully you can find what interests you from the selection of recent posts
Natural History Society of Newfoundland and Labrador – wildlife and nature appreciation in Canada’s most easternmost provinces
Alternative Vegan – Dino Sarma, a lovely vegan blogger and cookbook author, offering a cookbook “based solely on produce. You don’t have to buy expensive, fancy, hard-to-find ingredients to be vegan; the most interesting and tasty vegan food is just produce! Learn how to remove the fear from the kitchen, and do things on your own terms, just the way you like it!”
Take a Bite out of Climate Change – Anna Lappé continuing in the footsteps of the celebrated Frances Moore Lappé, who wrote Diet for a Small Planet in 1971; Anna’s new book is called Diet for a Hot Planet and seems focused squarely on food production and especially animal agribusiness’ contributions to greenhouse gas emissions.
INCITE! Women of Color Against Violence blog – this one’s going on my blogroll when I have a chance. A “national activist organization of radical feminists of color”.
COGS Circle of Gifts voluntary currency – re-vitalizing local communities by uniting citizens in a local trading system that capitalizes on each person’s skills, not their dollars
Seva Foundation: Compassion in Action – they provide cataract surgery and eye care to people in Asia and Africa who suffer from preventable, and reversible, blindness
Responsible Policies for Animals – see the “Wildlife” section for compelling literature on human-animal urban conflicts, the problem with urban deer-kills and hunting, and how to effectively manage conflict by changing our human practices (especially landscaping)
grow peace and dance in the garden – a lovely vegan-organic gardener in Zone 6b
Vegan Montreal – a resource guide – last updated 2005, hopefully still useful
vegan germs – a blog that only ran for two months but has some gorgeous photos and recipe ideas
slow growing – beautiful mandala-type art and other randomness
I have so many more links to share, including some new blogging friends! next time, next time …
