We’ve featured the work of the designers at Esque before on GreatGreenGoods. We love the beautiful style, we love that the pieces are made from recycled materials, and we love that each piece is processed in an electric furnace that is powered by wind energy.

Soooo…… to start things off….we’ll look at the shopping posts…after all, this is a shopping blog and ’tis the season!!!
Jen’s Green Journal continues her series on environmentally friendly and/or fair trade gift giving. (great stuff!!) City Hippy chimes in as well with some green gift solutions just in time for the festivities!!
To wrap it up (hohoho!!) Dee’s ‘Dotes has a timely post titled: “Holidays, Consumerism and Stress”. It is a commentary on the holiday frenzy of consumerism and the stress associated with it. The post also includes links to where people can learn more about alternative gift giving.
TreeHuggerMum pipes in with a great post titled “Say No to Nuclear!” on the recent support of the British Prime Minister Tony Blair of nuclear power, listing the downfalls of nuclear power, and promoting renewables as the way forward for the sake of future generations.
A new blog is next and one we’ll all enjoy reading and getting to know, called Terry! …short for Terra of course! This weeks submitted post is titled A Sustainability F.A.Q. by Jennifer McQeen. Great stuff comparing and contrasting sustainability and environmentalism. The piece ends with: “The most important change a person can make now, is to turn thought and concern into action. From being a knowledgeable consumer to being a responsible producer and becoming involved in local, provincial and national government to both push and allow for changes. It’s pretty much time to turn off that ringing alarm clock. ” HERE HERE!!!
Now, here’s a post I’ll be paying attention to…living in Boston is awesome!! but it is cold and the heating bills hurt. Greenthinkers have a great bost on Winterizing your home in One Day!!” They recommend getting a professional to inspect your heating system every year. I think I’ve skipped that step the last couple of years!! Thanks greenthinkers for all the tips.
And keeping up the political theme, Enviropundit: Green Building Blog, has a great post on the apparent contradiction between China’s desire for sustainable growth and its actions.
That’s all for now, thanks everyone for letting me host this week’s Carnival of the Green. Next week, we’ll be at The Greener Side and a big thank you to Sustainablog for doing such a great job last week. This post is also linked to TLB’s Ubercarnival. And we’ll be back tomorrow with some great green goods for all your holiday shopping!!
