We’d like to thank everyone for all of the great submissions and congratulate our contributors who have their articles featured below!
Wesley presents High Cost of Oil Impacting Steel Imports and Production posted at EnviroHumanImpact, saying, “We examined the impact that the high price of oil is having on the steel industry including a booming United States domestic steel industry.”
Melinda presents Will Americans Ever Bicycle Like The Rest Of The World? posted at One Green Generation. This is an interesting question and challenge to the U.S. Melinda points out pictures from various countries around the world suggesting their use of bicycles in everyday life is leaps and bounds beyond that of the United States.
Kate Jones presents Green & clean « Om Shanti Handcrafts posted at Om Shanti Handcrafts, saying, “About how I do what I can to keep my business green.” While Kate primarily highlights how they are trying to keep their own business green, this is a great inspirational piece for someone looking for encouragement and ideas of how to make their own small business greener!
Katrina Cain presents Burning Candles Can Cause Indoor Air Pollution posted at Were You Wondering…. I may have saved the best for last. Katrina sends us an exceptionally interesting and detailed article on the environmental and health consequences of burning candles in the home.
