Ideal Bite: A Sassier Shade of Green

Help take a bite out of global warming with Ideal Bite, an eco-living email newsletter. I truly appreciate the daily bite-sized tips I find in my e-mail in box everyday. So much so that my friends at Ideal Bite decided to sponsor a post here so I could tell you more about what they do.

Basically, all you have to do is sign up for their e-mail newsletter and receive easily digestible and practical tips for making your life a bit more green. The ladies behind the newsletter are hardly eco-perfect themselves, but we do get to benefit from their experiences as they work on greening their daily lives. It is this wonderful mix of "incremental environmentalism" and keep it real attitude that inspires tiny steps towards creating a smaller carbon footprint of your own. You can also create your own personalized library of tips, kind of like keeping an electronic recipe file, but this is a recipe for green living.

Looking for ways to be green in your local scene? With Local Bites you can get city-specific tips for NYC (sign up here) and San Francisco (sign up here – you know I have) with Chicago, LA, Seattle and Denver editions coming soon. Think globally. Act locally.

If you find going green intimidating, this is the site for you. With tips doled out in bite sized chunks, you don't need to worry about biting off more than you can chew.

nice! They've got an RSS version, too, which is sooooooo much more convenient for me than email.

Another one to add to my daily list of newsletters. I can't wait for the Seattle one to launch.

Okay this is weird - I know someone who works at that site, and when he came down to visit a few weeks ago, I recommended "Geek Sugar" to him so he could tell his diva geek boss there. CRAZY!

i have been getting their tips too but don't read them anymore because they are just so...duh! well, for me anyway. i guess its nice to get their message out though. i just find the whole "free" thing weird. why on earth would anyone pay for eco-friendly tips? its all very odd.
