I am pleased and honored to be hosting the 100th Carnival of the Green. 100? Really? How times flies! That is quite an achievement…100 weeks of Green-ness! Without further ado, here are the articles that were submitted and that made it into the Carnival this week. We got an unusually high amount of submissions this week, probably because it was the 100th Carnival, so if you participated, please make sure to link to the Carnival from your site so that your readers will have a chance to check out all the other posts!

My five personal favorites from this week’s submissions are:

Sending things back… posted at Fake Plastic Fish. This post is about sending it back. And no, I’m not talking about that mean thing that sport fishermen do. I’m referring to unwanted plastic that shows up my my doorstep unsolicited. I’ve decided that in addition to e-mailing or sending a letter to the company, I’m just going to ship it right back to them!

The Simple Secret to Making a Greener World posted at Lighter Footstep. The era of single-occupant, six thousand pound vehicles is over. So is the expectation of limitless fresh water, productive farmland, and the energy to bring food and goods to market if we continue to apply yesterday’s solutions to contemporary problems.

Greenest School in the World is a Renovation! posted at Jetson Green. The Sidwell Friends School is the first LEED Platinum-rated K-12 school in the world, but what’s incredible is the story behind it. First, it’s a renovation of a fifty year old facility. Second, the renovation involved the students, so everyone was able to participate and learn about the benefits of a green building.

Milk Money posted at Mindful Momma. Where does your milk dollar go? Do you buck up for organic? Go rBGH-free? Regular? Raw? Non/Low/Full-Fat? Heck, there’s even a brand that supports my kid’s school. WAY too many choices – for what should be one of the (few) simple buying decisions at the grocery.

6 Tips for eating locally in winter posted at Sustainable Food Blog. Just like there’s a learning curve to eating locally, there’s another curve for learning to eat locally in the winter. It’s not much harder, but requires a different knowledge base. Here are some tips to get you started with local winter food.

And here are the rest of the submissions, no less great than the first five!
