Sustainability References

Great sustainability related blogs and what I thought:




  • "The Green Workplace" has a lot of info on green products. It is written by a women who writes from her perspective and gives honest options. She has a lot on insight into the world of sustainability because she does so much research for her blog. The search feature is helpful if you are looking for a specific product or topic. 


Here is a link to a post on sustainable office furniture I found helpful with the beginning development of a studio 6 project:

The author actually wrote book you can get on amazon for about $15.

    "Inhabitat" has diverse information that includes many facets of design. Fashion, art, interior, and exterior designs. I like that it has corky designs for around the world; many of which are made from recycled materials. 
    Here are some photos from the site I really liked:

      • "Metro Hippie" might have a sort of obnoxious name, but it is a great blog. They have their subjects arranged in a user friendly way. (food, fashion, voice, design, architecture, ect.)
