Happy weekend my friends! I had every intention of getting this post up a few weeks ago but I wanted to make sure I had some great links to share with you. This is my first “Weekend Reading” post and I plan to share at least one of these posts each month filled with great articles and blog posts related to sustainability. If there are any specific topics you want to learn more about I would love to hear your feedback. And, of course, if you have any links you think would be helpful for me to share you can email them to me (24carrotlife [at] gmail.com), tweet them at me, or post them on my Facebook page!
