Green news for April

So it feels like I've been gone for ages! Either that, or April is an exciting month with a ton of news and great new (or new-to-me) green sites. Let me catch you up to date:

Delight's 22 Days of Eco Fabulous Items: Ever heard of Delight? Back when they were just a a blog, I use to adore their well edited finds. Now, they're a perfectly selected item-of-the-day shopping stop, with a fantastic focus on eco friendly finds. In celebration of Earth Day, they've got 22 days of eco friendly items, plus are donating one tree for every single order made on Delight for the month of April. You know what's extra cool? Mention you heard about Delight on Chartreuse Chic, and they'll match that donation with a second tree!

National T-Shirt Recycling Program: Got some old tees you keep forgetting to donate? Lusting over some Loomstate for Barneys that you can't quite afford? Barneys, Loomstate and the Sundance Channel have got the promotion for you -- from April 13th through 27th, drop off your old tees at any Barneys nationwide and receive 20% off both men's and women's Loomstate for Barneys. Why cash for rags, you may wonder? Loomstate is collecting your old tees to be "re-Fashioned" into Loomstate for Barneys Green Holiday 2008 Collection. And if the discount (and the prospect of seeing your used clothing transition from potential dishrag to potential trend setter) weren't enough to get to pawing through your unused clothing, proceeds from the program will benefit 1% for the Planet.

Another site is www.freefroot.com. It's a carefully curated giveaway site promoting designers and local businesses who are committed to sustainable design and organic products. Newly launched, Freefroot conveys 100% of their merchant fees to Kiva.org.
So in effect, local entrepreneurs are supporting entrepreneurs half a world away.
