Small Footprint Fridays #23 – A Sustainable Living Link-Up!

Small Footprint Fridays #23 – A Sustainable Living Link-Up!

Welcome back to another Small Footprint Friday—a blog link-up party about sustainable living. Every Friday, we come together to support and encourage each other in living greener, healthier more sustainable lives.

By joining together and sharing our wisdom, we can turn the tide on our health and environmental crises, and create a better world for our children and grandchildren.

There are so many things we can learn from each other, like how to:

  • save energy, water, trees, gas, and other resources;
  • grow, preserve and store food;
  • avoid toxins and heal ourselves naturally;
  • make our own necessities;
  • reduce our consumption, recycle our waste, and reuse what we have;
  • redefine what makes life meaningfulprosperous and abundant
What could be more inspiring? So, let’s have some fun!

How It Works

1.  Share your posts that relate to “green” or sustainable living. There are some ideas above, but feel free to post anything related to keeping your family’s resource footprint small and sustainable. Posts from your archives are OK. Please enter the title and link to your POST (not your home page) in the Linky below.

2.  In your post, please place a link back to THIS Small Footprint Fridays post (NOT to the home page). Linking back directly to this week’s link-up page helps build our community by sending your readers to all of the other posts shared.

Simply make a link at the end of your post that says something like, “Posted at Small Footprint Fridays” or right-click and save the badge below and use it to link back to this page. I reserve the right to delete those links that don’t adhere to this.

3.  I’ll post the Small Footprint Fridays Link-Up on Thursday night around 8 p.m. (PST). Please come and join up then!

4.  Please leave a comment, and help our sustainable living community grow by sharing Small Footprint Fridays with your friends on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest! Plus, doing so will help your post get more visitors.

5.  Most importantly, be sure to visit a few of the links that interest you. Learning from and encouraging each other is what this is all about, after all!

What Can’t I Post?

NO RECIPES, PLEASE, unless they are for food preservation or storage. There are tons of recipe link-ups out there. Small Footprint Fridays has a different focus. :)

Also, we want these links to be valuable to readers months—or even years—from now, so please don’t post giveaways, link-ups, Etsy shops or affiliate promotions.

I hate using the delete button; so please don’t make me. :)

Now It’s Your Turn…

I can’t wait to see what you have to share!!

  1. Thank you for hosting Dawn!

    I’m sharing 2 posts:

    1. Toxic Free DIY Mini Series: Sugar Scrub — a recipe for an easy, affordable sugar scrub to use as an exfoliant to ensure radiant looking skin!

    2. The Campaign for GE-Free Seafood — A new campaign has launched urging supermarkets, seafood companies, chefs and restaurants all over the country to sign a petition and publicly state they will NOT purchase or sell genetically engineered salmon. There is a petition to sign as a consumer as well!

  2. What’s the big deal with saturated fat? Why does “everyone” say it’s so bad for us? What does the research actually say? I shared my research on the topic and it’s an excellent read for anyone wondering why the real foodies are pushing saturated fat when the “experts” say otherwise.

  3. Thank you so much for hosting! I recently found your blog and I just love it. I shared some resources for grey water compatible laundry soap. We save all our laundry water and use it to water our gardens. Last year, in the middle of drought, the only water we used for our gardens was our laundry water. It was awesome! On my blog I share how we save laundry water, also.

  4. A happy Friday to you — This week’s post is Just a Dumb Housewife, which addresses general society’s feeling toward women who choose to stay home and care for their children. Fortunately, I think things are changing, as more women of a new generation decide that they and their families, not loud voices in the media, will make the decisions.

  5. Thanks for hosting Dawn! This week we’re working on thinking of things to improve in just 15 minutes in The Granny Plan. Drop by to join us for 12 weeks of real food mastery. Also, I’ve shared my favorite posts for March.

  6. Hi Dawn,
    Always such a pleasure to stop by, thanks once again for hosting!

  7. Thanks so much for hosting! Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  8. Thanks for hosting!
    I’m sharing about natural hair care which is much safer for us and better for the environment. I’m also sharing a post from my emergency preparedness series, and this time I cover natural alternatives to diabetes medication with tons of dietary advise as well.

  9. Thanks for hosting! Have a great weekend.
