Blogging for Positive Global Change Award

Marcia of Tumbled Words and MeeAugraphie has nominated me for the Blogging for Positive Global Change Award. You can read her post about the award here. I am very honoured and I was touched by what she said about me. Congratulations also to Marcia for being nominated herself.

The award was created by Deborah (site founder) and Francis, her regular contributor, at the site: Climate of Our Future. There is a more complete description of the award on their site, but in short they said: This award goes out to all of the Bloggers for Positive Global Change. It’s not limited to any specific ideologies, religions or philosophies. It puts a premium on human compassion and the desire to make the world a better place for all of us, without exception.

So I am honoured indeed! The participation rules are simple:
1. When you get tagged, write a post with links to up to 5 blogs that you think are trying to change the world in a positive way.

2. In your post, make sure you link back to this post so that people can easily find the exact origin of the meme.
3. Leave a comment or message for the bloggers you’re tagging, so they know they’re now part of the meme.
4. Optional: Proudly display the “Bloggers For Positive Global Change” award badge with a link to the post that you write up.

Now I get to pass the tag on to bloggers I feel are making a conscious difference. Given that the award originates from an environmental blog and given that this blog is environmental in focus, my nominees are all bloggers who I feel are working towards making a real difference to the environment:

Olympia Dumpster Divers was started in 2006 by Ruby Re-Usable to promote the appreciation of art from recycled, reused, discarded, unwanted, unloved, tossed and found, pre- and post- consumer waste materials. Her blog is colourful and full of ideas for creative re-use.

Deb Gorr of Bee Creative is not only a very creative artist often inspired by the natural world but she is blogging about her attempts to reduce her carbon emissions to 90% of the average, proving just how much we can all do if we try.

Jacquie of Wild Ink loves wilderness and is intrigued and inspired by the little things in the world that aren't always expected or supposed to be there: crows, coyotes, weeds, graffiti art. She has blogged on reuseable art and how to help save songbirds.

These are three bloggers really making a difference and they'd be delighted to have you visit them!
