Share

An edible cookbook in seasonal produce books

  • This list of seven essential seasonal cookbooks makes sure you never run out of delicious ideas for summer’s garden bounty (Babble Family Kitchen).
  • Cool app:  The We Tap App for Android finds tap water wherever you are, mapping nearby public drinking water and allowing users to rate specific water fountains (via Green Thing).
  • Green points for NYC:  The Brooklyn Navy Yard is planning a green manufacturing center. The new Green Manufacturing Center, aided by a $46 million  investment from the Brooklyn Navy Yard with help from the New York State senate and the mayor’s office, will also create hundreds of new jobs (via Inhabitat).
  • Home and car sharing are helping to reduce more than travel costs: Aided by peer-to-per technology to facilitiate the hookup–with resources like Airbnb, for example–the rise of the sharing economy also cuts down on emissions. Regarding carbon emission, home sharing is 66% more effective than hotels ;  car sharing reduces individual emissions by 40% (Co.EXIST).
