A New Green Earth has kind enough to mention Endangered Spaces blog.
My choices for the Bloggers for Positive Global Change Award are:
The Alternative Consumer
The Alternative Consumer reflects the needs of the next wave of smart consumers … savvy, style conscious shoppers who base their buying decisions on a set of criteria that goes well beyond just price and convenience. Before buying, we also consider a company’s core values, and the impact our purchases have on both the environment and our health.
Conserve Plastic Bags
This project has three primary aims: 1) Raise public awareness on the consumption of plastic bags, 2) Apply students' statistical training and knowledge to a real-world issue in our community, and 3) Instill a sense of personal responsibility that inspires behavioral, environmental, and economic changes.
I've made a promise to myself to try to be more environmentally conscious. This site is to help me keep track of the things I’ve learned and to share ideas. I’m a stay at home mom of two, a son and a daughter. I love being able to be at home and enjoy my family tremendously. However, I can’t help but be saddened by the waste in this world.
1) to go beyond recycling in trying to counteract the negative global environmental and socioeconomic impacts of U.S. consumer culture, to resist global corporatism, and to support local businesses, farms, etc. -- a step, we hope, inherits the revolutionary impulse of the Mayflower Compact; 2) to reduce clutter and waste in our homes (as in trash Compact-er); 3) to simplify our lives (as in Calm-pact)
Most importantly, by giving our children a "Green Hour" a day -- a bit of time for unstructured play and interaction with the natural world -- we can set them on the path toward physical, mental, and emotional well-being.

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.
