Here’s a selection of blogs (and posts) that I like:
http://www.raptitude.com A blog about trying to be better humans (this blog rings a chord with me – perhaps it is what Greenleftyidealist might be like in part when it ‘grows up’)
www.settlepetal.org.au A new online space for feminists around Australia
http://isismade.blogspot.com/ find out about the ethical fashion pledge and great discussion and links for ethical fashion options
http://theuniformprojectblog.com/ a great project which started out as Sheena wearing one dress with thrifted accessories for one year to raise funds for children in India to be schooled. There is now a series of spinoff fundraisers with different wearers/dresses/charities for 1 month at a time.
