I’ve added some new links to the blog roll, and a new category, Projects – a listing of websites and blogs for green projects of all scales, some of which I cover with some frequency.

Green Building Blocks where you can learn about a wide range of green building products, find green professionals in your area and much more

Perfect City blog where they’re discussing the future of our cities.
