Are you also sometimes overwhelmed with all the trade magazines, videos and newsletters available online? I often think it takes an incredible amount of time to stay up-to-date on all of the issues and projects occurring in the environmental world. However, I always try to keep myself updated with the latest developments by reading articles while I’m traveling. And in order to save you some time, I would like to share a collection of my recommended links:
Maybe we could also use this as an opportunity for mutual exchange? So, if you know of interesting articles related to the topic of environmental management, please let me know!

The online magazine Grist is a good source of fun-to-read news and features blogs, comment sections and interviews related to everything “green”. Although it is based in the US, many of the subjects and characters are also familiar to other parts of this world. One recent article that I found interesting was: “How California got way ahead of the rest of the world in fighting climate change.”
Another site I really like is Planet Ark. This organization launched in 1991 and their website followed six years later. The article that I would like to share from Planet Ark is called, “Four Eyes for Recycling.” It highlights a few ways that recycling, donating, and optometry can all work together.
When being in the “green” business, you can’t get around the TreeHugger, which is the leading media outlet dedicated to driving sustainability. They are a great source for green news, solutions, and product information. This article really caught my eye: “This Berlin supermarket has a vertical micro-farm inside it.”
Yale Environment 360 is a publication of the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies and offers news on the impacts of climate change, renewable energy, budding green technologies, fossil fuels, mining and other environmental issues. Very interesting reading! For example, check out this article: “New Green Challenge: How to Grow More Food on Less Land.”
