Blogging a Greener World
Introduction

sustainablog started in July, 2003, as an experiment in “writing to learn”: author Jeff McIntire-Strasburg, then an assistant professor of English, decided to apply some of the concepts he preached to his students to his budding interest in sustainability. The rest, as they say, is history: sustainablog is now one of the longest-running green blogs on the web.

sustainablog has received mentions in the San FranciscoChronicle, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, the Sacramento News & ReviewReview of Policy Research, and on dozens of blogs and sites around the web.
