Fall carnival season

The fall APLS carnival schedule is now up!

Please note that all submissions are due to the blog host by the 15th of the month. The carnival will be posted a few days later.

September: When does size matter?

I read a lot of blogs about families and I occasionally find myself thinking "Sure, that's easy to do if there are 4 of you". For example, I can't maintain a worm bin since I just don't have enough food waste for them to live off of. Other times I will tell someone about a green change I made and they think (or even say!) "Sure, that's easy to do if there's only one of you". Such as when I describe line drying laundry in my laundry room. So, what efforts that you make are easier to do because of your household size? Which are harder and make you wish there were a better way?

October: Greening your Halloween
Kellie at Greenhab is planning a fall-themed carnival. Look for additional details soon!

November: Lessons learned from sustainability

What have your efforts to live a more sustainable life taught you about yourself? Have you been able to change a behavior you initially thought you could not? What has surprised you about your own capacity in your efforts to live more sustainably?

We're looking for hosts and topics for our winter season. Interested? E-mail me at
