If you are just getting started learning about sustainability and the transition movement, here are some resources to help you learn more and local organizations where you can meet real people doing stuff in Minnesota. I’ve included some national groups and blogs. (If you would like your group listed here, send us an email at email@example.com, and we’ll check you out and add you to the list.)
Products That May Help You Stop Using Fossil Fuels
When I see products that I could use to replace an electric or gas-powered product, I post it to my Fossil-Fuel-Free Pinterest board so I can find it later. I am not selling any of these products. I do not receive compensation from any product manufacturer or retailer.
