Appropedia: The sustainability wiki

"We at Appropedia passionately believe in the ability to easily share and find information so that each of us can focus our time and energy where it will have the most impact. Appropedia takes on the administration of collaboratively characterizing problems, solving problems, organizing information, project examples, best practices, how tos and authors, allowing Sustainability, Appropriate Technology, and International Development organizations and individuals to focus on what they do best.

The Appropedia Vision is that by reducing or even eliminating the costs of working together, the community of people and organizations that seek to make a difference will quickly shift from ad hoc collaboration to a deeply collaborative approach. We at Appropedia believe that this deep collaborative approach is both possible and essential to addressing the significant sustainability gaps that humanity is now coming to acknowledge. "

Thanks for the link to Appropedia. You may want to check out our waste pages. We have had a couple zero-waste events (like (SfGS Zero Waste Party and HSU Car Free day) planned on Appropedia and I will make sure to point out your great blog to some of those organizers.
