The Carnival of the Green is a weekly blog phenomenon concieved of over pints of beer in London between Al Tepper and Nick Aster of TriplePundit almost five years ago. It travels from blog to blog every Monday. TreeHugger became Carnival central in 2006 and each week we will point you to the Carnival every time it rolls into town. If you're a blogger who likes to talk about green, then please sign up as a host!
Read on to find out where the carnival will be and to learn how to host:HOSTING CARNIVAL OF THE GREEN
To be considered as Carnival of the Green host please email kara (at) treehugger.com with the date (every Monday) you would like to host. Because many blogs come and go, please note that your blog MUST show an interest in the green community, in addition to being "live" for an extended period of time. We will review all requests and notify you if the date is available.
As host you will receive, just for Monday to Monday of your week, all email sent to the carnivalofgreen (at) gmail.com email address.
It is up to you to make the Carnival of the Green happen each week. Do whatever you can...it should be fun not stressful!
To submit a post for consideration to the Carnival of the Green (do not submit content - just a link to your post), please email carnivalofgreen (at) gmail.com (Subject: Carnival of the Green submission) with the following info:

SUBMITTING YOUR POSTS VIA TWITTER
We recently announced that the Carnival of the Green will now include a Twitter section. You can still submit as normal via email, of course, but this new part of the Carnival will be called "Best Green Tweets." So, if you use Twitter and have a recent (i.e. in the last couple of weeks) green tweet that rocks make sure to read on to find out how you can submit to the Carnival each week and drive more viewers to your site.
It's simple: just tweet the link to the green tweet that you think rocks and use #bestgreentweets to get it included. Not all will make it in though so make it good and make it quick.
This Carnival is a summary, a digest, of the green blogosphere. When we say green we mean sustainability issues, etc. as opposed to plain old general Green Politics. Each host has the right to include whatever they wish and/or whatever they feel is worthy of being in the Carnival.
