7 Great Green Daddy Blogs

Fathers blog, too!. (Photo: bbernard/Shutterstock)

Even though I rarely write solely about my family, I am often categorized as a mommy-blogger. My blog posts about going green and green parenting are lumped in with all of the other bloggers who happen to be moms, whether they write about the economy, health, or the intricate details of their child's latest meal. Some green bloggers find the term "mommy-blogger" too limiting. But it doesn't bother me in the least. It's who I am. I'm a mom. I'm a green blogger. I'm happy to be a member of both clubs.

In that spirit, and in honor of Father's Day, I wanted to take a minute to honor some of the web's best green daddy bloggers. Their wisdom and expertise covers the green arena...from hard-core eco-news, to social media's affect on green living, to green gossip...and all of it is well worth the read. So Happy Father's Day to all of the dads out there, and especially to those dads that are helping us all learn a little more each day to protect the planet.
