    There’s all sorts of advice on GreenAnswers depending on what questions are being asked, but remember, here you have the power to make the questions.   

    Some other sites I recommend are:

    http://www.transitionnetwork.org – This is the Transition Town home page.  They are focused on making local self-sufficient communities as a solution negative human impact on the earth and Peak Oil.  Check out their resources.  They’ve got lots of stuff you can download and read online.  

    http://www.storyofstuff.org – This is full of information about how you can ecologically navigate yourself through the not so eco-friendly consumption-driven culture most Americans live in. Former Green Peace employee, Annie Leonard, has created several videos for the site.  

    http://www.motherearthnews.com – This gives advice and do-it-yourself instructions in many areas from gardening to construction to energy systems to making shampoo.  

    Also, consider looking by area of interest.  For example, if you’re really into eco-friendly living and bees there’s a sustainable beekeeping forum: http://www.biobees.com

    I really like to look on GreenAnswers for eco-friendly advice. The people on this site are great with answering questions based on facts and personal experiences. I also like it because unlike other question and answer/board sites, people don’t have an elitist attitude. 

    Other than GreenAnswers, Tiny Green Bubble is a good one too!

    Depends what kind of advice you’re looking for (duh 🙂 ) but I have found that people’s blogs are a great place to start.  They’re great because they’re really personal and the person is not only giving advice but they’re also telling you their story so you get to hear the ups and downs that comes with trying anything new (like eco-friendly living or all natural shampooing or vegan/raw diets).

    One of my favorite sites/blogs is by a girl named Megan Elizabeth.  She struggled with health problems for a lot of her life until she started eating raw.  When she did that her life literally turned around and now she’s super healthy and blogs, writes, videos, etc. about her experience.  She’s really funny and she offers actual professional advice — as in, you can pay her to help guide you on going raw.  Check her out here: http://meganelizabeth.com/blog/

    Another great blog (on going vegan) is: http://eatair.blogspot.com/2007/09/i-love-challenge-or-veganizing-paula.html. 

    Another fave is Naturally Savvy: http://www.naturallysavvy.com/

    P.S. I also agree with mcoffey.  Buzz around GreenAnswers for even a few minutes and you’ll be amazed at the range and variety of questions/answers on here.  Really really interesting stuff!
