Green Business Blog Carnival #16

Are you ready to eat some funnel cake!!

Well you better be because we’re getting ready to dive into some of the richest, moistest, most savory funnel cake this weeks green blogosphere has to offer – Welcome to the Green Business Blog Carnival, Contest #16!
If you missed last weeks contest, head over to Doc’s Green Blog to get your fix.

And without further ado, lets welcome this weeks top contenders:

In Green Washing we have Nick, from, who tells us about a not so sweet idea from the jokers over at the corn lobby to change the name of high fructose corn syrup to “corn sugar.” If you haven’t heard about this yet, it’s a must read. This has been all over the news and blogosphere and has completely blown up in the face of the corn industry.
In Green Energy we have Antonio, from, discussing the differences between renewable and sustainable energy and some of the controversies surrounding types of renewable power.
In Eco Awards we have Jeff, from, who’s giving us the skinny on Alex Eaves, founder of Stay Vocal (a company that sells redesigned used t-shirts) who is promoting his Green America People’s Choice Award nomination with a US tour… along with singer/songwriter Dandelion Snow.
In Health and Wellness we have David, from, who’s put together a list of10 toxic ingredients to avoid when shopping. You must be 48 inches or taller to ride this one folks – it can get a little scary.
In Social Resources we have Lorna, from, who’s assembled a meaty list of the best social entrepreneur blogs. If you run a socially oriented business or are thinking about starting one, get your bookmarking tool ready.
So that’s the lineup.
Thanks to all our contestants for sharing such wonderful content! I’ll speak for myself and say that after reading all that tasty cake, I’m feeling plump and happy – hope you are as well :-).
