Just Say It!


Submission Guidelines

Women of Green is an online community with a singular purpose: to turn up the volume of the feminine voice on behalf of our planet and the web of life that it supports. The feminine voice harks from diverse backgrounds and here at Women of Green we hope to encourage a dialogue between voices coming from the public arena as well as the personal realm. We believe that personal stories from local mothers have every right to exist alongside larger stories of business and environmental law (which also begin with a seed of the personal though they grow towards expression with a different vocabulary).

Our interests here at Women Of Green are broad, but the unifying thread of our focus is the importance of integrating and highlighting women’s ideas, dreams and designs. In our online forum, blog and radio show, we regularly cover such topics as:

-       ecological sustainability

-       clean technology

-       community organization and revitalization

-       corporate responsibility and innovation

-       environmental arts and media

-       social entrepreneurship and green business

-       sustainable design

-       social justice

-       home and family

-       food and nutrition

We welcome your stories and ideas. We encourage guest blog posts, article submissions, query letters and reprint offers. Contact carolyn (at) mindovermarkets (dot) com.

    I’m interested in doing a piece on how to turn trash into treasure. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.

    Manufacturing lags behind other sectors for the elementary reason that our manufacturing is so booming, and continues to cause productivity gains ahead of other industries like services. From 1970-1995, the US doubled production of manufactures, yet work in manufacturing declined sharply.

  3. Hi Carolyn!

    We’ve encountered each other in the cyber sphere and have a mutual client. I wanted to ask you if you think my blog idea would fit your needs.

    I have a BA in biochemistry (during the same period I came within one course of a BS in chemical engineering). Then, I got my MA in English and subsequently launched a communications and information management consultancy for sustainable businesses. However, I’m too removed from the action and have gone back to school for my MS in energy management.

    I am planning to launch a bi-weekly blog about being an over-40 mom who has gone back to school to advance the “new energy economy.” I have three main goals: provide a great life for my family, be a fun and awesome role model (and partner) for my daughter and husband, and save the world. Do I over reach?

    A pragmatic and light-hearted view of the daily juggling act between business, school, family and the bleeding edge of energy trends gives me the fodder for a great blog.

    I would like it to have a home. Are you interested?

    Thanks and keep up la vida verde!

    Thanks, Women of Green, for allowing us at Izilwane to publish an article about our work on your website. We look forward to reading more of your articles in the future, and to getting to know more of the pro-active “green” women out there, furthering such a crucial cause. All the best!

    this was provided in response to a question relative to what we (i) are doing individually to make a change:
    i always bring my bags with me to the stores i frequent; i conserve water using rain barrels for my garden; just put in a solar hot water heater; recycle, recycle, recycle; frequent thrift stores rather than buying new; have a hybrid car; whenever possible in a conversation i bring up conservation, avoiding processed foods,etc.; i feel good if i can influence just one person a day to make even the tiniest of changes because i know it will spread

    Hi there,

    Whole Woman is dedicated to the non-surgical treatment of prolapse through exercise and healthy local organic eating. I would like to talk to you about the possibility of working together. We are currently doing a project on powerful women, women’s voices, and what it means to make a stand and a change. I want to interview someone from this organization for our video. I am also writing a food blog on transitioning from the standard american diet to a Whole Woman diet as I cook though our cookbook. Check us out at wholewoman.com. We have over 5000 registered forum members and customers all over the world. It would be great exposure for you.

    All the Joy,

    Hi Amy,
    Love to talk to you. Feel free to connect with me at carolyn@mindovermarkets.com. Love what you are doing. Carolyn Parrs

    Why don’t you write about this for our “Be the Change” column. Love to hear your voice! Carolyn

  11. Greetings.Love to talk to You about Clean Technology and Women’s participation how can possible – women engagement at green economy?Peace, love n Best Wishes.

  12. Thank you so much for providing this space for women to share what they are doing to help the planet. I was so inspired to read about their hopes, dreams and accomplishments. I recently retired from teaching special education and have also been a long time environmental activist. I started an eco project in 1990 which is still going strong…. and I finallly wrote a little children’s book about the project. It’s called One Simple Thing. In solidarity, Paula

  13. I have published the 1st book in the “Olymp-i-a Green Challenge” series. Please click on the website link (https://www.smashwords.com/profile/view/idea4idea) and scroll down to see the book “Olymp-i-a Green Challenge 1.” You will probably need to open a free Smashwords account to download the book. Click on the book and enter the coupon code PP58C so you can download it for free. You will be able to download it in various formats (both for e-reader and computer viewing, including PDF file, etc.)

    I believe this is an evolution in e-books. The e-book engages people in the practice of positive ideas and actions for green-living. The e-book format has the unique functionality that allows active participation and sharing of ideas and actions among readers, all within the margins of the e-book. The e-book can be a private journal or an interactive forum for collaboration.

    I believe in the power of practice to create positive change. I hope you read the e-book and join in the journey.

    I welcome feedback!

  15. I’ve been browsing on-line more than 3 hours lately, yet I by no means discovered any interesting article like yours. It is lovely price enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the net shall be a lot more useful than ever before.

    After a year or two of soul-searching, in the quest of a new occupation (I am much to energetic to retire), I was called to inspire my sisters to take over leadership, for the good of all humanity. Thank you, men, for getting us all this far; it?s been a herculean task and you need a break. Now is the time for women to take the the reins and replace the old competition/acquisition paradigm with a more feminine one of nurturing/inclusion. What an exciting moment to be alive! You inspire me.
    I begin my first lecture tour cross-country on July 4th in Charleston, SC. Please check out my route here:
