feedly. feed your mind.My reading list is eclectic. From homesteading blogs, tech news, engineering and infrastructure press releases, to photography and music sites. My interests cover a range of niches that are well reported in the online world.

A few weeks ago over a beer, a reader and colleague asked me what was on my reading list for sustainability type sites, and after throwing out the names of a few sites, it was pretty clear that our reading lists were quite common. Now this is good and bad. Firstly, it means that we have probably found the best of the best that are writing in the field, (that’s the good). The bad is that the level of writing and discourse on sustainability, (outside of the political and economic realm) is pretty thin. There are some really well written blogs covering important topics, but from my non-exhaustive searching, these seem to be few and far between. If you have suggestions on blogs or sites that you read that focus on sustainability (loosely categorized as including social, environmental, urban planning, resources, water, energy, finance, housing and possibly others), share them in the comments.

I’ll start, (in no particular order). [Note that according to Google, I subscribe to 177 RSS feeds across a wide range of topics, but I really should work on paring these down!]:

If you are interested in seeing what I’m reading, follow UrbanWorkbench on Facebook, I often share interesting articles there, “Like” UrbanWorkbench to see these articles.

Now it’s your turn. What sites do you read to get the latest “sustainability”news?
