MNN is proud to host this weeks edition (#176) of the Carnival of the Green, a weekly traveling blog series that collects great green content from a variety of sites to bring together in one place.

The Carnival of the Green was started by green blogosphere stalwarts Al Tepper and Nick Aster of Triple Pundit and is hosted by our friends over at Treehugger (managed by the super awesome Kara Dicamillo). It has been around for over four years, and has a year long waiting list to host. The Carnival is a great way to discover new blogs and content and I'm really happy to help bring it to MNN this week. I'm taking the green baton from the host of lasts week Carnival, Green Living Online and will pass it on to next weeks host, Green Me.
