Welcome to Sustainable Sundays! I’m so glad you’re here. This is a link party focused on eco friendly, sustainable practices. We’d love to have you link up posts about gardening, upcycling, homesteading, natural foods and recipes (nothing from a box!), reducing, reusing, and recycling.

It has finally warmed up here in Nova Scotia. And by warm I mean it might hit 80F – downright chilly for some of my readers!

When I planted my potatoes, I did something rather silly – my father tilled up the patch very nicely and I immediately put down the potatoes and covered them with hay. My mistake? I didn’t let the chickens hunt out the bugs and worms first. My poor potatoes were a casualty of war. Luckily, they’re coming up now, but they were pecked and broken up and moved all over the place so that I no longer have nice rows with a walking path. This should be interesting!

Most Visited Post: This recipe for Sofritas from Morsels of Life was one of the two most visited posts from the week. This looks amazing! Have you made sofritas before?

Most Social: For the most social feature, we chose this Sauerkraut recipe from Skip The Bag– this post was also tied for most visited post!

Marie’s Choice: Oh, I can’t help but pick How to Repurpose Cans. The one thing I hate about buying anything in cans is … well, the cans! Even though they can be recycled, I wish there were more ways to use them. Check out this very pretty upcycle.

Simple Party Rules 

  • Link up to three posts that you’ve created that you’d consider relevant to the topic of sustainability. We reserve the right to delete any link that does not appear to fit the theme of this link party.
  • Links are shuffled so regardless of when you add your link, the link will show up in various different locations.
  • No Etsy shops or affiliate links please. Giveaways are fine if they are part of a relevant and informational post (ie. you write a post about how to compost and giveaway a tumbling bin). 
  • Don’t link and run! Visit some of the other posts, leave a comment, pin, stumble, etc. the posts you love. We’re here to support our fellow sustainable living bloggers!
  • By linking, you agree that the photos are your own or that you have specific permission to use them and that posts may be shared on social media with attribution to you. 
  • We are hoping to feature one person each week who was the “most social.” I know a lot of people link and run. It happens, it’s not cool, but it’s hard to truly track. But for the people who spend time checking out other people’s links and sharing them, this feature is for you. Leave comments on other people’s blogs, share their posts on social media, and add the hashtag #SustainableSundays so we can easily find you. 
  • Please grab the party button below and place it anywhere you desire on your site. This is a great way to show others your features and lead them to other sustainable blogs and materials. The code below is no follow code to comply with FTC guidelines.
