Tracing Green is one year old today, and it’s been a roller coaster of a first year. We’ve published 37 articles ranging from green building to technology and construction to eco-lifestyles to the environment and not forgetting reviews, news and comment!  That’s one article every 10 days, helping you to make sense of sustainability in the North East. The response from readers has been great.  We’ve topped 200 followers on Twitter, have a growing list of likes on Facebook and an expanding mailing list – if you haven’t signed up yet, then click here to subscribe and make sure you don’t miss another post!  The highlight of our first year was winning a North Easter Blogger Award in November.  As a thank you to all our readers, we bring you the best of 2015!
