Marie, a blog-reader from Gatineau, sent me a link to a fabulous resource for everyone in the region: an on-line directory of environmentally-friendly shops and services on the Quebec side of the river.  The Green Directory (Le Bottin Vert) includes a guide to green living in Gatineau with lots of useful links, as well as a searchable directory of where to find green goods and services and where to bring used goods for re-use or recycling.

The Green Directory is a service provided by the City of Gatineau:

The Green Directory for the English version.

Le Bottin Vert for the French version.
