Not your average Super Bowl Post

No matter who you want to win the big game tomorrow, or if you just want to watch the commercials, there is a high chance that you will be consuming quite a bit of food during it! Last year I made a Fruit-Kabob & Dip for a healthier snack choice, check it out! As you look about your kitchen, living room, or party tomorrow, and see the countless amount of food around, imagine comparing that to the hundreds of thousands of people you see on the TV screen at the arena! What happens to any of that leftover food after … Continue reading Not your average Super Bowl Post

Turn it Off-Sustainable America

Sustainable America is one of my favorite blogs to get updated on new eco-friendly technologies, as well as great ideas on how to become “eco-friendly”. A lot of my posts come from their articles!

Overshoot Day: August 20th, 2013

I know, I know, I missed posting this yesterday on the 20th, instead of today, the 21st. But the concept still applies, and it’s a horrbily frightening concept as well. We have already used up the natural resources that the Earth can produce this year. How terrible. So many people don’t believe in the affect that we, as humans, have on this beautiful planet. Yes, many of our natural resources are “renewable”. Those resources however “renew” themselves at a MUCH slower rate than we have been consuming them. That right there is the underlining issue. Living too Large on a Finite … Continue reading Overshoot Day: August 20th, 2013

Food Forests: The next community park?

The Sustainable America Blog just recently posted an article on “Food Forests“, and I have to say, I love the idea!! The idea of a Food Forest to create an agricultural environment that would hopefully be self-sustaining. The plants would be perennials and provide food year after year. A great mixture between community and personal gardening, but without too much human intervening or labor. There has been a very similar movement called Food Not Lawns, for your personal yard.

Earth Hour

Tonight, at 8:30 pm, many people will be turning off their lights for the Earth! Earth Hour is an amazing idea (at least to me anyways) about helping people come together about taking care of this wonderful planet that we live on. 🙂 All it’s asking is if you, and your family, could turn your lights off at 8:30PM local time, for an hour. That’s all you gotta do. Just turn off your lights, your tv, your computer, your radio. Simple. How would that help? “There is no doubt about it: the world is facing some of the most critical … Continue reading Earth Hour
