Gardening
Plants create oxygen, so gardening is always a good thing. There are strategies and challenges to it too. It isn't just planting the seed into the soil, watering it sometimes, and letting nature take its course. There are certain plants you have to strategically plant according to season, terrain, and to get them however much sunlight they might need.

Cloth Diapers
Love cloth! saves lots of money, saves on emergency trips to the store for MORE diapers, great on the environment, fun stylish designs that you can't get from disposables. We've had less leaks, less messy explosions and yes, even less diaper rashes.

Volvo V60 Diesel Plug-In Hybrid Car
This may not sound like a big deal at first. What, another hybrid? But, this is much bigger than that. The Volvo V60 PHEV is a plug-in hybrid electric vehicle that runs not only on battery power but on clean diesel fuel as well. I’m getting all green with excitement, now. According to Volvo the V60 PHEV Diesel has 3 different temperaments of operation: • “In Pure the car runs only …

Reusable Shopping Bag
I'm a huge fan of reusable shopping bags and feel so naked when I go grocery shopping without them.  Some have voiced concerns about them getting germy over time, so my suggestion is to skip over those 99 cent plastic bags (they break really easily anyways) and pay the $5 for a sturdy cloth ones which can be tossed into a washing machine.  Mine have lasted me for years.  Note: mine …

Community Gardens
Last year, I was given an honor assignment of documenting the development and growth of a small community garden at Wicker Park Grace, a small Christian spiritual community in Chicago. I was happy to be a part of the project, which was a runaway success. Shooting the videos was tricky because I had a group of people who were either averse to appearing on camera or didn't have the time to do so even …

Reusable Shopping Bag
I realize it's a way to save on the plastic we use for bags, which is a plus. But these suckers wear out, and when they do, they are neither recyclable or biodegradeable.
reviewed Recycling Myths. June 06, 2011
Myth behind recycling?
Myth: Someone goes through the trash and pulls out the recyclables before it goes to the landfill.Anything thrown into the trash will end up in the landfill. The labor required to sort through trash after it has already been mixed is prohibitive and almost never happens. The only feasible way of separating recyclables is "source separation," meaning each person separates their trash at the time they …

Bottled Water
Another one of those great corporate tricks used on naive suburbanites to make them believe they're living healthier. Really, in this country we have access to the very best, cleanest tap water on the planet, and we've managed to trick ourselves into thinking we're doing ourselves good by paying three bucks a bottle. This isn't a healthy choice; it's a middle-class status symbol which, FYI, is produced …

Walking
Walking is that simple, basic, everyday human function in which you place one foot in front of the other in order to propel yourself forward. It's something that absolutely everyone who has ever lived knows how to do, and the VAST majority of the human population does it or at the very least has been capable of doing it in their lifetimes. It's useful as a means of transportation and exercise, especially …

Recycling
The concept of reusing materials is fantastic. But I do frequently wonder what kinds of materials, chemicals, and energies are used in the actual recycling process. How much consumable energy is used in recycling, and what kinds of cleaning chemicals are used? I find it immensely disturbing that the environmental experts I asked these questions to were stopped dead in their tracks and didn't have …

Scotts Organic Group
There are a lot of different types of potting soil on the market today, so how do you choose which one to buy. The easiest way that I know is to ask the attendant on the floor that stocks the shelves in your local home improvement store. Ever since we started setting pots inside of our garden several years ago, we have been using this particular potting mix and have never been disappointed with the …

Earth Day and Conservatism   April 22, 1970 was the first designated Earth Day and was also the 100th anniversary of Vladimir Lenin, the Russian Marxist Revolutionary and Creator of the Soviet Communist Party.

Nutiva Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil, 54-Ounce
I first bought Coconut oil at the health food store and spent ten bucks for a 16 ounce container. Once I realized the flexibility and benefits of coconut oil, I wanted a better price. This is it. Though this price varies (I've spent in the range 35-45 dollars for 128 ounces on Amazon which amounts to a significant drop in cost to what I paid locally.)the price is right.      …
