  1. Green cooking

    In the summer, we barbecue everything. Or should I say that my husband barbecues ...I know that we save a lot of energy that ways and it is one of the best ways to cook because the food is always delicious.
  2. need vegetarian recipes

    Both of the sites that were posted had great ideas that I can't wait to try. I found these wonderful chicken patties that were made out of veggies, I fried it up added a little lettuce and mayo and it tasted just like a chicken sandwich. I was fast and easy for dinner on the go.
  3. Wildlife at Chernobyl

    I saw some pictures of it the other day and couldn't believe how green and beautiful it was. I know humans couldn't live there without some sort of nuclear protection still and it will be that way for 1000's of years. After looking at those pictures I wondered how those animals had adapted. It was a neat to see them out in nature as they are supposed to be.
  4. I am from the Western U.S.. I think that more stops with public transportation and a quicker schedule would help promote the use of public transportation. I have to walk quite a ways to get to work and I actually have to drive to another city to catch a train to get to my work. If there were a few more stops I would take public transportation every day.
  5. Record-breaking 154 meters wide wind turbine

    I love this, what a great thing to produce energy this way and with something so massive. I would love a small turbine in my yard to help produce energy to cut my electric bill, but to also be more energy efficient and conscious about what "regular" energy is doing to our world. I am all for more turbines such as this being built.
  6. Food wastage.

    I grow most of my own fruits and vegetables. I compost all of the scraps and then also feed a lot of the scraps to my chickens which then fertilize the garden and it is just a cycle. So, in reality I don't believe I have a lot of food waste because it is just a cycle.
  7. I like the idea of vertical farming, and I think that because it wouldn't take up as much space as regular farm that we would be able to grow a lot more food with it. I actually do a very small type of vertical farming by growing a lot of different fruits and vegetables along my fence and holding them up with nets. It doesn't take much space and it is quite fun to do and watch.
  8. Healthy and environmentally friendly diets

    I recently became a vegetarian and have noticed in just a few weeks that I feel a lot healthier and have more energy than I did before. I make spinach smoothies everyday for breakfast and eat a lot of fruit and vegetables throughout the day.
  9. Soapnuts nature's detergent

    I have never heard of these before!! Where do you get them? I would love to try them out and see if they really works. I love to try things that are good for the environment and really work. I want to try these, I am very curious about them.
  10. How much Rubbish do you throw out ?

    I compost all of my food waste and try to reuse any canisters that I have. Unfortunately, I still have a lot of waste that I throw out each week that is not recyclable. It is too bad really I wish there were more things in my area for recycling and reusing products.
  11. Green Bag

    I use green recycled bags when I grocery shop. I will get some plastic ones on occasion because I like to reuse them for garbage can liners in my bathroom. The majority of the time though I do use my green shopping bags for my groceries.
  12. I love these. I used to make necklaces out of paper like the ornaments. I thought the can Christmas Tree was genius. I think I may try to make some ornaments. They are great.
  13. 10 Completely Bizarre Eco Gadgets

    I would probably buy the mini garden just because I love things like that. HA HA....I really couldn't find actual uses for any of these. Thanks for posting these, they gave me a good laugh.
  14. Is anyone a "prepper"?

    I have a good supply of food and water. We have an ample supply of camping supplies and alternative sources of heat and electricity like generators and wood. I live in a very rural area as it is and we have to be prepared all the time because our power and water are a bit iffy.
  15. Power from Septic Tanks

    We are on a septic tank system where I live. I have read about generating power from them and it really interests me a lot. I am wondering about the expense and if you could just go ahead and set something up yourself to do it at your own home. It is a curious thing, I would be willing to do it and anything for an alternative source of energy.
