Cheers to the New Year!

Here’s hoping it’s a blast!

Green Resolutions.

Resolutions. Who can get their hands on last year’s list? It’s probably wadded up back in a drawer somewhere with forgotten aspirations. I guess the problem is sometimes the goals just seem daunting and unachievable.

Little Means Big.

If you’re looking for some green and cause minded resolutions other than putting your recyclables to the curb each week, here are some pretty easy ones to stick to. Even past the first week of January.

Smile every day. It makes a difference. Really.

Give someone an unexpected hug once a week.

Pay it forward. Go “no trace camping”, start a garden, donate a little time to a local cause or shelter, or lend a helping hand to a neighbor.

Cut back on paper towels and use dish cloths or fabric napkins instead. You’ll help to eliminate the 3,000 tons of paper towels that end up in landfills EVERY DAY.

• Try re-usable bags at the grocery. Over 1 million plastic bags end up in the trash EVERY MINUTE, so pop some in your vehicle to always have one on hand.

You’re probably already doing some of these, but think of this list as a thought starters for your own “resolutions” list.

So Happy New Year, everyone  – make it happen!

Happy Holidays

May they be filled with love and laughter.

The Fortitude of Fruitcake

Fruitcake. It’s one of those things. Either you love it or hate it. No in-between as far as I can tell. Me? I’d rather up-cycle that brick of fruit.

The Gift That Keeps On Giving.

Don’t have a fruitcake on hand to re-gift and are in a pinch for a last minute present? No worries, there’s still time to get that special someone something without without having to battle shoppers at the mall. Perhaps a membership to a favorite Museum or a Zoo for year long enjoyment?

Maybe a membership to a local harvest in which fresh food and goodies are enjoyed throughout the year http://www.localharvest.org.

Or, how about help wash down that fruitcake with a Monthly Wine Club Subscription http://www.theorganicwinecompany.com/owc/pages/shop_wineclub.shtml. Then just pop a note in a card telling the giftee what awesome gift they can look forward to. Done and done.

So, cheers everyone, and have yourselves a very merry Christmas!

Clean Green Pipes

The Holidays can be draining – or not. With all the festivities, holiday meals, and primping, have you noticed the water in your kitchen or bathroom sink may not be moving quite as quickly as it should?

Wash your troubles down the drain, naturally.

I’m sure you’ve used drain cleaner products found on grocery shelves or at the hardware store, but here’s something I’ve recently tried that I find works really well – if not better. Baking soda and vinegar.

• Pour in 1/2 cup baking soda into the drain.

• Then follow with 1/2 cup white vinegar.

• Let it sit for 2 hours and then run the warm water for a few minutes

It fizzes up kind of like a science experiment, who knew keeping your pipes running clean could be this much fun?

So, rather than using expensive drain cleaners try this and save your money for some extra holiday merrymaking. And oh, there’s a little something in it for Mother Nature, too 😉
