I was reading my 2011 recycling calendar produced by my city and found a really interesting article about the mysterious ways of recycling. I didn’t realize how many amazing transformations are the result of my “trash”.

Come January you are going to be trying to find ways to squeeze back into those jeans (for me it’ll be spinning)  While you think about ways to get leaner in the New Year, think […]

Apple cider vinegar is my go-to ingredient when I’m cooking. It adds an air mystery to  a cous cous, romances tarragon in a salad dressing. It teases the taste buds in potato salad. Not to mention it’s good for me.  My grandma swore by it. Another thing I swear by – my scanner. I have saved tons […]

Facebook has taken recent criticism seriously about their energy consumption. They have joined their IT cohorts to do the right thing  and have cleared the air in their data center by using fans to create better airflow management as well as containing this cold air to keep it escaping in the floors.

We were sitting around the table at our last Green Team meeting discussing ideas for projects we can take on. And idea popped in my head: Eco-wrapping. No, it’s not throwing down rhymes about the environment (though that would be pretty cool!) it’s about reusing materials for holiday wrapping to save a few trees. I’ve […]

One of my green team projects was to plant an herb garden in our office lunch room. Last month, I decided to fill our windowsills with some green love.

So it’s 7:15 and I was standing in a parking lot in the rain. I had reserved a car for  seven o’clock to do my grocery shopping and the person who has rented the car before me is late. I’ll be honest, I was annoyed and my hair  was looking terrible. Sometimes “doing the right thing” can be inconvenient. It […]
