Check out my latest post at The Green Phone Booth:
Drink Pouch Brigade
And elsewhere on the Internet:
I don't have much time to write a post tonight. I spent the evening up to my elbows in soapy suds tainted with the sweet smell of slightly fermented "juice"...I've joined my son's school's drink pouch brigade.
Rotating with three other mothers, I pick up the week's load of drink pouches from the school cafeteria, snip the tops off, wash them out, dry them, and then return them to the school. All so the school can get $.02 per pouch.
:: Grist's Tom Laskawy has a very interesting article about the pros and cons of Whole Foods' plan to build mobile slaughterhouses.
:: maya*made's toilet paper roll advent calendars from this year and last year are da bomb. Can I gush anymore about how much I love maya*made?
:: Pragmatic Environmentalism writes, "To save energy, use the dishwasher?" Yes!
:: Imagine Childhood has one very awesome way to get a Christmas tree.
:: The Daily Green claims that "everything you know about going green is wrong."
:: KitchenStewardship provides an extensive list of ideas for repurposing kitchen containers.
:: Quince and Quire has come up with a way to recycle ribbon spools and last year's Christmas cards in the same crafty project.
:: My favorite food writer, Tom Philpott, writes at Grist about our inequitable food system. Besides his own great comments, all of the articles linked to in that post are worth a look.
