Least Green States in the U.S.

Video by TDC.
This list is not a list to be proud to make. In this video, a brief overview is given of the top ten least green states in the U.S. and why they made this list. The criteria for this list is energy consumption, pollution issues and state energy policies. Do you live in one of these states? I found that I have lived or worked in more than one of these states.

Rubber Mulch for Home & Play Ground

Image courtesy of Stoonn at FreeDigitalPhotos.netI don’t know about you, but I find mulching and especially re-mulching to be a difficult task. The thing that I dislike the most is the fact that it must be redone every year otherwise it loses its appealing color. If you live a busy lifestyle as I do, then finding landscape mulch that not only lasts a very long time, but also fits into the green Continue reading
