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.

People say to me, “How could you have not heard about downshifting when your focus is on green and healthy living?” My only answer to this is, “I guess I have been living in a green bubble.” Actually, my bubble (more…)

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 (more…)
