Fashionable and Environmentally-Friendly? It’s possible.

My husband and myself try to integrate being as green as possible in every facet of our lives. It is not as difficult as one might think. We have just recently moved we recycled, gave to charities and friends in need the belongings we no longer needed when down sizing.

College Chic

Being environmentally is a long process and a goal of mine, and I’ve been taking small steps to reach that goal- bringing reusable bags to the grocery store and recycling regularly. It’s no surprise that adopting this as a lifestyle is easy, and I’ve found that living on a college budget, along with the ongoing stress of school, makes for even more roadblocks. The next step for me is learning how to be trendy, while doing my part to help the planet.

Some of the facts I’ve found on the impact of the fashion industry on the environment is astonishing:

“According to the Institute of Sustainable Communication, the clothing industry is the second-highest polluter of clean water.”

“Combined, apparel and footwear production are responsible for approximately 8.1 percent of global greenhouse gas emissions.”

“It takes 713 gallons of water to make a single cotton t-shirt.”

Happy Easter

The growing trees, the new flowers
And birds that sweetly sing
Whisper to me that it’s Easter
Here is wishing warm for your soul
On Easter and always!
Happy Easter

 

We have had a cold spell with lots of snow and very little sun for months. I had not seen grass for months. In the last two weeks we have been having a warm spell of 2-9 C with snow storms in between. I saw my first snowdrop flowers and crocuses today. Spring is on it’s way. We are expecting two snow storms back to back coming our way. I do not care because today it was sunny 4 C. Spring popped up its head.

Happy Easter!

Reflections about Shades of Grey

Would you change? Thought provoking lyrics that I hope you enjoy as much as I have today.

Voices from the Margins

Carol A. Hand

Contemplating light versus dark
moderated by infinite shades of grey
sometimes the soft fuzzy colors of fog
or sharply bounded shadows on a sunny day
the pearl-toned texture of morning clouds
shifting hues with changing light
a respite from noontime’s glare or the inky ebony
of a stormy snowless moonless night

***

Softening contrasts of gradiating grey
creating a comfortable space
in between light and dark
where too many of us choose to stay

Liberating the colors of rainbows again
requires searching our souls, healing our pain,
letting go of illusions and unnecessary things
courageously willingly to face the unknown

“Change”
Music and Lyrics by Tracy L. Chapman

If you knew that you would die today
If you saw the face of God and Love
Would you change?
Would you change?
If you knew that love can break your heart
When you’re down so low you…

How to make Aloe Vera oil

This a great tutorial and recipe on how to make Aloe Vera Oil. It gives you a good list of its uses. This would be a great gift idea as well. I plan to make some for us. We use aloe Vera plants on burns, mosquito bites, as a face mask and eat it to aid digestion as well. This would be a great gift idea as well.

John McCain Selling Apache Holy Land

The United States government has a long history of breaking legally binding agreements with Native Americans. This action is happening in present day. It should be stopped. The USA should be pressured into upholding past agreements. The Apache peoples rights should be guarded and protected by the people of the world. They are trying to protect the planet for all of us.
