Did you know it takes 12 bees a lifetime to produce one teaspoon of honey? Bees do a lot more than just produce honey, however.

Going Green – Be green—don’t waste food

America is the land of plenty where food is piled high on tables in homes and restaurants, but what’s leftover gets thrown in the trash.

Going Green – Wrap gifts the classy, eco-friendly way

Wrapping Christmas gifts in eco-friendly ways inspires me to reuse and recycle with as much creativity as possible. I like to have the outside packaging or container also be a gift.

Going Green – Go green by freezing fall’s bounty

My mother and aunts spent many hours canning fresh summer fruits and vegetables over a stove in a hot Oklahoma kitchen.

It locks in that “just picked” taste while effectively […]

Going Green – Live green and be budget wise

You can go green without breaking the bank. It would be nice to buy new fuel-efficient cars, build new environmentally friendly houses and purchase expensive eco-friendly products. However, this is just not possible for many people who really care about the environment but don’t have the resources to make drastic changes in their lifestyles. Instead, […]

Going Green – Respecting our good earth all year long

Going Green – Respecting our good earth all year long

Earth Day comes but once a year on April 22, but we should respect our good earth and practice environmental awareness all year. Earth Day was started in 1970 during a time when Americans were living in a world where cities were buried under smog and rivers caught fire because of industrial pollution.  This annual […]
