I have a new obsession… Homemade soy yogurt!

Making yogurt is easy and delicious and like all DIY foods you make in your own kitchen… you know everything that went into it and it just couldn’t be fresher.

Soy yogurt is a plant-based food and is planet friendly by its very nature. Even the culture we use is vegan. When we choose DIY, we are avoiding packaging by decreasing waste pollution at the source.

In addition to reducing the proliferation of landfill package waste, when we eliminate waste before it has been created we minimize resources used in the production and delivery of goods. …read more of Make Delicious Dairy-Free Yogurt ~ Good For You and the Planet! here

Packaging, by its very nature is disposable. Meant to be tossed away… and is either the first or last thing we do when handing consumer goods.

Choosing products with less packaging and especially that which is recyclable or compostable can make an important impact, but can we do better? Can we decrease waste pollution at the source?

The best way to dispose of waste is to reduce the amount generated at the source. This lessens costs associated with recycling, solid waste disposal and landfills.

Source reduction is waste prevention and the first line of defense against the proliferation of waste. Eliminating waste before it has been created minimizes resources that are used in the production and delivery of goods. …read more of Save Money, Get Healthy and Eliminate Package Waste… Deliciously here

Along with all of us, the planet is not getting any younger and the constant assaults on the air, water and soil are rapidly taking their toll! There is no better time to make important changes in the way we do things and as summer outdoor living is upon us, let’s turn our attention to the ubiquitous barbecue.

Backyard chefs believe that food cooked over an open fire is especially tasty because the juices stay concentrated in the middle and the surface becomes seared with smoky flavor. Cookouts may well be the quintessential summer pastime but can be unhealthy for people and the planet. …read more of It’s Time to Green Up Your Barbecue here

7 Reasons Why Folding Bikes are Not Just for Commuters

Most people would think that folding bikes are only practical for urban commuters.   If you think that they are exclusively for those who cycle from the train, stashing their folded commuting bike at the office, it’s time to shatter that myth.

Ever since I got my folding bike last month, I have fallen deeply in love with them.  I keep asking myself “why didn’t I get one of these years ago?”

I don’t commute and I don’t live in an urban area, so you might be wondering, why all the sudden passion?

There are so many reasons beyond my initial motive, which was avoiding the whole bike-rack-on-the-car thing.   Been there, done that, ugh. …read more of 7 Reasons Why Folding Bikes are Not Just for Commuters here
